In order to slow the spread of the coronavirus, we are making the following changes to the schedule of the forums:
- The Heirloom Seed program has been postponed until April 23.
- There will be NO Spring Fever Garden Forums conducted at the City Library on March 26 and April 2.
- All forums will be accessible from your home on the Internet. You will be able to click on the link at the NDSU Spring Fever Garden Forums website (www.ag.ndsu.edu/springfever/ ) and attend the meeting. You can watch the live presentations and communicate with the speaker by typing your questions into the Chat Box.
- Handouts for all presentations will be posted on the Spring Fever website before the presentation. You may download and print the handouts.
Please call the library at 701.652.3921 if you have questions or need assistance.
The City of Carrington has closed all of its facilities to the public, including the library. When staff is at the library, we will be able to assist you by bringing items to you – curbside and delivery service! Call us at 652-3921 if you need help. You can also renew books by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org .
If we’re all work together, we will soon be coronavirus free!
During this unsettled time, we are here for you! We plan to be open during our usual hours and are following established guidelines to ensure we stay healthy and provide a clean, healthy environment for you as well. We will NOT have storytime this week, just as a precaution as the schools are closed as well. However, if you stop in with the kiddos, we will happily read stories, provide coloring pages, etc.
If you are self-quarantining, we would be happy to make arrangements to bring books to you. Of course, we have many online resources for you to enjoy as well. If you need help, feel free to call and we can help you connect to Overdrive, Universal Class, Niche Academy, Mango Languages, and many more!
Also, if you know what books you would like, we will certainly bring them out to you – curbside delivery! Just give us a call 652-3921 or email email@example.com.
We are always in the process of adding new items to our collection, so stop in and check them out!
Newest books include bestsellers American Dirt by Jeanine Cummins and Dear Edward by Ann Napolitano; favorite authors Danielle Steel, Preston and Child, Erica Spindler, Jonathan Kellerman, Karen Kingsbury, Andrew Gross, and Jeffrey Archer; and the 50th book in the In Death series – Golden in Death – by J. D. Robb.
We’ve also add a variety of DVDs and childrens books, including several more in the Fly Guy, Charlie the Ranch Dog, and Bad Kitty series. There are also children’s books that are bestsellers and award winners and we’ve added some of those, such as Grumpy Monkey by Suzanne Lang, Truman by Jean Reidy, Dinosaur Feathers by Dennis Nolan, and A Stone Sat Still by Brendan Wenzel.
We have many small changes to our webpage as we are starting work with a new computer system. We hope it doesn’t cause too many problems!
