A few notes on our fall 2021 outdoor programming:

  • Masks are required in our tent and on the library lawn for participants over the age of 5. We encourage social distancing between households. 
  • Limited seating will be provided in the tent. Attendees are invited to bring their own blankets or chairs to sit on, and are welcome to sit outside of the tent as well as inside.
  • This program is weather dependent. In the event of light rain we will plan to host; snow, cold temperatures, or other exceptional weather may require us to cancel. Check the library website for cancellation information. 
  • Restroom facilities will be available inside the library building. 

This program is made possible thanks to the Friends of the Jones Library.
