Read On! It’s All Happening!

November 2, 2022

This week, we’re only open on Halloween day, then we’ll be closed until mid-December when we reopen in our normal, newly additioned, newly renovated building! We are beyond excited despite the enormous undertaking before us. 

While we won’t have any face-to-face services during this time, all of our online resources will be available. You can download ebooks and audiobooks via the Libby app or the OK Virtual Library site. You can study for your GED, ACT, SAT or other standardized tests through our Learning Express Library. The Job and Career Accelerator addition to Learning Express can help you build your resume, write cover letters, or even search for jobs on Indeed. If you want to be able to greet us in a new language when we reopen, check out our Mango Languages resource. And don’t forget Tumblebooks for all your picture book and young reader needs! 

We will have phones and computers when we get to the building, but I cannot guarantee we’ll be able to answer calls or emails consistently. Especially not in the first week or so. I’m pretty positive we’ll have voicemail on Day 1, so leave us a message and we’ll try to get you called back. The bulk of our computers have been sitting in storage for eight months and need some serious TLC and software updates before they’re fully operational again. Once we get that done, we’ll be able to email and respond to any social media messages. 

Our time in the Graham Community Building has been more successful than we anticipated. So many of our patrons have visited us in the temporary location! We’re going to miss you all so much while we’re closed. We cannot wait to see everyone and be a fully functioning library again!! 

Our initial reopening will be without much fanfare. We’ll save the party for after the first of the year. Can’t wait!
