It happened. We made it to 2021.
Much to our chagrin, switching out our calendars did not take away COVID-19. But with the vaccine distribution underway, we feel far more positive. We have a fresh coat of paint in the Library, new virtual programming in the works that will continue for as long as we need it to, and we are confident the Library can help us all through a less than ideal start to 2021 as the pandemic continues.
We switched to curbside-only service while painting was in progress, but COVID cases continue to climb. To ensure everyone’s safety, we’ve made the hard decision to stay "curbside-only" for a while longer, and are not open for in-person computer or browsing appointments at this time.
We are also adjusting our curbside pickup process starting Tuesday, January 5th, 2021. (How nice it is to type out that year!). Instead of driving through the parking lot, we ask that you park your car and enter the Library lobby, one person at a time, with masks on.
We continue to follow strict disinfection protocols, but if you are unable or unwilling to enter the lobby, please call us and we can arrange to put your books in a marked bag on a table outside of the front door at a pre-scheduled time.
As always, we want to do the best we can to serve you. Send us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 207-363-2818 to let us know what we can do to help you in 2021!
Happy New Year from all of us at York Public Library!
