UPDATED INFORMATION FOR THE RUTHERFORD COUNTY LIBRARY SYSTEM

Following the county-wide mandate, all branches of the Rutherford County Library System will require masks to be worn inside facilities beginning Thursday, October 29.

Along with the mask mandate, RCLS branch library staff continue to play their part in mitigating the spread of the COVID-19 virus. RCLS staff wear masks when working with the public, work behind sneeze guards, keep public computers separated to comply with social distancing guidelines and limit their facilities to 50% occupancy during Phase Two.
