CLEVELAND — The Cleveland Public Library will require masks inside all library branches starting Monday, August 23, according to a press release.

The library cites Centers for Disease Control & Prevention (CDC) guidance that recommends wearing a mask indoors in areas with high transmission rates.

The library will provide a mask if you do not have one. If you are unable to wear a mask, library services are also available by phone and curbside pickup, the release said.

The library also provides rapid, at-home COVID-19 test kits through the main library drive-up window.
