SFL staff will continue to wear masks inside the library and ask that all visitors do the same. Our patrons include a younger group that is unable to be vaccinated at this time. In order to set an example for them, and in an abundance of caution to be sure that they and others unable to be vaccinated are safe, we ask that all patrons continue to wear masks. Thank you!
