COVID-19 Update for our Donors

Thank you for sticking with us!

Donors like you get us through these hard times.

We want to reach out and say THANK YOU. Here's hoping you are home safe and healthy! We will get through this strange time together as a community.


Here at the library, our doors are closed to the public, and let me say how strange it is to walk through this building without the people we see everyday; the families that come for storytime, the teens that hang out here after school, the folks who come to read the newspaper and exchange books. It seems our mission, to connect, is needed now more than ever! So until this strange time is over and we can open our doors again, here are a few ways we're connecting people with books, resources, and information during this crisis.

Virtual Programs

Big picture
We've taken our programs online so people can watch from home! Our storytimes encourage kids to participate along with the staff in the video doing rhymes, songs, and reading. We are also offering book chats, how-to videos on using our digital services, Tech Tips, and general info sharing to keep our community connected while we all hunker down at home.

Digital Services

We are reminding everyone that there are many ways to use the library from home. Read eBooks and eAudiobooks with the Libby and cloudLibrary apps, access kids and teen eBooks with Tumblebook Library and Tumblebook Cloud, and read magazines on your tablet or phone with Flipster!

Community Volunteer Line

We have set up a phone line for people to call if they need volunteer assistance. We're here to connect people who are safer at home with a volunteer to help them get what they need! To be connected to a volunteer, call us at 519-631-6050 extension 8012.

Take Care and Keep in Touch!

Thank you again for being loyal donors! Your support means we can continue to reach out to our community during these uncertain times. Please keep in touch by contacting us anytime with your comments.


We look forward to sending you more updates soon! Our Donor Newsletter will look a bit different this year but we still have an exciting project coming in 2021 and we can't wait to tell you about it!
