Click on the above link for ideas on how to easily decorate your bike, wagon, scooter, stroller or whatever for the 4th of July.
Since parades are out this year, the library is sponsoring a bike decorating contest with cash prizes! We will be judging your “vehicle” on July 3rd from 10 am until Noon. All participants will be given a free bicycle horn and a popsicle! We will ask you to ride around town and honk your horn is support of Independence Day and of the past few stressful months that we have all survived. 🙂
Mike is required by his federal employer to stay home during Covid so we had to adjust our hours. I think that after he comes back to work, we will keep Mondays as our long day. We are extremely busy every Monday so that tells us it’s a good day to be open morning until evening!
Here are our newest hours:
Open Mondays 10 am until 6 pm
Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday 1 pm to 5:30 pm
Friday – Closed until Mike is able to come back to work. When he gets back, we will be open on Fridays, 1-5:30.
The only things that are different for us during Covid are that we sanitize often, ask people to stand at least 6 feet apart, the kids’ section is closed but we do have kids’ books on carts that they can check out. Also, none of the libraries that we normally inter-library-loan from are loaning books by mail. So we can’t borrow books from other libraries for you.
After talking to the governor’s office, the Nebraska Library Commission and other area libraries, we have decided to reopen on May 18th, if there are still no Covid cases in Garden County.
Only 6 people will be allowed in the library at one time, they must keep 6 feet away from other people, and all books & DVDs will be quarantined for 3 days after they are returned.
We thank you for your patience and appreciate your understanding of the new rules that may stay in effect for a long time.
