One thing that we always strive for as library professionals is providing people looking for information on a topic with resources that present the facts in an unbiased manner. It seems that it gets harder to find resources that present just the facts without being weighed down in the presenters opinion.
A team team of researchers and students at Brown, MIT, Harvard, Mass General as well as other highly regarded institutions have put together a resource to help provide you with the information you need from unbiased resources.
I hope you will find COVID-EXPLAINED useful and a place to turn to when trying to verify that story your friend or relative just shared on Facebook or when you look to share information with your social networks.
As you probably already know, the Governor has extended the Stay Home orders through June 4th for Delaware County. This means that the library will remain closed for all in-person services through this time.
Delaware County Libraries have made the following adjustments to holds and due dates:
Library staff are busy planning for returning to the library to offer services as soon as we are given the green light to do so. We are working hard to establish procedures and practices that will be safe for staff and the community. We anticipate that library programming will continue to be offered virtually through the summer.
We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the library building when it's safe to do so. The library continues to serve the community through our virtual programs and our 24/7 Digital Library.
