@ Your Library
by Beverly Ewart
Just when you think the news can’t get much more intense, a pandemic breaks out and pandemonium ensues!
You may find that medical masks and toilet paper are in short supply these days, but we have plenty of resources here at CFL to keep you comfy through the mayhem.
Check up on the news or the stock market at one of our public computers or in our stack of newspapers. Check out a couple of books or movies to make a quarantine more bearable (just in case).
Don’t panic, and wash your hands…. We can make it through this together!
