LIbrary Mask Policy

In keeping with our board policy our priority during the COVID-19 pandemic has been and remains focused on the safety of our staff and the community we serve.

Ulster County Community Levels have risen to YELLOW. We strongly recommend wearing masks at indoor programs.

ALWAYS WEAR A MASK IF YOU ARE NOT FEELING WELL, HAVE ANY COVID SYMPTOMS OR HAVE BEEN EXPOSED TO SOMEONE WITH COVID

We will continue to monitor the guidelines and make necessary adjustments as we have throughout this Pandemic. Social distance policy remains in effect for programs.

Virtual Event: Art Adventures for Seniors 55+: Literary Theatre Laura F. Keys as Charlotte Brontë, the Stifled Writer In-Person / Online

Meet Charlotte Brontë, the passionate authoress. Hear the story behind the written words, and learn how she, the middle child of six, survived to share their collected narratives. Visit with Charlotte in 1847, as she reflects on her emotionally-charged experiences as both student and teacher at various boarding schools. Share with her the joy of seeing her deeply personal novel, Jane Eyre, in published form.

THIS IS A VIRTUAL HYBRID EVENT: YOU MAY ATTEND EITHER ONLINE OR IN-PERSON. PLEASE CHOOSE YOUR SELECTION DURING REGISTRATION.
