This year has stretched our imaginations. Here at The Community Library, our operations have evolved creatively each day in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic: From a curbside service to virtual programs to face masks, we have adapted practices and exercised flexibility to keep our community connected to ideas and to each other, and we have seen how our community has responded to the notion that we must all take care of each other.
Join The Community Library’s staff and board as we share what we’ve done this year to stay open and operating during the COVID-19 pandemic. Each department will share details about what has changed–from how to check out and return books, to our virtual programs, to spaces dedicated to solitude and studying–and how we foresee our operations evolving as we move into the winter months. We’ll also take you into the Library’s spaces, so if you haven’t been able to visit the Library, Gold Mine stores, or Regional History Museum this year, you’ll have a chance to see our completed renovation and adjusted operations that are meant to serve you.
We are grateful to you for your support, and we look forward to a healthy and hopeful 2021. In a time when we are often limited, let’s celebrate what we can do–READ! Exercise our imaginations resiliently!
