Curbside pickup at the Library has begun, and many patrons are taking advantage of this service. “The patrons are so grateful and pleased that they are able to check out physical items from the Library again. It makes me so happy to fill this need in the community,” said Library Director Lynn Zaffino. Curbside requests may be made by calling the Library at 203-261-0134 or by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The service is being offered Monday through Friday, 10am-5pm. The Library is also re-launching its Library To Go program, which delivers materials to homebound residents, especially those who are in at-risk populations due to the coronavirus pandemic. This is being offered in collaboration with Allison Witherbee, Municipal Agent for the Aging. Details on this service can be found at eastonlibrary.org.
Due to a scheduling conflict, the Library’s Virtual Family Bingo Night, scheduled for Tuesday, May 26, is postponed until next month. The new date will be announced soon. For those who would like to learn about using Instagram, the Library will offer a Virtual Instagram Workshop on Tuesday, June 2 at 7pm. Registration is required, and the Zoom link will be sent out the day of the program.
If you’ve run out of things to read or watch (as many of us have!), don’t forget to check out the Library’s new blog, featuring reviews of books, TV, and movies. If you see something that piques your interest, you may be able to download it or request it via curbside pickup.
If you’re interested in participating in the Library’s Oral History Project, the details are now posted on the website, which also contains a link to the official website for the Town’s 175th Anniversary.
Finally, May is “Get Caught Reading” Month! Connect with the Library on social media by sending photos of people who’ve been caught reading.
Enjoy the holiday weekend!
