In light of the recent decision by the Vermillion School District (VSD) to implement a mask mandate in all VSD buildings and all buses, and to help support community safety and reduce community spread, the Vermillion Public Library is enforcing a mask required policy for all 2-18-year-olds in the building for the next two weeks.

We would strongly encourage all other visitors to consider wearing a face-covering when in the library building and in close proximity to other visitors.

In the interest of public safety, your cooperation and understanding are greatly appreciated.
