v e v DIRECTOR’S UPDATE: Welcome back! We have enjoyed seeing visitors at the Library during open hours this spring. As we emerge from winter, we begin slowly returning to the life we remember before 2020. We look forward to summer and the new opportunity warm weather brings to provide library services safely as we continue to navigate this ongoing pandemic. We are pleased to expand program off erings outdoors this summer for all ages. Popular programs, such as children’s Storytime, Knit One, Crochet, Too!, and walking tours of historic locations for adults, will be held outdoors. We will continue to host outdoor exhibits for all ages, and virtual program options will continue when being outdoors is not an option. Summer reading for all ages will return in its virtual format on Beanstack, featuring outdoor activities and new reading goal incentives. Meanwhile, the Library recently hired HBM Architects to assist with capital maintenance projects for the exterior envelope of the Library and Follett House Museum. Phase 1 preparation for this work began in April with an in-depth investigation of current conditions to identify and prioritize the necessary repairs. We are grateful to the Library’s Foundation and its donors this year for their  nancial support of this important project. The exterior restoration is the largest capital undertaking since the renovation project that broke ground twenty years ago in July. Please join us this summer for a walking tour, a summer reading event, or simply enjoy quiet time in the reading garden. Molly Carver Executive Director Winter/Spring 2018 Summer 2021 Volume 29, Issue 2 Volume 26, Issue 1 The Library celebrates its 125th anniversary with a special outdoor exhibit, The History of the Library in Sandusky, honoring the women who established the library for the public and secured necessary funds to build the Carnegie Library we still enjoy today.
