Tobacco Free Communities Information

With these challenging times stress can get the best of us and smoking is often a source of relief to many, but as it has been stated smoking can lead to a greater susceptibility towards Covid-19.  

As you may know the library is a tobacco free space, as is the area outside the library.  Please continue to follow these guidelines to protect all community members, as well as yourself.

If you are considering quitting, please reach out to Tobacco Free Communities of Deleware, Otsego & Schoharie Counties.  They can help provide free resources to help you quit.  

Attached is more information on tobacco free community spaces.
