Art @ Home with Miss Beth: Face Mask

We have an important bonus video for Art @ Home with Miss Beth! With this video, Miss Beth goes over how to sew your own cloth face mask.

The CDC recently began recommending that ALL people begin wearing cloth face coverings in public settings where other social distancing measures are difficult to maintain (e.g., grocery stores and pharmacies). This is because studies are showing that a significant portion of individuals with coronavirus lack symptoms (“asymptomatic”) and that even those who eventually develop symptoms (“pre-symptomatic”) can transmit the virus to others before showing symptoms. This means that the virus can spread between people interacting in close proximity—for example, speaking, coughing, or sneezing—even if those people are not exhibiting symptoms.

Please note that the cloth face coverings recommended are not surgical masks or N-95 respirators. Those are critical supplies that must continue to be reserved for healthcare workers and other medical first responders, as recommended by current CDC guidance.

Book Chatter Online

With the library being closed to the public, we are finding ways to bring programming to our patrons through the wonders of the internet!

This Friday, April 3rd, 2020 we will be having a digital Book Chatter discussion. Visit and join the new Facebook Group for Book Chatter, and on Friday be prepared to contribute to the discussion by posting your recommended book(s) from the last month!

Since time is not an issue, we can keep the discussion going as long as we want. We’ll be posting a prompt to start discussions around noon on Friday, but you can start talking about your book whenever you would like!
