Library Update: Operations Guidelines

In accordance with the revised protocols for St. Martin Parish Government facilities effective Friday, May 28, 2021, St. Martin Parish Library has revised operations guidelines as follows:

  • Masks or face coverings will no longer be required; however, masks or face coverings are still strongly recommended.
  • Due to social distancing guidelines, all branches will remain operating at 75% capacity and will continue to have a limited number of computers available for public use.
  • High-touch surfaces and library materials will continue to be sanitized frequently in accordance to CDC guidelines.
  • Public restrooms remain open; however, water fountains will remain unavailable.
  • Contact individual branch location for meeting room and study room availability.

Curbside service continues at each branch. Our in-house programming and our outreach services continue to be suspended until further notice. St. Martin Parish Library is hopeful that it may begin to transition to in-person programming in the fall of 2021. We continue to urge the public to utilize the library’s FREE online resources available on our website at
