These are strange days, my friends. So much has changed (and keeps changing) that it can be hard to keep up.
At the library, we’ve been learning new technology to serve our community and moving storytimes and other programs to virtual platforms. We connect with our patrons by phone, email and social media — sometimes you leave chalk-drawn messages for us to find saying how much you miss the library. The fact is, we miss you, too. The buildings might be closed to the public, but we’re still here for you — working hard to make sure that the community has access to resources when they need them the most. Ask a Librarian service is available by phone at (803) 785-2681 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org. You can also give us a call at any of our local branches.
