✨ Twinkle twinkle little SMASH! ✨ The creators of the New York Times-bestselling Princess in Black series—Shannon Hale, Dean Hale, and LeUyen Pham—have created a child-friendly public service announcement about the Coronavirus. Download The Princess in Black and the Case of the Coronavirus now! https://bit.ly/2y7CLzk

In the words of the creators:
“LeUyen, Dean and I are all parents self-isolating at home with our children. The anxiety and distancing is hard enough on our older kids, but we know that younger kids might be having an even harder time. We hoped that it’d help if a familiar book friend like the Princess in Black talked them through it. Even the Princess in Black is staying home! Even Princess Sneezewort had to cancel playdates! LeUyen had the idea of creating a short comic to download and share widely so caregivers could have an extra tool for talking to kids. Our goal is both to help kids understand what’s going on and to help them feel less alone.”

The Earlham Public Library is OPEN to the public as of 5/4/2020. Please respect social distancing so that we may all continue to stay as safe as possible and able to use our community resources together. We have hand sanitizer located at the front of the lobby and at the checkout desk.

We are accepting returns again and are quarantining items for 2 weeks (with the option of cleaning reserves and releasing them to their next patron early) before putting them back into our regular circulation. Due dates have been extended until May 30th for all items checked out since March 15th.
We will not be resuming programming for the foreseeable future and are looking into a more online/grab-and-go friendly Summer Reading Program option.

We'd like to encourage you to check out all of the online resources on our website during this time, such as free language learning software, job interview help, CDL and Driver test prep, college prep (ACT/SAT/etc) testing help, car repair manuals, and of course, audio and ebooks. Call 758-2121 or text 212-5264 to get your library card number for access! We also have Wi-Fi available outside of our building.

Excuse my giant, attention-grabbing photo. This is an underrated G-rated film from 1993 that I thought expressed the sentiment of being open rather well.

Happy National Library Worker Day! Check out what this library is able to do for their community with their makerspace equipment!

The library has been using its 3D printer to print ear savers for our local healthcare workers at Clarinda Regional Health Center , these simple devices help reduce the strain and pressure masks put on one's ears. #makerspace #notouchchallenge #lulzbot #thingiversething:4249113

We have received lots of calls about personal face masks/face coverings. Listed below is some guidance about them.
Your cloth face covering should:

✔️ Reach above the nose, below the chin, and completely cover the mouth and nostrils

✔️ Fit snugly against the sides of the face

✔️ Be made of multiple layers of fabric that you can still breathe through

✔️ Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damaging the material or shape

Many items you may already have in your home can be used to create face coverings. Try creating a cloth face covering using bandanas, ski masks, washable napkins, or dish towels.

We still have meal bags through Earlham Helping Hands Food Share! We just legally have to have the whole building closed to the public, so give us a call or knock hard on the door during the weekdays (10-5) and we'll set a bag out for you. We can also do this with books, movies, etc but we prefer you call for those so we can get them checked out and ready by the time you arrive! Another note: Our Wi-Fi extends to our parking lot and the picnic table in our backyard and we're not turning it off! What else can we do for you while still being closed? Let us know and we'll try to make it work!

UPDATE: (I waited all day to post and just now got clarification. Our entire building needs to be closed to public, so if you need materials, we need to place them outside, under our overhang for you. Please refrain from coming to the door at the same time as we or another person does in order to maintain social distance.)

As many of you know, the governor has decided to officially close libraries. At this point, after talking with our mayor, we will remain closed and we plan to keep offering curbside/home delivery (Call, text, email, etc! We'll get your stuff! (Between the hours of 10AM and 5PM) Please respect social distancing and refrain from contact with staff in person so that we can continue to offer this service for as long as possible! We love helping our community and while the state library system and Iowa Library Association figure out exactly what the governor's statement means for us going forward, we'll keep serving our public from a distance and keep our main library area closed as advised.

Please keep your current materials at home, our dropbox is overflowing and we'd prefer not to add anything back into our collection at the moment. We're only checking things out that were here BEFORE we closed. Nothing is being re-circulated and we will extend everyone's due dates.

Attention Madison County! We need your help! Our home health program, which services the medically needy and elderly in their home, are in need of homemade cloth masks! The masks can be dropped off at the Public Health building during regular business hours. Your talents would be greatly appreciated.
