When there is inclement weather, the library will close early. This is for the safety of our staff as well as our patrons. Apprently, this does not sit well with some of our “everyday” patrons. A recent encounter with one of them went a little like this…
Patron: Are you closing early tonight like you did last week?
Me: I’m not sure. It depends on when the snow starts.
Patron: … (stands silently then lets out a “mm” and walks away)
Well… sorry that we want to keep people safe by sending them home early instead of when the snow is already piling up and the roads are slick.
