Libraries Continue to Provide Services with Safety Practices

Live Oak Public Libraries remains committed to helping slow the spread of COVID-19. Due to the increase in cases in our region and the recommendations of public health officials, masks are required at all library locations.


Safety as Priority

The well-being of library customers, staff, and the community is our highest priority.  To help protect yourself and others, please follow safety practices:
  • Face masks are required. 
  • Visits are limited to 2 hours per person per day.
  • There are a limited number of people allowed in buildings at a time.
  • Maintain a minimum 6 feet in physical distancing.
  • Stay home if you are feeling sick, have symptoms of COVID-19, or are in quarantine.
Library staff are also expected to comply with safety requirements:
  • Pass screening before entering buildings.
  • Wear masks and personal protective gear.
  • Respect social distancing and hygiene measures. 
  • Follow protocols for cleaning of surfaces and equipment.
