With the Governor’s recommendations and restrictions currently being implemented by libraries around the state, we are canceling all of our in-person meetings through June 2021. We have shifted to once per month online Zoom meetings for our entire region in the meantime. We will continue to monitor the situation and will post updates accordingly.


Please don’t hesitate to send us an email anytime at We send our sincerest hopes that everyone is staying healthy and safe, and thank you for your understanding.


All the best,
