Check Us Out at the Dr. Nathan Porter Library

By Kathy Watson
This month’s Greenfield Book Jackets Book Club meets July 8, 10 a.m. in the City Board Room. The pick for the month is “One Second After” by William Forstchen. We welcome anyone who wishes to participate in the book club.
Due to COVID-19 all of our library programs are on hold except for our Book Club which meets in a different building. As soon as the infection numbers start to fall and stay down we will re-open the library a little more. Right now, you are required to wear a mask to enter the library. We will check your temperature, anyone having a temperature of 100 or more will not be allowed to enter the library. We ask you use our hand sanitizer so you will be allowed to pick your own materials for check out. Adults must accompany children who enter the building. Currently, we have four computers open for one-hour use. We are practicing social distancing by only allowing ten people at a time into the library. We continue not to allow social gathering or use of the public restroom at this time. We are sanitizing our books and shelves with a UV wand and using sanitizers on the computers and counters trying to keep it safe in the library. We are still offering curbside service for those who do not wish to enter the library. Just call the library let us know what you want or you can browse by using our online card catalog.
Lifeline Blood Services will be at the library July 23, 11 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
We will not be having our regular Summer Reading Programs this year. We will be having a Back to School/ Summer Bash July 31, 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. We will have the Gamez on Wheelz, laser tag, TN Ag Simulator, Joshua Justice with his reptiles, touch a truck and many more numerous events. Be sure to come to the library and register that morning. We will have goodies bags until they are gone. All names will be put in a drawing for the prizes donated by our sponsors.
Please stop by the library and check out Mr. Les MacDiarmid’s displayed talent on our new outside book bench. He did an awesome job as usual.
Are you registered to vote? Stop by the library and access the online registration. An online application for new voter registration must be submitted at least thirty days before the next election to participate in that election.
