Any news on the Summer Reading Program?
Just found my library card again. Post house fire I had to redownload the libby app and I was worried I would have to go get a new one. It was hidden in my wallet where it was kept secret and safe. This is a truly fantastic day ♡♡especially since with the work hours I have I dont have the chance to make it to the physical library nearly as often as I would love to. #the_library_is_my_happy_place
In the interest of safety and common sense may I suggest you allow people to send a photo copy of current residence via email, to renew a library card. The library has shortened hours, I assume for the safety of the public. However you do not allow a completely safe procedure which would completely eliminate contact.. This is just a renewal not a new card. I’m trying to make sense of this. Surely someone there has the authority to authorize this simple change.
Thank you so much for hosting an amazing literacy night for the scholars at Starkey Elementary School!
A HUGE thank you to the person who turned in my cell phone to security!!! 😻
