A lot of things changed in 2020, leaving us wondering when things would get back to normal, or even what that means anymore. Although Capital Area District Libraries is changing some of the ways we’re providing services, one thing remains constant — our commitment to making high-quality education and entertainment resources available to our members.
As 2021 begins, the events we have planned are all virtual. Adults can join us from the safety of their homes for role-playing games, book and movie discussion groups, and crafting and trivia programs. These are all free and designed to foster lifelong learning. Children can enjoy story times, escape rooms, coding clubs and more.
Debuting this month is a virtual recipe swap program. With a different theme each month, participants will have a great time as they share recipes; show pictures of their own cookbooks, recipes and finished dishes; and even have a chance to win a mouthwatering cookbook.
Even though our buildings remain closed for the time being, our extensive digital and physical collections are still available for you to borrow. Something many members miss is the ability to come in and browse. To help replace that experience, we’ve introduced a fun service called Grab & Go. Whether you want to check out a new hobby (quilting, armchair traveling, restoring a car) or just need a nice dose of your favorite genre, let us know. We’ll select five titles and put them in a bag for you to pick up curbside. You can also “grab” free take-and-make kits while you’re here, with everything you need to enjoy your own crafting experience at home. Visit us at cadl.org for more information.
