Stepha- nie Land worked for years as a maid, pulling long hours while struggling as a single mom to keep a roof over her daughter's head. In Maid, she reveals the dark truth of what it takes to survive and thrive in today's inequitable society.” Common Readers StoryWalk! After School Covid-19 Library Guidelines In addition to the guidelines set forth by Ohio Gov. Mike DeWine and the Ohio Library Council of masking while in the building and maintaining a six- foot distance, the library will be limiting the number of students in the building to those who are studying, doing homework, or checking out materials. Unfortunately, students will not be able to stay in the library to socialize with friends or play games at this time. Socially distanced tables and comput- ers will be made available in the pub- lic areas for students to complete homework. If necessary, the 30-minute time limit will be enforced in order to comply with the governor’s mandate in regards to capacity and social dis- tancing. Tutors should contact the library to in- quire if space is available for tutoring. Tutors can also contact Director Kath- leen Whitt to further discuss space and availability. Thank you for your support and understanding. Share your views and some lively conversation with the Common Readers Book Club. Join the discussion on the third Tuesday of each month at 6:30 p.m. at Stepping Stones Park pavilion. Stop by the front desk and request your copy of this month’s title Maid: Hard Work, Low Pay, and a Mother’s Will to Survive by Stephanie Land. Are you looking for an innovative way to encourage your child to read and enjoy the outdoors at the same time? StoryWalk is fun for children and adults! Created by Anne Ferguson of Mont- pelier, VT, StoryWalk is a book that has been taken apart and present- ed page by page on a trail, bike path or in in store windows to promote reading and exercise. Youth Services Coordinator Jill Stansbery has brought StoryWalk to uptown Upper Sandusky with the inaugural book “Whole World” by Christopher Corr and Fred Penner. Miss Jill says she selected this book because, “I pictured families walking down the street singing the song as they see the pages of all the beauti- ful people, animals and plants that are in our world.” Jill will continue the StoryWalk through September with “A Big Guy Took My Ball!” by Mo Williams. “All the kids know the ele- phant and piggie books!” says Jill, “And I like books that show compassion.” The StoryWalk begins at the library and continues at ten uptown businesses who have generously allowed USCL to post pages for StoryWalk in their front windows. Storywalk unites in one experience some of the best things that make life such a joy to live: family, community, and, of course, reading! Give Us a Call!
