The Menomonie Public Library announced today that they are joining many other businesses and organizations in the area by requiring face masks be worn by customers of the library. Their announcement requires masks on everyone age 3 and above who are visiting the library and goes into effect on Monday, August 3.

The announcement in full reads:

The Menomonie Public Library Board of Trustees has approved a policy change that will require all visitors age 3 and above to wear a face-covering or mask while in the library beginning Monday, August 3, 2020. This policy change reflects the Board’s concern for the health and safety of all library visitors, staff, and community.

With cases of COVID-19 on the rise in Dunn and surrounding counties, there is a need for all of us to take personal responsibility and wear a mask in public, which is recommended by health experts to slow the spread of the virus. Please help slow the spread of COVID-19 by wearing a mask so we can keep the library open. If you decide to visit the library, please bring a mask with you.  If you do not have a mask, one will be provided.

If you don’t want to wear a mask to come into the library, -how-to" data-et-has-event-already="true">curbside pickup is available, call 715.232.2164 to schedule. If you choose not to visit, digital resources are available on our website  and free Wi-Fi is always available in our parking lot.

Special Accommodation Requests

If you require an accommodation regarding this face mask and face covering policy for reasons based upon religion, medical condition or disability that prevents you from safely wearing a face-covering (e.g., certain respiratory, heart, or sensory issues), or other grounds protected by federal, state, or local laws, please contact Ted Stark, or 715.232.2164 x218, before your visit to the library.  You may request the accommodation orally or in writing.   To that end, if requesting an accommodation, you should include a basic description of the reason for the accommodation sought.  To help guide you, the following is a non-exhaustive list of potential accommodations:

  • Order by telephone for -how-to" data-et-has-event-already="true">curbside pickup 715.232.2164; and
  • Digital resources are available on our website  ; and
  • Browse the library’s collection during off-peak times, during which social distancing may be safely maintained.
