8.25.22 | We’re Not Closing Early This Friday!

Dear Friends,

Each year, I find myself learning more and more about flexibility and patience—especially true during these last three years. I got another chance to practice this week while I was traveling when a few days into my vacation, I found out I had Covid. So my plans to come back and our staff plans to close early on Friday for staff development all had to pivot.

And now I’m writing to you, feeling tired but thankfully mostly okay, to let you know we will postpone our staff development training and will be open our regular hours this Friday, 8/26. I will be away from my desk a little longer than I had planned. Our staff is phenomenal and will not miss a beat, and I will be happy when I return to work! What a wonderful feeling.

I am sad to miss the return of Novel Jazz to Skidompha this Thursday and the Porch Day concert of the Skidompha Strummers. Novel Jazz will perform a free concert in the atrium on Friday, August 26, from 7:00 – 9:30 p.m. The Skidompha Strummers, ukulele ensemble, will perform outside the Skidompha library’s front door from 10 to 11 a.m. on Saturday, August 27, international Play Music on the Porch Day. You’ll find more information for these two wonderful events below.

Our Summer Reading Programs are wrapping up, another school year is right around the corner, and we are busy planning our fall programs. In whatever ways you might be transitioning in the coming weeks, I hope they go smoothly, and I will see you soon at Skidompha.

Be well,

Matthew Graff
