Letter from Executive Director Dave Schroeder
When we were ordered to close the Library on March 13, I would not have imagined that it would be nearly three months until we could welcome patrons back into our buildings. During the closure, Library staff have been diligently working toward the reopening. Instead of offering in-person programming, we switched to online programming. Our NKY Accountability Group for job seekers transitioned to Zoom. Chat reference has been taking place for those who needed assistance. In addition, Library staff are certified, so all participated in online training sessions. Staff also created training sessions and made them available to staff. Our drive thru windows have been open since May 18. Most importantly, we have been working toward preparing for your return.
While your next visit to the Library may be a little different than in the past, I can guarantee you will still receive the same level of service and dedication as you have in the past. We can’t wait to see you again on June 8!
