Converse Public Library
Library Update October 7:
We are open to the public from 9am – 4:30pm for material check out, copy and fax service, computer use and printing. Currently we have three laptops available for 30-minute sessions and will be increasing the number of computers and computer time as soon as we can get things set up to accommodate. We know you are needing to apply for many different things and need computers, we’re attempting to get more open for you!! The construction project to help us social distance better and accommodate the computers in a more usable manner has been moving along rapidly! Noise is an issue occasionally, but everyone has been so wonderful during this time. We are still escorting people to the adult section …. down the sidewalk and unlocking another set of doors. This will continue for a while but we are seeing huge results and can see what great things this will do for our library and being able to serve you better. Remember, our curbside pickup service is ALWAYS available to you! A reminder that we have 100 HOTSPOTS for checkout to library members! You can check them out for FREE for a three-week period. Great for if you don’t have internet at all, if you are going on a trip and need internet in the car as well as at your final destination, or if you simply need internet to be able to set up and study or work somewhere wonderful like in a park. ....and keep your eyes here for more news, so much more is coming.....
