Join the North Dakota State Library and other libraries around the state for the Virtual Summer Reading Kickoff to be held Monday, June 1 through Friday, June 5, from 10:00-2:00 on Facebook.  This year’s theme is “Imagine Your Story,” with lots of fun activities, crafts and story time.

Library Opening with Changes

openlibrarian

The Stanley Public Library will be open to patrons over age 16 beginning Wednesday, May 27!  In alignment with the North Dakota Smart Restart guidelines, appropriate cleaning and disinfecting procedures will be followed.  Library hours will be 12:30 – 5:00 P.M. until further notice.

Patrons are asked to practice social distancing by staying six feet apart, practice good hygiene, stay home if not feeling well and limit contacts and duration of visits while in the library.  Curbside pick-up will still be available for those who don’t wish to come into the library at this time.

A modified collection handling process will ensure all materials are cleaned upon return and will then have a 24-hour hold period before being available to patrons.  Two  computers will be available for quick use only, newspapers and magazines will be unavailable and public restrooms and the meeting room will be closed.

These changes are temporary and were made with everyone’s health and safety in mind.  Please call the library at 628-2223 with any questions.  We’re looking forward to seeing you soon!

 

Stanley Senior Banners

Graduating Stanley High School seniors have banners of their senior photographs hanging on buildings and windows of local businesses.

Ashley Skarsgard got the idea from social media, ordered the banners and asked businesses to sponsor them.  Since most graduation plans are not yet set, this is a great way to acknowledge the seniors.

The banners will be up until graduation so be sure to look for them around town!
