Mask up at MRL


On Tuesday, April 6, 2021, Governor Holcomb’s mask mandate becomes a mask advisory. Following the guidance of the Wayne County Health Department, the Board of Trustees of the Morrisson-Reeves Library have agreed that masks will still be required for entry into the library building. Curbside service is available for those who choose not to wear a mask and other services can be provided virtually. Please call the library at 765-966-8291 if you have questions or need assistance.
