Dear Pease Public Library Community,
We have missed you! I hope that you have all been well during this challenging and uncertain time. I’m thrilled to announce that the library staff have been allowed to return to the building and that we’ll soon be able to offer touch free curbside services for you. Check back here for the exact details and the dates when this will begin.
What’s curbside service at a library, you ask? It’s great! You can place your book or DVD order either through our online catalog, via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) or by phone (536-2616). We will gather your items (limit of 10 items per card, please) and place them in a bag on a table labeled with your name outside of our door. We will call or email you when the order is ready for you to pick up.
We’ll be here to answer your phone calls again starting on Wednesday, June 3, from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM. After that date, we will be available for phone hours from 10:00 AM to 2:00 PM on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. As always, you can email us anytime at email@example.com.
Lastly, I have to say some words of thanks. Thank you to our dedicated library staff who worked to bring updated online content to our website and to remain in touch with the public while we were away. Next, many thanks to the Pease Public Library Board of Trustees and to the Town of Plymouth Administration for supporting their employees during this unprecedented time. Additionally, I’d like to extend a giant thank you to Fire Chief and Town Health Officer Tom Morrison for his calm and steady guidance in helping us safely return to our library home.
Most importantly, of course, thank you to our wonderful Pease Public Library patrons and friends. We appreciate your ongoing support and patience. We look forward to serving you as we move slowly forward toward our new normal in the weeks and months ahead.
