FEBRUARY 2021

THE THOMAS BEAVER

FREE LIBRARY MONTHLY

Dear Patrons,

For the shortest month of the year, February is sure filled

with many opportunities to celebrate and learn more

about ourselves and others. Not only is it Black History

Month, Kindness Month; it is also Library Lover's Month!

While we can't be together the way we used to be, we are

still here to provide services to help you and your family

read and learn. In fact, multiple Our Community Reads

and Learns challenges are up and running right now. The

Bookworms Book Club and the Talking Circles are meeting

every month via Zoom. We've even added a new group

for people who like to get together and talk about books

and reading- The TBFL Book Chat. Miss Beth is still

doing Storytime, although now she's on YouTube! Please

read through our newsletter for more information about

these activities and events.

While everything seems different, some things have not

changed. We are still here to make sure you can get the

books, videos, and magazines you want and access to the

technology you need. We are currently offering curbside

service and browsing and computer use by appointment

Monday - Friday 10-5 and Saturday 10-2.

“WHEN TROUBLE

STRIKES, HEAD

TO THE LIBRARY.

YOU WILL

EITHER BE ABLE

TO SOLVE THE

PROBLEM, OR

SIMPLY HAVE

SOMETHING TO

READ AS THE

WORLD CRASHES

DOWN AROUND

YOU.”

Storytime with Miss Beth

Miss Beth cannot wait for the day she can once again

bring you Storytime in person! Until then, we have

created a Thomas Beaver Free Library YouTube channel

and Miss Beth has her own playlist!

We will upload a new video each week so Miss Beth can

continue to bring Storytime to you. In order to stay

compliant with publisher permissions, the playlist is

unlisted and can only be accessed through the link

below.
