From the Fallsburg Library: December 2020

From the Fallsburg Library
by Amanda Letohic and Kelly Wells

December is upon us and what a crazy year 2020 has been! Although this holiday season will undoubtedly be unlike any other, we hope that you all can still find some joy surrounding this time of year. Our thoughts are with each of you and your families as we continue to navigate through this pandemic.
The arrival of December also marks the likely arrival of winter weather. This is just a friendly reminder to make sure to call ahead before heading out to the Library when the weather looks to be iffy. Should we need to delay our start times for curbside and in building appointments, stop them early, or cancel them altogether, we will change our phone message to reflect that. We will also put a post on Facebook and our website indicating any change to our schedule. As a reminder, we are still just operating Monday-Friday as a result of the pandemic and we strongly encourage you to make an appointment ahead of time if you would like to browse our collection or use one of our computers.
If you are not yet comfortable with visiting the Library, that’s okay too. Your library card gives you access to thousands of e-books, e-audiobooks, e-magazines, and e-videos through the OverDrive and/or Libby apps…all without having to leave your home! You also get access to the Rosetta Stone Learning Language Online Software and to Consumer Reports Online Database – perfect for holiday shopping! Contact us today for assistance with accessing any of these fantastic e-resources.
We also will be offering some great take home craft kits this month, including cute little yarn penguins for the kids and a ribbon tree for adults. Be sure to call Miss Amanda at 845-436-6067 ext. 102, or email her at to see about reserving your kit today! And please be sure to pick up your kit(s) if you reserve one – you could be keeping someone else from making a fun craft if you don’t.
No library card? No problem! Just give us a call or send us an email, and we’ll let you know what we need from you to get a card set up. For a Fallsburg Library card you must live within the Fallsburg Central School District – if you do not and you are unsure of what library is your “home” library, give us a call and we can direct you to the right library.
Stay up to date with the latest library updates by following our Facebook page or visiting our website, As always, thank you for continued support and patience. We wouldn’t be able to do what we do without your support. On behalf of the Board and Staff of the Fallsburg Library, we wish you and your families a very happy healthy holiday season and a very happy new year! Be well!
