Library Message:

Dear everyone,
We miss you! We miss seeing you in our locations and at classes and events and in storytime classes and browsing the shelves and using the computers. All of it! We have done a pretty darn good job at pivoting to providing more
extensive digital services and we’ve enjoyed seeing many of you virtually, but it’s not the same and we know that we aren’t reaching everyone online that we were able to serve in-person. As the stay-at-home continues and even after Governor Hogan begins to re-open the state further, many of our high-touch, interactive services will be offered in a modified way to keep staff and customers safe and healthy per state and local recommendations for social distancing.

We’ve been planning for re-opening since we closed our doors and we appreciate your patience as we continue to work through the best way to phase-in public services while reducing risk as much as possible. Our services, when we begin a staged re-opening, will be limited so we deeply appreciate the continued use of our
e-library for those of you who have been successful digital users or even recent, perhaps grudging converts to digital services. And it’s not too late – if you’ve run out of reading material and are willing to learn how to use digital borrowing, we have librarians who are more than willing to walk you through the process. 
Keep holding on to your returns a little longer – we’ll let you know when the book drops will be re-opened and when we will be able to start offering additional, albeit limited, services. In the meantime, thank you for all you are doing to stay safe and sane. Contact us at 410-535-0291 or at GetAnswers@calvertlibrary.info. Thank you for being #InThisTogether with us! 
Be well, 
Carrie Willson
Executive Director
