A Message from the Library Board of Trustees

June 18, 2021

The library is pleased to be open six days a week, with more hours than ever before in its history.  It looks like Summer Learning is off to a grand start, as residents of all ages return to the library in ever increasing numbers.

The library remains at Service Level GREEN and will continue to require properly worn masks (covering nose and mouth) for ages 2 and up inside the library building.  

With the relaxed CDC guidelines, you may question this decision, but the answer is simple.  Many of our patrons, including our community’s children and those who are immunocompromised, are not eligible for vaccination.  While the impact of variants is still an unknown, we are obligated to keep our facility safe for ALL of our visitors, especially as the number of visitors has increased dramatically.  We would rather require masks than restrict the number of people in the facility.

The library is offering many of its summer programs outdoors, where masks may not be required, depending on the type of activity and the needs of our presenters.  

Even though vaccinated, our staff still wear their masks willingly, sometimes for ten-hour days, to be sure they are keeping everyone safe.  They have worked hard to plan a summer filled with the joy of learning for all ages.  We thank you for showing your support by continuing to follow our safety protocols.

As always, your comments and questions are welcome at any time.

Sincerely,
John Stone, Chair
Jaffrey Public Library Board of Trustees
