COVID-19 – March 15, 2020


Dear library people,

Mary and I are adjusting our strategies for library services now that more closures have been announced in response to the coronavirus. For now, here’s where we stand:

*All programs in the library are cancelled until further notice. This includes Friday Story Hour, Wednesday Playgroup, International Student Presentations, and any Rec programs that were to have been held in the library.

*We will be open Monday (tomorrow) regular hours, but may have limited hours or access after that. Feel free to stock up on extra books/videos, and be sure you know how to access our on-line resources. I’ll be posting more about these in coming posts.

*We will make every effort to deliver materials to you if you send us requests. Interlibrary loan services may be slow and/or limited depending on staffing in other libraries.

*All returned materials will be quarantined for four days before being returned to the shelves.

*Wifi is accessible 24/7 from outside the building. Public access computers, printer & photocopier will be available until the situation warrants full closure.

*We trust that you WILL NOT come in if you are symptomatic or have had known exposure; and that you’ll practice “social distancing” while in the building. We have soap and sanitizer for anyone needing our computer stations.

Please feel free to call, message or email with any questions or needs. STAY HEALTHY!
We can get through this together! (….with six feet of separation)

~ Best, Jan & Mary
