In-person storytimes at the Library

The following change to library operations was received from the CCC Librarian June 1, 2022.

Dear Valued Library Patron,

Due to a spike in COVID-19 cases in our communities and on the recommendation of the County Health Officer, the return of in-person storytimes and all other in-person programs is delayed until further notice. Though we are saddened and disappointed by the news, this decision is for the health and safety of the library staff and all of you. We will stay in close communication with County Health Services and announce when storytimes and other in-person programs will return as soon as we can.

Video Storytime is available on our YouTube channel theccclib.

For other online storytime opportunities, please visit the event calendar.

Thank you for your continued patience and your support of the Library.

County Librarian

Estimado y Valioso Usuario de la Biblioteca.

Debido a un aumento en los casos de COVID-19 en nuestras comunidades y por recomendación de los Oficiales de Salud del Condado, el regreso de la hora del cuento en persona y todos los demás programas en persona, se retrasa hasta nuevo aviso. Aunque estamos tristes y decepcionados por esta noticia, esta decisión es para la salud y seguridad del personal de la biblioteca y de todos ustedes. Nos mantendremos en comunicación, con los Servicios de Salud del Condado y anunciaremos cuándo regresarán los programas de cuentos y otros programas en forma presencial, tan pronto nos sea posible.

Gracias por su continua paciencia y su apoyo a la Biblioteca.

Alison McKee
Bibliotecaria del Condado.
