As I write, we don’t yet know what the groundhog will have to say about how much more winter to expect, but the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention warn that flu season could last another 11-13 weeks and that the disease is especially virulent this year. Along with schools and workplaces, public gathering places like our building can be hubs for flu germs, so we urge you to avoid the Library as well if family members are feeling under the weather.
Did you know that when you can’t come to the Library, the Library can come to you? You can listen and read along to TumbleBooks online selection of illustrated children’s books. More eBooks and downloadable audiobooks for all ages are available from OverDrive – take advantage of downtime to check out Libby, their new user-friendly app for reading/listening on your phone or tablet. Hoopla provides instant access with no waiting lists to streaming music, movies and TV shows as well as audiobooks and eBooks. Chase away cabin fever with their great selection of your favorite comics! There’s lots more, so stop by www.ridgefieldlibrary.org even if you can’t come to 472 Main Street.
