The Library Wants its Stuff Back!

I tried this out yesterday and it was a very smooth process.  After going to the catalog on the Library website, I settled on a couple of books I wanted to read. Using the link that Justine mentions here, It was easy to make an appointment to drop off the books I have been hoarding since March as well as pick up the books I had chosen! If technology is not your thing, the phone will work well too – especially during the curbside hours when someone is there to answer it. – Lil

Thank you all so much for your patience. We are finally ready to accept returns. We are only accepting returns by appointment. To make an appointment for returns or for picking up more books you can call us during curbside hours at 603-756-9806 or schedule an appointment right online at https://calendly.com/walpoletownlibrary/curbside-pick-up-drop-off
We have a bin on the front porch for you to leave your returns in. Please place them in a plastic bag and then leave them in the bin.
Feel free to email me if you have any questions at jfafara@walpoletownlibrary.org

Clarion Deadline – 6/22/20

With an extra weekend beforehand, I decided to send out my one week’s deadline notice about a day early. Time has rolled by, and it is again time — MONDAY, JUNE 22nd — to submit your articles, announcements, or advertisements you may wish to have in the July CLARION. And, as always, I appreciate early submissions.

Everyone will receive the July issue well before the 4th of July weekend, but with COVID, there will probably be no activities to attend.

So, take heed, and email me your inputs. Most important, stay safe, wear your masks, and maintain social distancing. Behave as though your life depends on it. Yours, RAY
