Reopening Update

You can now come into the library by appointment to pick out your own items! Appointments are for 20 minute increments, computer time is allowed longer when necessary. When you make your appointment please let me know if you are needing computer time so we can plan accordingly to maintain social distancing. If you would prefer we will still provide curbside services.

Please be patient with us as items are being checked back in. As due dates were pushed back to accommodate closings some of the files and pathways in the system we use were messed up. Also as items come in we place them in quarantine for 3 days before we handle them to check them in. This means that an item put in the book drop on Friday evening won’t be brought in and placed in quarantine until Tuesday. Three days of quarantine would put check-in at Friday (which would be one week after drop off). If you receive an overdue notice please understand that we do not control the automatic notices and allow a week to ten days before being concerned over any notices you are receiving.

As the number of Covid-19 cases rise in our area we will continue to do everything we can to provide you with the materials you want and need! However, we do have to think about all of our patrons and staff, which includes many who are immune-compromised when decisions are made.

As of now masks are strongly requested, but not required!

Summer Reading 2020

This year Summer Reading is a little different!

Thanks to the generosity of The State Library of Kansas we are trying to implement online resources for those that want/need to stay home and for those that just want to get rid of the paper Bingo logs! We will also have a fun pre-recorded performance available to watch online.

Don’t worry…if you do not have home internet access we will also have some scheduled viewings at the library (more information to come)!

Bingo logs can also be picked up from the library if you are unable to participate online.

If you would like to participate online follow the steps below. After you have joined your age group I will send you the electronic version of the BINGO log. Once you get a Bingo record it in the app. When you complete a Blackout I will send you a new code for your 2nd Bingo (2nd prize)!

For more information/questions please call 620-795-4921.

Day to Day Interactions

While we practice ‘social distancing’ to ‘flatten the curve’ we can turn to social media to keep in contact with friends & family.

During this time I will be posting to Facebook & Instagram more frequently than our webpage. I will be sharing links for eBooks, audio books, educational sites, and anything else that might help us all through this difficult time!

We can be found on both platforms by searching: @oswegolibrary
