Summer Reading Program Canceled

Painting by Kristine Greenizen

Good Afternoon Patrons and Friends, To say the last few months have been a little bit crazy, wacky, different, would be an understatement. During this time, we have seen changes that affect our daily routine or what we like to call the old normal. Here at the Richards Library, like many other places, we have had to change a lot of things. Unfortunately, our Summer Reading Program is one of them. For this year, we are canceling the program and we are hoping to institute it again next year during the Summer of ’21. The reason we are canceling this year is that we were going to try something different…an on-line summer reading program. Unfortunately, I did NOT get all the info out in time to the parents and children to begin this program. Plus, we were engaged in preparing to reopen the library which entailed new written policies, procedures and purchasing items to make the library and our patrons, safe for them to come back. We apologize for this decision, but for now it is the right thing to do. We WILL be starting the on-line Summer Reading Program again next year and EVERYONE who wants to participate WILL have all the information needed to join. We hope to see you then! Thank you and stay safe and well!!!!

Virtual Summer Programs Start August 17th with Didgeridoo Down Under Performer Rob Thomas

Hello to All! Because of the recent health crisis we can’t have you come to the library for some programs this summer, sooooo, I’ve decided to go out and get some virtual programs for you to enjoy at home. The first of our programs is part of the Didgeridoo Down Under Virtual Tour series and our performer is Rob Thomas. Rob Thomas is a true didgeridoo pioneer in the U.S. He has played and made didges for 20-plus years; has performed throughout the country; has recorded several CDs; and has produced music for numerous films.Like all of our presenters, he performs his own unique version of DDU. Now our performance will begin on Monday, August 17th and run through Sunday, August 23rd. When the time comes, a link will be provided here our web page and on Facebook. For a little taste of what Rob can do, please click the link below to see a bit of his fun and funny performance!
