For the month of August, we will continue our current hours of 2-5 p.m. Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Although we don’t have many patrons visiting us at this time, we hope that we are offering a valuable service. Of course, some stop in for books and DVDs, but others search for tax information, use the computer, or take advantage of our printing capabilities. We like to think our OPEN sign and sidewalk board are a welcome sight to those passing by.
When visiting the library, we still have the following guidelines in place. Please wear a mask and practice social distancing. Stay home if you are feeling ill. Use of the computer will be by appointment only and limited to business purposes. Our copy and fax services are still available. All returned library material will be quarantined until deemed safe for checkout again. We are doing our best to keep our patrons and staff safe.
Because of COVID-19, we are unable to offer our face-to-face children’s program, Education Nation this summer. As an alternative, we have Virtual Education Nation. Sign up via the library email at email@example.com or call the library if you are interested. The theme for August will be The Great Outdoors, and will be sent out Aug. 10 and 24. Enjoy sharing all nature has to offer with your children or grandchildren.
