This coming week is National Library Week, which may feel a bit ironic as most libraries are closed this week – and have been for the past few weeks and probably will continue to be – because of COVID19. Which does not mean that you can’t still visit your local library in the virtual space, even if it doesn’t currently have services available in non-virtual spaces. Libraries should be closed right now. There is no such thing as social distancing in a busy library. More likely, people would be cheek-by-jowl, practically on top of each other (occasionally actually on top of each other but that’s a whole other story). There are very few public libraries where people sit in discrete spaces while reading. Usually people are close to each other, occupying all the tables and chairs, gathering for events, and coming to the library staff for help on a regular basis.
But libraries have plenty of ebooks and eaudiobooks, fascinating databases and oodles of virtual services, all online and available to you! Remember that when you can’t get away from where you are, books are a great way to get away, at least inside your head, from where you are.
