The Ignacio Community Library is returning to our regular hours in March! We’re so excited to be back to full hours and full staff and looking forward to seeing all of you here in the future.
In March our knitters and our two book clubs will be resuming meetings, and we’re hoping that programs will continue to return throughout the springtime.
We’ve been doing some virtual programs with other local libraries that are available to view through the ICL website and on YouTube. Check out www.ignaciolibrary.org for these. We even have some Story Times created by ICL staff for families to watch at home. Also, for those folks with young children at home, ICL has purchased a subscription to two Scholastic websites that children enjoy. Watch and Learn Library and ScienceFlix are accessible for free through the library’s website.
For those of you not yet venturing into public spaces, ICL offers digital materials. We have streaming videos through Kanopy, e-books and e-audiobooks, magazines and videos through Overdrive. All you need is your library card to use these platforms on the device of your choosing. If you don’t have a library card you can get one through the website without coming into the library.
Another program we’re excited about is our Materials by Mail. This program, free to our patrons, allows delivery and return of library materials through the postal service to individuals who are unable to come to the library in person. A call to our adult services staff will be all you need to get started with this program. Based on your suggestions and interests, Library staff will choose materials to send and will work with you to get the items you are most interested in.
ICL staff continue to provide tech support on an individual basis. This can be help with your computer, various software, or with accessing our digital materials. Appointments can be scheduled by calling the library service desk.
ICL also offers basic business services such as copying, faxing, and notary services.
This is just a basic overview of what your local library offers you. The library has much more than this as we offer educational support, fun family activities, and upcoming programs. We hope you will take a few moments to see the many other types of items and services that are available right down the street by checking out our website, signing up for our newsletter, and following the library on Facebook.
Most of all we so look forward to again serving you in person soon.
