October Children’s Department News

Hi Everyone!
The WLPL is not offering programs for children and their families at this time. We do offer limited days and hours of service and curbside collection of holds.
Current schedule of the days and times the library is open:
Mondays: Closed
Tuesdays: Open noon to 6 p.m. Curbside collection of holds will also be available from 4 to 6 on Tuesdays.
Wednesdays, Thursdays, & Fridays: Open noon to 4 + Curbside collection of holds available from 4 to 6 p.m.
Saturdays: Open 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. + Curbside collection of holds from 4 to 6 p.m.
Sundays: Closed
Craft bags are available again! The theme for the week of October 12 is Halloween. Make a lantern or ghost.
The bags are on a table just outside the entrance to the children’s area. If you only come to the library to collect holds, tell the librarian when you give her your name for your held items, and a staff member will place a craft bag next to your materials.

Reminders:
Patrons should enter the library through the doors on Columbia Street, which is on the south side of the library (the side that faces the garage).
The gates at the garage are now operating, so if you park in the garage, you will need to take a ticket to raise the gate. You will then get one free hour of parking. If you think you might be in the garage for longer than one hour, be sure to have your ticket validated at any staff desk, before you exit the library.


Masks for all patrons age 3 and older are required. If you forget a mask, we have disposable masks at the door.
Visits are limited to 30 minutes.


Check the library’s website before you make a trip to the library. Because of the pandemic, we might need to change hours of service or close the library for a few days for extra cleaning.


We encourage patrons who do not feel comfortable being in the library to place desired materials on hold and collect them from the library during the curbside collection hours. Call the library after you arrive and then collect your materials at the table in the vestibule of the Columbia Street entrance. The materials will already be checked out to you, so there is no need to show your library card.
