Partnership to Reopen July 7

Partnership Celebrates Reopening

We want to start by saying “thank you.” The last year has challenged us in ways we never could’ve expected, and we greatly appreciate your understanding, patience, and cooperation as we worked together to make changes to the operations of our Resource Room and Lending Library. 

We are pleased to announce that our office will reopen to members beginning Wednesday, July 7, 2021, at 8 a.m. Although our doors will be open, we will be making the following modifications to ensure the safety of our staff and members while allowing us to begin the creation of our “new normal.” Because of these changes, please take a moment to familiarize yourself with the updates to our policies below so that we can ensure a seamless transition.


Reopening Updates

  • The Resource Room and Lending Library will be open Monday, Wednesday, and Thursday, from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and Tuesday from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
  • We will allow a maximum of eight members in the Resource Room and Lending Library at any given time. There will be a one-hour maximum to ensure members can complete projects. 
  • Our Children’s Play Area will remain closed until further notice. Only children in strollers or carriers will be allowed to accompany their caregiver in the Resource Room or Lending Library. 
  • Upon entering the building, a staff member will conduct a temperature check. You will not be allowed to utilize the Resource Room or Lending Library if your temperature is above 100.4°.
  • All visitors must wear a face covering over their mouth and nose for the entire time they are in the building. 


Reopening to Change Curbside Services

Our curbside services will continue with slight modifications. Curbside will be available for copy/printing, lamination, and bulletin board paper. Members must complete die cuts, bookbinding, and the checkout or return of Lending Library inside, not via curbside service. 


Reopening Questions & Concerns

We understand the return to in-person services will take an adjustment period, and we ask that you work with us as we navigate our reopening. For questions regarding Partnership services, please call 252.758.8885 or email us here.

A Bright Future for Every Child in Our Community
