Please don’t return your library books. Stay safe at home. All items are now due April 10, 2020. This date will be extended if needed. So take good care of those books, DVDs and audio disks and bring them back later.
Remember, even if you can’t check out books, you can still keep reading. The New York Times, E-books, audiobooks, and online magazines are all available with your library card.

Social distancing is an important element in stopping the spread of COVID-19. To help mitigate the spread of the coronavirus, the Board of Trustees of the Richards Free Library has made the decision to close the library facility effective immediately. All events and activities are cancelled. Please keep your books until we open. We are a fine-free library so no fines will accrue.
A wealth of information can be found on the library website. We invite library card holders to take advantage of many features available online from Universal Class to Kanopy streaming movies and downloadable ebooks and audiobooks. The staff is available to help you navigate these resources. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
trustees and staff thank you for your patience.
