At The September 15th, 2021 Board of Trustees meeting it was voted that the Hepburn Library of Norfolk would modify it’s COVID procedures, policy guidelines and operations to match that of current CDC guidance. Summed up, that means that vaccinated visitors to the library need to wear masks as well as well as our unvaccinated visitors. We have masks available in the upstairs entry vestibule for anyone who needs one.
