Westerly Library asks that all patrons continue to wear their masks while in the building. We recognize that many individuals have received their vaccinations. However, to ensure the safety of our patrons and staff that still are yet to be fully vaccinated, we will continue to require all patrons and staff to wear their masks while in the library. Please know that we are working towards getting back to normal and appreciate your understanding and compliance as we move forward.
