The Library Building is Open!

 I am grateful to announce that the Library building will re-open on Wednesday, October 14th.  We've not experienced any new outbreaks in our Community in over a week,  I feel it's safe enough to open our building with our previous safety measures in place.  Masks worn over the nose are required, hand sanitizing upon entering the building, and a visitor limit of 5 at a time will all still be in effect, as will our smiles for when we get to welcome you in the doors.

We will be doing curbside for the foreseeable future but we've adapted our procedures and curbside pickup will be at the back of the building by the glass doors.  We'll put the books on the table right by the door.  If you have mobility issues and have a hard time getting out of your car, library staff will offer to put your items in your backseat or trunk of your vehicle granted you are wearing a mask.

White Simple Open Book Quote
Our Fall Festival of Books and Art is still on!
We've carefully configured the entire Library grounds for safety.  The Artisan Fair will be on the South Lawn of the Library.  The Booksale will be on the Northside of the Library.  Our musical performers will be under the maple trees under the shade of the beautiful Maple trees towards the back and there will be 6 ft circles for seating.  Our Library swag tables will be right at our Main Street Entrance.  Our wonderful pumpkin bird feeder family activity will be located on the green grass near the parking lot.  Gotta Be Franks will be in the parking lot.
Please know that should we think that we can not hold the Book Sale or Artisan Fair safely, we will cancel the event until next year.
Our thinking all along has been that we can plan now and cancel later but we can't plan later.
Again, our thanks to Partners Bank for sponsoring our musicians and our family activity!
