The Edith B. Ford Memorial Library in Ovid is going remote through the end of the year.
Curbside service will begin November 23rd and will run through December 31st.
“We’ve been able to provide use of small meeting rooms the past few months along with in-library browsing. However, we are seeing a rise in COVID-19 cases within Seneca County and library staff want to ensure the health and safety of our community,” Director Shannon O’Connor said. “Our services will be limited to contactless curbside pick-up, scan/copy/fax services, and Chromebook borrowing and use on library grounds.”
That doesn’t mean the library is throwing the towel in on providing resources for the community.
“We are focusing our efforts on providing a variety of fun and educational items to loan – such as Microscope Kits, Mandala Rock Painting Kits, and Escape the Room games. Visit our website, ovidlibrary.org, to find a list of our available Art and Educational Kits along with a list of loanable games,” O’Connor added. ” Also on our website, you can virtually browse our newest book titles or request a book bundle of staff picks. In December we will launch a series of local history talks along with a virtual gingerbread house contest.”
