      • The following programs have been cancelled at the Library:
        • All special events, group gatherings, and public meetings.

The decision to close these facilities is two-fold; it helps with "social distancing" and also provides time to sanitize, clean, and perform maintenance on these buildings for when the time comes to reopen. This time period is also consistent with Gov. Ralph Northam’s order that all K-12 schools in Virginia will be closed.
