GREETINGS FROM ALL OF US AT CLYMER LIBRARY.
As our area settles into autumn after all the Columbus Day visitors, we are thinking ahead. Our library has changed with COVID-19. The library has to close for an hour during the middle of the day to disinfect the building and materials. Our materials go through a two-part quarantine and disinfecting process to keep everyone safe.
We have plenty of time for you to come in and look through all our new books, DVDs and audiobooks and all our older favorites. Publishers are finally releasing new titles. We are looking for movies to add to the DVD collection. We have two different ways to get downloadable E-books from Overdrive and Hoopla. Hoopla also offers movies, music, graphic novels and TV shows too. RB digital magazines offers online magazines with over 3,650 titles.
Miss Love has a wonderful blog with amazing offerings for children. She now has “Book Bundles”. You just tell us about your child and their reading likes and she will customize a bag especially for each child. There are over 50 choices to pick from with a choice of a craft or STEM kit. Either call or visit our website to print off the form and return it to the library.
For adults, Miss Diane continues her popular fun packs. We are developing book packs for adults too. Watch for the announcements of new offerings.
To make library life a little sweeter, we have a cinnamon pear jam as well as pumpkin and apple butter for sale at the front desk.
We are now offering Brainfuse for student and adult learners. There is online tutoring from 2:00 pm to 11:00 pm for K – college students. Along with college entrance help, Brainfuse also has ASVAB assistance, help with Microsoft office programs, and language tutoring.
We have appointments for computer time, curbside pickup is still available, just call us from your car when you are at the library or come to the front desk. Staff provides help with reader’s advisory to find your next wonderful title.
Just give us a call at 570-646-0826.
