Have a Great Day! WE Miss You!
PEOPLE WHO SEW!
When the library reopens, we'll need washable, fabric masks with pockets for our library staff.
Could you help us out?
I have scraps of fabric appropriate for masks and pocket filters, but do not have the elastic. Email me
and let me know if you can make one mask, a few masks, or many masks. Thank you!

CURBSIDE LIBRARY SERVICE
I've been receiving questions about whether or not curbside library service is a possibility for the Ella Johnson Library District. The short answer is no, and here's why:
- Most libraries that have started, or continue, with this service have an existing drive-up window or a covered portico at their front door. We are bound by two busy streets with street parking.
- To protect our staff and our patrons, we would need to purchase personal protective equipment (PPE) for our library staff; this takes away vital equipment from our health care and essential workers.
- Comparing curbside pickup for libraries and restaurants isn't the same thing. Libraries "circulate" our materials increasing everyone's risk of exposure to the Coronavirus.
I hope you all will be patient with us as we observe common sense practices to protect our staff and our patrons during this time.
Shut off times are a thing of the past as we've made our Wi-Fi available 24/7 around our building. Come join our daily Wi-Fi users to enjoy FAST internet service anytime!
