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!!!!
