WILLIAMSBURG — The Williamsburg Regional Library has announced temporary changes to protocols and restrictions for children’s programs and spaces.

The changes are in light of local rising COVID-19 cases and concerns about transmission rates among children who are too young to be vaccinated.

Effective Tuesday, Aug. 17, the interactive elements and toys in the children’s areas in both library buildings will not be available. The children’s areas and collections will remain open to all patrons.

All in-person indoor children’s programming is being cancelled, delayed or moved outdoors, including storytimes, kids’ book groups, and other performances and events for kids ages 12 and under.

These new restrictions will not affect programming for adult and teen patrons at this time.

“We are making these temporary changes to protect our community and we look forward to resuming full operations as soon as we can,” Betsy Fowler, library director, said.

Library patrons are encouraged to check the WRL website for the most up-to-date information on the status and locations of all WRL programs.
