We’re sifting through the local media haystack to provide you with easy access to the most recent, accurate news and information about COVID-19 and how it affects our lives. Keep an eye on our website right here, social media feeds (Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter), and your email inbox for updates!
Keep Connecting with the Community
In the coming days and weeks, we’ll be working hard to keep you connected with our community, providing info on things like the census (more here), and health department updates.
The library is also a partner and supporter of Volume One’s Pulling Together While Staying Apart initiative. Volume One has relaunched its website at VolumeOne.org to include updates on local services and closures; handy resources for those in need; and articles, essays, and videos to help us stay connected. They’ve also launched a new site to help support area restaurants through takeout and gift cards.
Join us for virtual programs and activities to help you and your family beat cabin-fever! Just check out our Facebook page in the mornings and afternoons for new stuff every day. Such as…
Our Youth Services staff is offering a number of online programs for kids at home. On Wednesdays at 9:30 a.m. you can enjoy “Baby Storytime LIVE” on the library’s Facebook page.

We encourage adults to visit our Dabble Box makerspace homepage for access to great DIY projects.
We’re all in this together, and we’d appreciate your support in spreading the word about our expanded services. Thanks!
