Library water bottle filling stations are here

Posted by lclemons on

New water bottle filling stations are available inside the library just in time for the hot weather! Stations are installed at both locations.

Benefits to the stations include:

  • Refreshingly cool and consistent water temperature
  • Health benefits of drinking water
  • Improved water filtering reducing lead and other contaminants
  • Improved water taste
  • Hands-free operation
  • Reduction of plastic bottle waste, a ticker keeps track of 20 oz water bottles saved from waste
  • Antimicrobial protection inhibits the growth of mold and mildew

 

The stations include locked safety covers over the drinking fountain to prevent the spread of viral pathogens.

Library begins to offer in-person programming

Posted by lclemons on

After over a year of virtual programming, the Crown Point Community Library is beginning to introduce in-person programming (at the Crown Point location), choosing only a few programs to transition into early summer.

Currently, the library’s monthly book club, ongoing craft, and social game groups will begin meeting in person, at the Crown Point location. Those who choose to attend the programs are required to wear a mask and observe the social distance.  The majority of children’s programming will remain virtual. Library staff is finalizing the Summer Reading schedule of events, which will include outdoor storytime programs, drop-in scavenger hunts, LEGO challenges, and more throughout June and July. All of the library’s curbside activities, for all ages, and services including curbside pick up, and curbside computing, will continue.

In addition, the Crown Point location will resume the public use of our meeting rooms and individual study rooms are available for regular occupancy.  Meeting rooms will have capacity limits and other restrictions. To reserve a study room call 219.306.4593, for meeting rooms call (219) 663-0270 ext. 226.

The ability to offer in-person programs may change in response to pandemic conditions, for up-to-date information check our events calendar and Facebook page.

 

Members of the Lake County Parks Photo Club have a display of photography work at the Crown Point location throughout the month of May.
