As I send this email to you, the library is closed until further notice. Our book drop is also closed until we reopen. We ask that you please keep items at home until we reopen. All due dates will be extended through the extent of the closure.
For the most up-to-date information about library operations, when we will reopen, and any temporary changes to our services when we reopen, please visit our website: www.castletonpubliclibrary.org.
If you aren't already following us on Facebook, we encourage you to do so -- we are posting links to fun and educational content for children and adults every day while we are closed!
All of us at CPL miss seeing our patrons and look forward to reopening the library when it is prudent to do so. In the meantime, please enjoy the resources and digital collections listed below. If you need any assistance, please don't hesitate to contact us -- email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 518-732-0879.
