We are encouraging you, our loyal patrons, to hoard an unlimited number of books for the duration of our closure. On June 28th and 30th, during regular library hours (or the first week in July by appointment only) you are invited to check out as many books as you may want for the months ahead. Stock up on your favorite author; choose some works outside of your usual genre: get that book your kid hates to return. Beyond the entertainment and educational value, when you help yourself to a Big Box of Books, you help us defray the effort and cost of storage.
It is suggested that you safeguard the books in a plastic tote when not in use. We will have some totes available in the library at checkout time, but feel free to bring your own. Remember, first come, first served.
After we check out as many books as the community can absorb, we will tackle the daunting task of packing up the remaining books, shelving, furniture and supplies. While we have some ideas we haven’t yet committed to any particular storage facility. If anyone would like to donate a climate controlled pest free space suitable for the book collection, or just a dry space for the rest of the items, please let us know. And of course, volunteer labor is always appreciated.
