Meeting: Jasper Public Library

The Jasper Public Library Board met Thursday and:

• Discussed plans for reopening to the public. When that happens, the library experience will be much more transactional rather than relational for a while and will include social distancing. The goal is to reopen June 15 with social distancing practices, such as limiting the number of people allowed in the building and encouraging short visits. Discussions about the details of reopening are ongoing.

• Heard an update on construction of the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center. The project is moving along and is on track. Drywall, electrical and plumbing work is ongoing, and sidewalk and curb work is scheduled to begin June 8.
