It’s almost June, what has this virus done for us. The library is open again [limited hours, but open]. We were closed for part of March, all or April and part of May. We miss seeing all our patron. We can only have 3 patrons in at a time. Hopefully a few more in June.
Summer Reading will happen, but will be very different this year. Will be making a post on this later.
We didn’t get to have our Taco dinner fundraiser.
We didn’t get to have our annual “Open House”
Haven’t seen the library kids in ages. Some adult have been coming in since we opened.
No computers for now, limited to possible 2 in June.
No Concession stand at the fair [another fundraiser we can’t have]
No Game Tent at the Fair [another fundraiser we can’t have]
We are going ahead with our Raffle, but no Dinner to announce the winner. We will sell tickets at the library [social distancing still in play], You can come in and look at the baskets only 2 at a time], we will have them lined up on the tables in the west room. Board members will still sell tickets , but probably not like before since we can’t go to all the places we use to.
This raffle is one of our big money makers, it is usually paired with the Taco dinner. Instead we will set a date, probably in July to announce the winners. We will Draw names, tape them to the baskets, then post the winners on Facebook and call them to set up a time to pick up.
Social Distancing will be in play for quite a while. The library is small so we will probably not be able to have more than 3-5 in this building at a time for a while. Please be patient with us, we are doing the best we can.
