Please be assured that we have taken precautions to ensure the safety of visitors and staff during these times. If you don’t feel comfortable coming to the opening of the show, please come see the exhibition any time when the Olive Free Library is open to the public.

Here are some of our precautionary measures:
-everybody has to wear a mask when coming into the Gallery space or any other area in the Library
-hand sanitizer will be available in the Community Gallery
-arrows on the floor will show everyone how to move around the room
-most of the furniture will be taken out before the opening leaving only a few chairs inside the room that may not be moved
-there will be no food at the opening, just some small water bottles and juice bottles; nothing that can be shared
-both outside doors to the community room will be open so people don’t have to all enter or leave from the main library entrance.
