Y'all were talking about Little Free Libraries earlier, and today I stopped to get some pictures of the one at the local Episcopal church:




TWO copies of the hit novel The Hunger Games!!

My local county library system is doing curbside pick-up for reserved materials, and has doubled their budget for Hoopla / OverDrive borrowing for at least the next month. But the actual buildings are closed.

I can't really tell because I'm not a librarian, but my local library is doing curbside drop-off / pick-up (or you can always use the return slot on the side of the building) and really pushing their online services like Overdrive and Hoopla, plus doing lots of Facebook Live events like story time for kids. They're also a wifi hotspot for the city so people can sit in the parking lot and use their internet service.
