It does not affect us. The law only officially applies to "retail stores and
restaurants." Look under "What do businesses need to know?" here:


We did decide to start selling cheap reusable totes, but local people donate
their plastic bags to use to hand out.  So we'll probably keep accepting
donated bags for a while. I'm assuming that over time the donations will
eventually die down as most people transition to using reusable or paper

Subject: [Libs-Or] Bag ban questions


We have long had a habit of keeping a stash of donated plastic grocery bags
available to the public for carrying their items, especially on rainy days.
Does anyone know whether the bag ban would impact this, if we're reusing
plastic bags rather than purchasing them? Does the ban apply to public
libraries at all?
