Slatington library announcements

The Slatington Public Library has been closed since March, and we are eagerly awaiting our entry into the “yellow” phase of reopening.

Unfortunately, we will not be able to hold our preschool story hour, or our Wonderful World of Wildlife summer reading program. The library has signed up for a virtual summer reading program. Information will be on our website.

We hope to reschedule a local history program on the Slate industry which was to be given by David Altrichter.

We also needed to cancel our Arts Night, which was a combined endeavor with the Woman’s Club of Slatington.

The end date for our ongoing 50/50 raffle has been extended. We are trying to decide the best time to pull the winners. If you have bought tickets, be assured we will have a drawing.

We do have plans in place for patrons to safely use the library once our county enters the yellow phase. Books, magazines and movies will be available for checkout.

There will be no computer use by the public, and no one will be allowed to stay in the library, and masks must be worn.

If you have a library card, you can access the links to the electronic resources on our home page, www.slatingtonlibrary.org. These include e-books and audio books; Novelist; Comics Plus; Zinnio to read magazines; Rosetta Stone to learn a new language, Brainfuse for test prep, e-learning and homework help; and Ancestry and Heritage Quest. If you need to sign up for a library card, email the library at slatlib@ptd.net or slatlib2@ptd.net with your name, address and phone number, and we can assign you one.

The library will be mailing out their community fundraising appeal shortly. In view of the fact that many of our other fundraisers will not take place during the coronavirus pandemic, we ask that you consider a donation. Any amount is greatly appreciated. Please continue to stay safe, we look forward to seeing you in the yellow.
