– Cadott Library –

Lately, the MORE library directors have had conversations how to be better serving our communities. COVID-19 has made it a struggle to let people know when we’re open, how we’re operating and what services we’re providing.

I want to reassure the Cadott community, that the library is open and we are here for you.

That doesn’t come without a few stipulations. We are open our regular hours, Monday through Saturday. We are asking that patrons wear masks in our building and limit their stay to 20 minutes. We are currently only allowing eight patrons in the building at a time.

We offer contactless pick-up by phone call (I am known to also accept a Facebook message or email!). Because of weather, the curbside pick-up has been moved to a bookshelf just inside the door. You can’t miss it! If necessary, we can also arrange local drop-offs, as well.

We are happy to still to provide computer, printing, copying and faxing services. Computer use is limited to a single 30-minute session per day, unless otherwise cleared with library staff. We do have Chromebooks available for extended use and we can set you up on it in various locations around the library for some social distancing. Our WiFi is open and available 24/7. You can access it from outside our building at any time.

When it comes to programing, unfortunately things are a little leaner! Because we err on the side of safety, we continue to not provide in-person events. However, we have had a few online events!

I am still reading a Chapter-a-Day and will start a new book Nov. 9, on Facebook. We have our weekly storytime readings on our FlipGrid page. I will also host NaNoWriMo write-ins Wednesday evenings, via Google Meet, starting Nov. 4.

So, if you haven’t been in for awhile, please rest assured, we are still here and hope to see you soon.

Happy reading!

Library Hours: Monday, Thursday and Friday, noon-5 p.m.; Tuesday and Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Saturday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; Sunday, closed.
