Libraries requiring masks again


Starting tomorrow, Alachua County libraries are again requiring patrons to wear masks.

An email from Administrative Services Division Director Adam Brooks informed library staff that “Due to the increase in COVID-19 cases and Alachua County’s designation as a high transmission area, we have decided to require all visitors to wear a face mask covering the mouth and nose during their library visit.”

The policy will be effective tomorrow, August 12. According to the email, new signs were sent out to all branches today, and the website will be updated tomorrow.

  • sandiegozoo: The python is a constrictor. It grabs its prey with its teeth, then quickly wraps coils of its body around the prey and squeezes. The python doesn’t actually crush the prey and break its bones, though. Instead, it squeezes tightly so that its prey can’t breathe; each time its prey exhales, the constrictor tightens its coils to take up space, causing suffocation. The python can also feel the prey’s heart beating, so when it stops, the snake knows it is safe to release its coils and begin to eat.

  • So lemme get this straight. If I want to go to the library to study books by Karl Marx and Chairman Mao, I have to wear a mask? What kind of commies are running the library?
