Library Programs Suspended Indefinitely

In response to Governor Baker’s State of Emergency declaration and due to the rapidly changing situation related to the Novel Coronavirus (“COVID-19”), using an abundance of caution, and taking our cue from CDC and other health professionals, the Grafton Public Library Board of Trustees has decided to suspend all library programs–for all ages–indefinitely, effective Thursday March 12, 2020.

The health of our community is our foremost concern and library staff remains committed to maintaining all other library services. All other library services will continue to be available during normal hours of operation and we will continue to update you as the situation changes.

 

In addition, we are taking the following precautions:

  • Please, if you are sick, stay home. Give us a call and we will work with you to renew materials, extend due dates, and waive fines.
  • Please utilize self-check for library materials. Please ask a staff member for assistance if you need help and we will talk you through it!
  • Please utilize digital materials instead of physical materials: www.graftonlibrary.org/digital.
  • We are working on ways to offer programs to go: individual take-home kits, alternatives to complete the Winter Reading Program, and online programming. More information will be forthcoming.
  • We are reviewing and updating our Minimum Staffing Policy.
  • We are drafting a Pandemic Policy.
  • All work-related travel is suspended until further notice.

We have already taken these steps to reduce spread of all communicable disease:

  • Removed soft toys from Children’s Room (washed in hot water and bleach before storing).
  • Removed sensory table (sanitized before storing).
  • Removed puzzles from Children’s Room.
  • Removed coloring tools from (take home coloring sheets are available).
  • Removed chairs from tables to encourage social distancing — current recommendation is 6 feet.
  • Sanitize hard toys daily.
  • Created an informative post from reputable sources for the public on our  website.
  • Provided free copies of the CDC fact sheet on COVID-19 for the public.
  • Posted CDC handwashing signs throughout the Library.
  • Posted WHO handwashing instructions at each sink.
  • Updated FLU signs (stay home if ILL!) to reflect COVID-19.
  • Placed 2 waste receptacles outside restrooms for paper towels (to encourage people use them to turn off the faucet and open the door).
  • Provided hand sanitizer in multiple locations (note this helps protect against bacteria, not viruses).
  • Provided sanitizing alcohol wipes and are requesting patrons using public computers to sanitize the mouse and keyboard before and after each use
  • Created a staff cleaning protocol for wiping down surfaces and door knobs/handles multiple times a day
  • Requested that Library staff wear gloves during transactions with patrons (handling cash, library cards, library materials, typing on public computers).

We apologize to all our patrons for any inconvenience and hope to reschedule the canceled programs, where possible, in the near future. We will continue to monitor the situation, in regard to the COVID-19 and will keep you informed on this website. Thank you for your understanding. Keep calm, and wash your hands!

Passive Program: DIY Face Masks

This is an at-home activity and opportunity to connect with other crafters and sewers for a good cause! Make a face mask to prevent the spread of germs. Create one for yourself, your family members, or hospitals/medical offices in need! Watch the video tutorial below, then connect with those in need. Visit the GPL DIY Face Mask Event Page to post a photo of what you made.

Instructional Video: https://www.youtube.com/embed/4FB--BOyTiU

Tips:

  • Use a tightly woven fabric (100% cotton - sheets or flannel suggested)
  • Keep in mind face masks will be worn by all genders.

Elastic can be purchased online through Joanne's Fabrics, Michael's or AC Moore. One of the many suggestions, however, is that fabric ties are more comfortable and last longer after frequent laundering than elastic if you want to find a video with directions using those instead.

Pattern with elastics: https://thestitchingscientist.com/2020/03/how-to-sew-a-face-mask.html

Cricut / handcut pattern with ribbon ties: https://jennifermaker.com/face-mask-patterns-cricut/

What to do with the finished mask? Volunteer your time/donate your masks in Boston/New England

Not Just For Young Adults Book Group: Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of Life As We Knew It by Susan Beth Pfeffer, available through OverDrive/Libby or Hoopla in eBook and eAudiobook format.

Description: High school sophomore Miranda's disbelief turns to fear in a split second when an asteroid knocks the moon closer to Earth, like "one marble hits another." The result is catastrophic. How can her family prepare for the future when worldwide tsunamis are wiping out the coasts, earthquakes are rocking the continents, and volcanic ash is blocking out the sun? As August turns dark and wintery in northeastern Pennsylvania, Miranda, her two brothers, and their mother retreat to the unexpected safe haven of their sunroom, where they subsist on stockpiled food and limited water in the warmth of a wood-burning stove. Told in a year's worth of journal entries, this heart-pounding story chronicles Miranda's struggle to hold on to the most important resource of all—hope—in an increasingly desperate and unfamiliar world.

Daytimers Book Gorup: Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of Hag-Seed by Margaret Atwood, available through OverDrive/Libby in eBook and eAudiobook format.

Description: Felix is at the top of his game as artistic director of the Makeshiweg Theatre Festival. Now he's staging aTempest like no other: not only will it boost his reputation, but it will also heal emotional wounds. Or that was the plan. Instead, after an act of unforeseen treachery, Felix is living in exile in a backwoods hovel, haunted by memories of his beloved lost daughter, Miranda. And also brewing revenge, which, after twelve years, arrives in the shape of a theatre course at a nearby prison. Margaret Atwood's novel take on Shakespeare's play of enchantment, retribution, and second chances leads us on an interactive, illusion-ridden journey filled with new surprises and wonders of its own.

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of Murder in the Locked Library by Ellery Adams, available through OverDrive/Libby or Hoopla in eBook and eAudiobook format.

Description: Welcome to Storyton Hall, Virginia, where book lovers travel from near and far to enjoy the singular comforts of the Agatha Christie Tea Room, where they can discuss the merits of their favorite authors no matter how deadly the topic... With her twins, Fitzgerald and Hemingway, back in school, Jane Steward can finally focus on her work again-managing Storyton Hall, and breaking ground on the resort's latest attraction: a luxurious, relaxing spa named in honor of Walt Whitman. But when the earth is dug up to start laying the spa's foundation, something else comes to the surface-a collection of unusual bones and the ragged remnants of a very old book. The attendees of the Rare Book Conference are eager to assist Jane with this unexpected historical mystery-until a visitor meets an untimely end in the Henry James Library. As the questions-and suspects-start stacking up, Jane will have to uncover a killer before more unhappy endings ensue . . .

Reads Well With Others: The Fifth Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauck

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of The Fifth Avenue Story Society by Rachel Hauck, available through Hoopla in eBook and eAudiobook format.

Description: An invitation to join The Fifth Avenue Story Society gives five New York strangers a chance to rewrite their own stories. Executive assistant Lexa is eager for a much-deserved promotion, but her boss is determined to keep her underemployed. Literature professor Jett is dealing with a broken heart, as well as a nagging suspicion his literary idol, Gordon Phipps Roth, might be a fraud. Uber driver Chuck just wants a second chance with his kids. Aging widower Ed is eager to write the true story of his incredible marriage. Coral, queen of the cosmetics industry, has broken her engagement and is on the verge of losing her great grandmother's multimillion-dollar empire. When all five New Yorkers receive an anonymous, mysterious invitation to the Fifth Avenue Story Society, they suspect they're victims of a practical joke. No one knows who sent the invitations or why. No one has heard of the literary society. And no one is prepared to bear their deepest secrets to a roomful of strangers. Yet curiosity and loneliness bring them back week after week to the old library. And it's there they discover the stories of their hearts, and the kind of friendship and love that heals their souls.

Inspirational Book Group: Tai Chi Walking: A Low-Impact Path to Better Health by Robert Chuckrow

Join us on Slack (see instructions below) for an online discussion of Tai Chi Walking: A Low-Impact Path to Better Health by Robert Chuckrow, available through Hoopla in eBook format.

Description: Walking should be one of the most natural things we do. Most of us have been walking almost all of our lives. However, many have learned walking in a haphazard way. Wearing improper shoes, modeling ourselves after others whose walking is inefficient, and wrong ideas about how our body works are all factors that take their toll on us over time. Because walking is natural, it is not hard to improve it to the point where it becomes meditation and improves our health at the same time. For Tai Chi practitioners, walking provides an excellent opportunity to augment, refine, and reinforce Tai Chi principles and bridge the gap between formal practice and everyday life. For non-practitioners, Tai Chi Walking trains us in walking concepts for improving health, balance, peace-of-mind and safety.  If you hurt after a long day on your feet, this book is for you. Learn how to walk properly and naturally. Discover why poor walking posture can damage your health. Understand how proper walking can increase longevity and vitality.
