MONTHLY NEWSLETTER
April 2020
CLRC has decided to close our physical office space until further notice. During this time, staff will continue to work from home and be accessible via email and voicemail. Presently, all meetings and events scheduled through May 20 have been cancelled or postponed. We hope to be able to reschedule these for later in the year. Again, as the situation evolves, we will make determinations concerning the status of meetings and events beyond these dates, while following recommendations issued by state and federal authorities.

Please join us via Zoom for our "Tuesday at Ten" talks where your colleagues discuss services, concerns, and ideas while the majority of our libraries are closed.

As we struggle to cope with the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, looking back on previous outbreaks can be a source of hope.  Tuberculosis has been a global disease for thousands of years and treatments for the disease have evolved over centuries. Sanitariums were developed in the mid-1800s as places of treatment and respite from the crowds and soot of urban living.  In 1943, a graduate student at Rutgers University discovered antibiotics capable of treating tuberculosis. Sanitariums closed and treatment shifted to antibiotics and vaccinations. While there may be more direct lessons to be learned from our handling of tuberculosis, there is also hope to be found.  By utilizing a range of strategies, we will find our way through our current crisis.
