It’s a good news/bad news week.
Good news: It’s possible the upstairs cleaning will begin next week (Oct. 4). The plan is to tackle the adult section first because damage there is limited. Then those books will be available for curbside. The crew will handle the children’s department next.
Bad news: Obviously the Friends of the Library can’t hold the book sale scheduled to begin Monday, Oct. 4. This is incredibly disappointing because the last sale was the fall of 2019. Then the pandemic hit. Proceeds from the sales and their upstairs bookstore support the library. The Friends recently provided a large infusion of funds for children’s books. They’ve also purchased shelving and seating for large programs. Programs they support cover the genealogy series, author events and more. When we reopen, please visit their bookstore!
