Adair Public Library making plans for reopening
By Lee Ann Jessee, Director
The Adair County Public Library has been closed to the public since March 18th and closed curbside services March 27th, 2020.
All staff have been working from home on various projects and taking continuing education classes while the library has been virtually providing online resources for patrons.
It has been very hard for us not to be serving our community face to face, especially in these difficult times.
We miss our lap sit and story hour kids very much.
We miss hearing about our patron's kids and grandkids and the great books they just returned.
Our genealogy group is very sad because this is the time of year when out of state researchers drop in and stay for a couple of days.
Our bookmobile librarian is missing her patrons and can't wait to be back on the road again.
We know we could have been helping everyone staying at home with new recipes to try in their kitchens and landscape ideas for their yards.
And we all know the comfort of curling up with a great book and escaping for just a little while.
One day soon, we will be able to open back up to our community. It may not look or feel the same for a period of time but we will all adjust.
We have been working on re-opening plans since the week we closed. We knew we wanted to be ready when it was safe again to start face to face services.
We are taking inventory of cleaning supplies, wipes, sprays and paper products.
Cloth masks have been purchased for each staff member and we are looking for a non-contact digital thermometer so we can monitor staff temps.
Sneeze guards have also been purchased so that when we do finally open to limited public, there will be some protection. These guards will be around the circulation counter and the public computers
We will announce our plans as soon as we have clearance from the Governor's Office and local officials.
We are fairly certain that we will open the same way as we closed, with curb side service.
Please check out our Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and website (adaircountypubliclibrary.com) for more information.
You can also gain access to ebooks and other online resources on the library website. Go to our website and click on 'Free Resources" tab to see all that is available.
If you need a library card to access any services, please email us at email@example.com and we will issue you a library card.
We will also alert all news medias with our re-open date.
We will soon have a big announcement about this year's summer reading program so stay tuned!
Until then, stay safe, stay healthy at home and read on!
