Century library giving free masks, sanitizer
July 30, 2020
Beginning Wednesday, July 29, Century Branch Library, located at 7991 N. Century Boulevard, is now offering a bottle of hand sanitizer in addition to face masks as part of Escambia County’s public health campaign, "Mask Up, Escambia!"
The library is open Monday through Friday, 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The campaign, which began July 1, is focused on informing residents and visitors that masks are recommended by the CDC to protect others.
In addition to a 2 ounce hand sanitizer bottle, the public may continue to pick up a free mask while supplies last. The county offered 27,000 free masks to residents throughout the public health campaign and still has supply at other locations in the county.
"Escambia County is pleased to be able to offer free hand sanitizer in addition to a free mask for the public during this unprecedented time," said Emergency Manager Eric Gilmore. "Unfortunately, it sounds like COVID-19 is not going away anytime soon we are urging the public to continue to focus on staying clean to stay healthy. The county has supplies, and we are doing everything in our power to encourage the public to 'Mask Up' and stay clean."
