Workshop members will draft a diagram or map to use at home during the first session. Session II, August 26, 5:30 – 7:00.

Langlois Public Library NEW hours & information

 

News from the Langlois Public Library Board of Directors

We would like to thank all our patrons for their understanding and patience as the library moves forward to improve access and availability of services in a safe and efficient manner.

New library hours are Tuesday through Friday from 2 pm to 6 pm. Facial coverings are required and the number of patrons monitored to ensure social distancing.  Please check back on our information sites (reader board, library web site, Facebook) as we expect to expand the business hours in the near future.

Curbside service does remain available for those who do not wish to enter the library.   An appointment may be made by calling 541 348-2066.   You may order books and DVDs from all libraries in Coos and Curry Counties.  Patrons may download e-books and audiobooks at Web site https://library2go.overdrive.com. Our library personnel are happy to assist with ordering and downloading.
 
The library is once again ordering new books and DVDs. A new feature — coming soon —on langloispubliclibrary.org will be the posting of newly cataloged items. Who knows, you may even find the exact book that you didn’t even know you were looking for!

In other news:   The long standing book club will be restarting in July on the library's outdoor patio with dates and the August book selection  to be determined. We would really appreciate new members.  For more info: contact the library. Several grants have been received to greatly enhance our services and safety including security cameras and plastic shields at the front desk. An upgraded  Wi Fi system extends connectivity to the farthest areas of the parking lot.

Finally,  the library board extends more gratitude than can be expressed to the Friends of the Langlois Public Library for funding the badly-needed replacement of our heat pumps.  

In closing, a thought for your consideration during these “out of the ordinary” times.
