Back to School: What to
Expect at the Library
School started this week, and typically we’re excited to see all the after-school visitors return to the library for studying, meeting up, or engaging in programs. But, as you can imagine, the library will not be back to normal operating procedures this fall. We remain in Phase 3 of our re-opening plan offering essential services only with no in-person programming, limited seating, masks are required, and social distancing in place. The library strives to provide a safe environment for visitors of all ages.
Unfortunately, students will not be able to use the library after school for gaming, socializing, or waiting for rides or practices to start. Students may use the library, as would an adult, to quickly browse for materials, study at an available distanced table, or log into the internet either using the wi-fi connection or a library computer for up to one hour. With these temporary restrictions in place, please plan accordingly.
Librarians are available and happy to answer reference questions, make reading recommendations, or assist with digital library services like Overdrive or BadgerLink.
As our re-opening restrictions change, we’ll update you here, in our newsletter, and the library’s Facebook page.
We thank you for your cooperation and wish your family well for the 2020-2021 school year.
Book Club and Wednesday Morning
Knitting Resume Online
September is almost here, and that means it’s time to start our fall programming. In-person library programming is still suspended, but we can continue to gather virtually using our computers or device of choice. If you’re a knitter or a reader, we welcome you to our Zoom events. Call or email the library to request a link for a meeting.
Wednesday mornings at 9:30, fiber enthusiasts of all stripes are invited to join me and show off all you’ve accomplished while holed up at home. We’ll also discuss what roadblocks and solutions you’ve found to satisfy your fiber fixation.
Thursday, September 17th, at 6:30 PM, we’ll return to our book club discussions. We have copies of Yangsze Choo’s The Ghost Bride available at the library for checkout. It’s been some time since last we’ve chatted, and a haunting story based on an ancient tradition will provide plenty of inspiration for conversation.
