Dear Whitefish Bay Community,

We thank you for your understanding and patience as we continue to navigate the COVID-19 crisis.

We were hoping to return to in-library services in January. Unfortunately, Whitefish Bay is experiencing a significant post-holiday spike in COVID-19 burden in the last week; we are back to the levels we had around Thanksgiving when we returned to curbside and virtual services. We will continue to monitor the numbers, with the goal of returning to in-library services safely when the numbers support doing so.

I welcome your questions and comments at n.reed@wfblibrary.org
