Library resumes regular schedule

Mon-Fri 9-12 and 3-5:30
Sat 9-1
Closed Saturday afternoons and Sundays

A brief flu update:
Schools are now back in session and observing stringent sanitary practices, including screening children as they enter the school to inquire if they have any possible flu symptoms. Out of necessity, the library is observing similar practices to make sure we are not aiding in the spread of this disease. Children observed to exhibit any symptoms are being sent home from school/the library and not allowed to return until they have been cleared by a doctor.

The library was thoroughly cleaned and disinfected on Saturday and is being wiped down daily after the children leave. Children are being taught how to properly wash their hands and cover their mouths when sneezing or coughing. Each child is being given their own supplies (pencils, crayons, etc) rather than sharing them communally.

We are NOT particularly concerned about this so-called pandemic becoming any worse, but we think it best to use caution and common sense. Most importantly, habits we can help the children learn to stay healthy now will help them stay healthy for a lifetime!
