We are delighted to report that Library programs are coming back into the building this fall. Our programming librarians are planning a wonderful selection of lectures, discussions, movies, concerts, story times, STEAM activities and more that will be offered in the building. Some programs will remain entirely virtual and others will be offered both in-person and virtually. The pandemic taught us many lessons on how to continue to provide library services and many innovations are the result. While we look forward to welcoming our patrons back for live programming, Zoom, Facebook Live, YouTube and other platforms are here to stay. As you know, things can change quickly and if we find ourselves unable to host group gatherings, we now have the tools and experience to quickly switch to virtual programming. Since children under the age of 12 cannot be vaccinated at this time, all participants in live children’s programs in the building will be required to wear masks.
Many Library programs are made possible through the efforts of the Friends of the Library. The pandemic didn’t stop our devoted Friends from continuing their efforts to raise funds for the Library. Like Library staff they found new ways to continue their mission. Please be sure to support them for their Donated Jewelry Sale under the tent on the Library lawn on Saturdays, August 7th and 21st from 10:00 am – Noon.
Please be sure to join us on the Village Green on Wednesday, August 11th at 7:00 pm for a presentation of Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night performed by the Hudson Shakespeare Company. In the event of rain, the performance will be offered in the auditorium at the LCJ Summit Middle School, 272 Morris Avenue. This program is made possible by the Manley Winser Fund.
We hope to see you in the Library or on Zoom in August.
