Weekly Report – January 4-8, 2021
The Library has renewed the Freegal digital music subscription – stream up to three hours of music per day and download up to three songs per week to keep! Visit https://grafton.freegalmusic.com/ to set up a free account.
In other music news, our technical services librarian has been working to make our CD music collection more user friendly, and today staff took the final step of alphabetizing genres. Now, instead of deciphering labels against a chart, the collection has common genres like Opera and Pop-Rock instead of Q or MA.
Star Wars buttons were distributed to Winter Reading Program participants this week. It’s not too late to register, participate, and earn a button in the February distribution round. Go to www.graftonlibrary.org/wrp for more information.
This week we learned the Discovery Museum is offering a free speaker series via Zoom. Check out the 2021 lineup at https://www.discoveryacton.org/education/discovery-museums-speaker-series.

We completed 680 curbside pickups in December! Call 508-839-4649 to place a hold or request a bag of books to delight and surprise you.
We have started working on our Annual report. In 2020, 30 unique volunteers donated 286 hours of service shelving library materials, delivering items to homebound patrons, completing clerical tasks and other activities. We are not currently accepting new volunteers, and have suspended the program with the change in COVID status to red. Thank you to all of our volunteers!
