Paw Paw District Library Notes

   “Our doors may be temporarily closed but that doesn’t mean we stopped working. We’re at home creating ways to keep in touch with you during the shutdown. If you can’t check out books, you can check out our new virtual chats, blog pages, and a new Instagram account instead,” urged Paw Paw District Library staff.
   Thursday Night Chats are every Thursday at 7 p.m. For the next chat on April  29, participants may log in and share what they miss, like, or learned during the quarantine. “Whether you’re an essential worker, working from home, furloughed or retired, we’ve scheduled this one after work and dinner,”  noted Donna Dluge, Program Manager.  “Grab a beverage and join an informal virtual gathering with us. Everyone is welcome.
   “If you are the parent/teacher/entertainment coordinator in your home this Zoom chat is for you.” Participants may share with others what they have been doing with their kids during the quarantine; swap ideas, frustrations, and laughs with others in the same boat. This chat is scheduled for Wednesday, April 29 at 3 p.m.
   The third Zoom chat will be for kids. Snack and Chat will be on Thursdays at 3 p.m.  Kick-off chat will be on April 30. Kids are encouraged to grab a snack and chat about something they’ve made, built, or cooked during the quarantine.
   All chats are happening on Zoom.  Participants must register in advance to be sent an invitation. To register e-mail .
