COVID Vaccine Information & Resources
After a year of the Covid-19 pandemic, the vaccine is finally here! Getting the vaccine is our best shot at safely returning to normal activities. There is a lot of information and misinformation about the vaccine flying around social media and the Internet; if you’re unsure if something you’ve heard is true and credible, the library can help you figure it out. If you have questions, check out the resources on our website, book a librarian, or give us a call.
