We're Open!

openOn Monday, June 1, Fredricksen Library opened to the public. It’s been heart-warming.

People of all ages have expressed much gratitude that we are again open. They are willing to “mask up,” and to greet staff who are also masked. They stand quietly six feet apart. Those who are part of an “at risk” group, for age or for illness, can also utilize a special hour, just for them – Saturday, noon to 1 pm.

We're Reopening June 1

BonnieCumberland County is being upgraded to “yellow” status tonight at midnight. Fredricksen Library will be able to reopen for regular in-person service on Monday, June 1. Things will look a little different:

• Facial coverings will be required for staff and customers

• All returns will be made to the Book Drops, none will be made inside the library

The BETTER New Normal

Greetings from the inside of the quiet Fredricksen Library. It is different from the hustle and bustle of normal daily service…but… like a seed planted in the rich spring soil, we are putting down roots that will soon bear fruit. These times can be challenging, that’s for sure. We praise the steadfast efforts of healthcare workers, families with too much togetherness, and those who wish they had more togetherness. Every individual’s experience seems to be different, in ways that previously didn’t seem as obvious. We aren’t all experiencing this in the same way.
