School is out, and new books are in!
The Library is working hard to make summer reading books available to students. In addition to the print versions, many of the titles are available in digital format. The Library’s Summer Reading Program for all ages (including adults) started on June 16 and will continue through Friday, August 14. For details, visit eastonlibrary.org.
New books, audiobooks, and DVDs are arriving again, after being suspended due to the COVID-19 shutdown. To keep up on new arrivals, you can sign up for Wowbrary, accessed through the Digital Library page of the website.
Curbside pickup service, which has been in effect since May 20, is now open to out-of-town residents, as well as Easton residents. “Many patrons have taken advantage of the service and things are going very smoothly,” said Lynn Zaffino, Library Director.
The Library plans to open to the public on July 6, barring any unforeseen complications. For this next phase of reopening, there will be many restrictions in place, including limiting the number of people and time spent in the Library, and no access to computers or bathrooms. Masks will be required, and the Library will have traffic flow patterns and social distancing protocols in place.
The Library staff is eagerly anticipating opening its doors and interacting with its valued patrons in person again.
Finally, the Library is thrilled to announce that it has received a $100 donation from Tara Sanft Khan, to purchase books about inclusion and books by authors from traditionally underrepresented groups. Thanks so much, Tara and family!
