Welcome to your library, we are delighted to see you!

As we continue to respond to the ongoing pandemic, we have some guidelines in place for our users:

  • Face masks are currently strongly encouraged inside the library for all individuals ages 2+, regardless of vaccination status. Masks are available at all library service desks. Individuals who cannot medically tolerate wearing a mask or face covering may call the library at 757.741.3300, option 2 before visiting so that reasonable accommodations for service can be made.

  • Masks are required in the Kiwanis Kids Idea Studio at the James City County Library for all users ages 5 and older. This change aligns with current K-12 school requirements in our area.

  • Effective Tuesday, August 17, the interactive elements and toys in the children’s areas in both library buildings will not be available. Additionally, as of that date all in-person, indoor children’s programming is being cancelled, delayed, or moved outside. This page will be updated whenever WRL is able to resume normal operations on these fronts.

Here are some of the changes we have made for user and staff safety:
