The Friends of the Granby Public Library have researched whether donations for the Used Book Sale can begin as normal on June 1. This decision is based upon state and local guidelines related to social distancing, gathering limitations, availability of our normal spaces at the Granby Public Library and Holcomb Farm and, primarily, the safety of our volunteers and donors. The additional need to quarantine and even sanitize boxed items for a period of time adds an additional constraint on what we can do.
We do not believe there is enough information and data available from the experiences of other states that have or will be opening in late May to make an informed decision at this time. As a result, the Friends of Granby Public Library will reevaluate the situation in mid-June and make a decision by June 20 about whether the Used Book Sale will be held.
Please—do not bring any donated items to the library, to Geissler’s, or the YMCA until a decision to hold the sale is announced. Any items that are left will be discarded.
Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.
