The library continues to operate under social distancing guidelines. If you need to check out materials, please contact us by phone (353-2712), email at firstname.lastname@example.org, or via Facebook messaging. You may pick up the materials curbside. We are still taking requests for interlibrary loans, however, many libraries in the state are closed, so we cannot guarantee your requests will be filled. If you need to use a computer for important business please call to make an appointment. Also contact us if you need the Wi-Fi password to use on your own device. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.
You may be wondering what the library staff is doing during this shutdown. Carly and I have been busy cleaning and disinfecting all the furniture, equipment and toys. Carly has finished the inventory and I have been catching up on paperwork and filing. We have also been working on updating policies.
