March 2021 Library Updates

March has arrived and we look forward to having you visit the Library in person this month! We are continuing to work through the results of water pipes breaking in February and want to share our tentative schedule.

Saturday, March 6: The Library reopens! While two rooms (the Heritage Room and Story Time Room) will be closed due to carpet that needs replacement, we plan to reopen everything else. The children’s area will be in a slightly different format than usual in order to allow access to all the books; thanks for your patience while these collections remain a bit mixed up.

Saturday, March 13: Volunteers needed! Many of our books and bookcases will need to be moved in advance of the carpet cleaning and replacement. If you are willing to help with this project, please contact our Library Director! We plan to move books and 20+ bookcases starting at 2pm.

Monday-Wednesday, March 15-21: Library Closed. These dates are scheduled for carpet cleaning and replacement required from the water damage done in February.

Thursday-Saturday March 17-21: Volunteers needed! After the cleaning and replacement is finished, we will need volunteers to help reset the Library for reopening to the public. Volunteer times are not yet determined; please contact the Library Director if you would be interested in helping.

The Winter Library Program ends March 20. Tickets must be submitted by 2pm Saturday to be eligible for the final prize drawings; thanks to everyone who has participated!

The Spring Library Program starts March 22. All ages are welcome to participate in the Spring edition of our Library program, a booklet filled with self-paced activities and challenges for March 22-May 29. Booklets will be available to pick up starting March 20.

Tuesday, March 30: Library Closed. The Library staff are getting much needed updates to our computers. Since this will mean our system is down while the changes take place, we will be closed that morning for installations. If all goes according to plan, we plan to open later in the day at approximately 2pm.

Edited March 3, 2021 for updated tentative reopen date.

Edited March 16 for updated closure length and volunteer needs.
