Summer Reading 2020
"Imagine Your Story"

This year's theme is "Imagine Your Story" and we're imagining you having a great time wherever you are this summer!

From June 1 through July 25, challenge yourself to play, read, and have fun!

Activities:

Each week, we'll post some fun things for you to do on your own or with your family, according to the week's theme. On Mondays, we'll share cool crafts, games, and other activities to interest all ages. On Tuesdays, we'll post ideas for great books (or two, or three!) for you to read. Then, look for our Family Friday posts, when we'll share a project that will involve everyone in some weekend fun. Do as many activities as you like, and share your selfies with us!

Limited Reopening
Phase 4

We are pleased to announce that TFPL will be moving into Phase 4 of our reopening plan and will again be open to our public.  We will have limited hours of service and ask that patrons be brief when utilizing the building.  We regret that services will be limited and ask that our community work with us in keeping everyone safe.  The following are important points in this stage of reopening:

  • Starting June 15th Library Hours open to the public will be Monday-Friday 10:00am - 5:00pm and Saturday 10:00am - 1:00pm

  • Staff will be wearing masks and encourage our users to do so as well  

  • Computer usage will be limited to one-hour time slots per day

  • Program and meeting rooms will continue to be closed

  • Seating will be limited in the library

  • All areas of the library will practice social distancing

  • In the event we have areas of congestion, we will reevaluate the use of that area

 

We would like to thank everyone for their patience during this unprecedented time.  We will continue to reevaluate our situation with guidance from Governor Little and the health of our community.  For additional information please contact the library at 208-733-2964.
