I am sure we can all agree that what we have been through over the last few months because of COVID-19 has not be pleasant but I will say that some really cool things have resulted from us having to do things differently. Maybe it's dinner at home with your family or outside on a picnic table at your favorite restaurant. Maybe your finding that you revisited a hobby you forgot you enjoyed or maybe you started reading again.

If reading has become a new past time you might want to get a back to the library.  They are great places to get book on a budget. A lot of the libraries in the Hudson Valley have been running special programs during the pandemic. Some local libraries have figured out how to get books and resources to people who needed them during the "pause" in New York and it seems that even though we are heading into phase three libraries are still helping get us what we need and just in time for summer reading.

The Gardiner Library posted this today on their Facebook page. If you are a member there volunteers are ready to get you what you need.

Check with your local library to see what services they are offering. Some libraries are still closed but are making plans to re-open like the Elting Memorial Library in New Paltz.

If you don't know how to find your local library check out this list from Kids Out and About.
