COVID-19 Visitor Guidelines

Procedures and Safety Protocols for the Library Arts Center

The Library Arts Center is excited to welcome to you back into the gallery with the following safety protocols in place, in light of the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Please carefully read and make note of the following policies before visiting the Library Arts Center.

Masks must be worn at all times when in the Library Arts Center.

*According to the current Pandemic Policy set forth by the Board of the Library Arts Center and Trustees of the Richards Free Library.   Face coverings are required for all visitors over the age of two. Additionally, face coverings must be worn for the duration of your visit.  CDC guidelines advise that face coverings should:

  • Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nose
  • Fit snugly against the sides of the face

If you accidentally forget your mask, the Arts Center is happy to provide you with one upon entry.

A limited number of people will be permitted into the gallery at one time.

*Due to the limited size of the gallery space, we are limiting the number of patrons at one time in order to promote the ability for greater physical distancing.  Please enter through the Library Arts Center’s MAIN ENTRANCE so that you may be counted as you enter.  If there are not enough spaces for you and those with you in your party, please kindly wait until available spaces open up.  It may be advantageous to visit at off-peak times.

Stay home if you are feeling ill or are experiencing respiratory symptoms, or if you have come into contact with someone who has tested positive for COVID-19.


Sanitize Your Hands when entering the space.

*Please make sure you use our hand sanitizer at the entrance, and make intentional choices when touching the crafts in the gallery in order to mitigate the spread of germs.

If you are visiting from out-of-town, please make note of NH State Quarantine Guidelines before entering.

*If you are visiting from states or countries outside of New England, current NH State guidelines require quarantining for 14 days.
