Letter from the Randolph Public Library Trustees

 

Dear Randolph Library Friends and Randolph Town Citizens and Neighbors:

The Library remains closed due to the Town and State responses to the Covid-19 pandemic. We are working on plans for reopening in a manner which protects the health, safety, and wellbeing of our community and our librarian. We are monitoring communications from the Town Selectmen, the Town Health Officer, Governor Sununu, and the Reopening NH Libraries Task Force, and we anticipate additional guidance on May 31st, based on information in the State’s active Executive Order.

While our Library has been physically closed, our dedicated librarian Yvonne Jenkins has offered curbside service which she plans to continue. Also, she has been updating our website randolphnhpubliclibrary.org, cataloging and updating the collection, and planning to offer virtual programming. She encourages everyone to visit our website for online access to eBooks, audiobooks, and magazines. Here are some of the projects she has been working on:

  • the Kids Summer Reading Program with an online tracking program
  • an innovative solution to replacing the Annual Summer Book Sale
  • additional outdoor seating in the garden and easy access to wi-fi

 You may keep up to date with our latest news and online offerings by visiting our website and following us on Facebook and Instagram.

If you have questions or need assistance with curbside service or digital materials, please contact the Library by e-mail at randolphnhlibrary@gmail.com

We hope you are safe and well during this difficult time.

Our best regards,

 

Randolph Public Library Board of Trustees, May 26, 2020
