Summer is here (unofficially for now...but it's coming) and the state is slowly working towards reopening. As of publication of this article (05/28/20) CADL says they are looking at late June for a launch date to reopen some services.

The Governor extended the Stay Home, Stay Safe Executive Order until the end of the day on Friday, June 12. So, our  launch date for Level 1 branch service has changed to late June. (CADL)

While we're waiting for that to happen, we wanted to let you know there are still some great programs that will be taking place for you and the kiddos from the library.
