Important Mask Information

The Whipple Free Library has been re-opened by appointment since late October 2020. Prior to re-opening, the library’s Board of Trustees adopted a COVID-19 pandemic policy that included the requirements to wear a mask and to social distance when in the library.
This policy was adopted before the implementation of a state-wide mask mandate on November 20, 2020.
 
The Whipple Free Library has remained open in this manner for almost six months now, allowing our patrons access to library materials, public computers, printing, copying, faxing and in-person tech help. Both staff and patrons have adapted graciously to the changes in the library which allow the building to be open in a safe and healthy manner.
 
The safety of our staff and our patrons continues to be a priority. Despite the expiration of the state-wide mask mandate today, Friday, April 16, the library’s COVID-19 policy remains in place, including the requirement to wear a mask in the library building. The Board will review this policy, as it has done throughout the pandemic, during its meeting on Tuesday, April 20th. The public is always welcome to attend.

Thank you so much for your continued support, patience and understanding. We hope to see you all soon, and please continue to look for updates here, on the library website, and the library Facebook pages.

New Feature: Seed Library!

We are hoping to start a seed library here at the Whipple Free Library!

  The is a special donation box just inside the lobby doors, so they don't get mixed into the books!  Please don't forget to label and date anything you donate.  Donations can be dropped off at the library lobby during business hours. "Heirloom" seeds preferred!

The idea is that you can "borrow" seeds by taking from the library and then return seeds harvested from what you grow.  To get started we will need some donations of harvested seeds and even some plain seed packets if anyone would like to donate them. 

We will just be collecting donations at the moment and once we have enough to organize we will set up our little system! Thanks in advance!
