Dear Pine River Library Patrons,
Thank you for your continued support and understanding as we continue to navigate these unprecedented times. To support the nation-wide effort to limit the gathering of people, which will hopefully help to flatten the curve of new infections of COVID-19, the Library Board has made the decision to close Pine River Library starting Monday, March 16. All library programs, classes, events and outreach activities, are cancelled indefinitely. All meeting room reservations have been cancelled. Look for an update soon which will further outline the logistics of our closure.
In the coming days, library staff will determine how we can continue to best serve you in these uncertain times. Ideas include recorded storytimes and craft project instructions that we can share virtually. Look to our Facebook page, library website, and email newsletter for updates and other content that we’ll be sharing
While our physical location is closed, as always, WiFi will be available 24/7 in the library parking lot. And as a reminder, we have a wealth of materials available to you digitally. You can check out e-books and e-audiobooks from the Libby app on your tablet or smartphone. And did you know that the library recently added thousands of streaming movies from Kanopy to our resources? We’ve also added access to digital editions of many popular magazines like People, National Geographic, the Consumer Reports Buying Guide, and ESPN through Flipster and RBdigital.
We urge everyone to check with vetted sources of information on the outbreak like the Center for Disease Control, the Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment, and San Juan Basin Public Health for up-to-date information and recommendations.
The Library Board of Trustees will continue to monitor this situation and keep the community apprised should these circumstances change. The health and safety of our staff, patrons, and the Bayfield community is of utmost importance in these uncertain times.
Shelly Walchak, Library Director
