Happy spring! I’m sure everyone is anxious to move forward from winter toward a spring renewal. The library and branches have reopened again. The stores are restocked and doing well. Online sales is up and running. So there are plenty of books available to read while enjoying the spring and summer weather. We have experienced a year of firsts for the Friends. All of our adult programs have been offered virtually. They all seem to be having great success using Zoom or YouTube. All of our board meetings have been through Zoom. Though I am looking forward to having board meetings in person. I truly miss the personal interactions of face to face meetings.

I hope by late summer, we will be able to get back to some of the things that we did before and do them even better. Enjoy your summer and stay well.
