After much deliberation we have made the decision to cancel Battle of the Books this year. With the MDHHS Order in place limiting indoor gatherings to two households, this makes hosting Battle in individual homes impossible to do. We feel that this Order will be extended once again after the holidays. Rescheduling is just too difficult under these precarious circumstances. As many of you know it takes many staff hours to orchestrate.
This has been a painful decision as we know how much time and energy you have all put into making this work. We hope you will understand and appreciate our decision and the efforts we have made on our part to try and do Battle this year. As a library, it is our obligation to put the health and safety of our community first.
We wish everyone health and safety this holiday season!
