Fever 1793 by Laurie Halse Anderson

Fever 1793, written by Laurie Halse Anderson, describes the events surrounding the yellow fever epidemic. The novel includes several plot twists that successfully convey history and engage readers. This novel takes place during the yellow fever epidemic that ravaged Philadelphia in the summer of 1793. The protagonist of this novel, 14-year-old Mattie Cook, learns to deal with the hardships brought on by this awful epidemic.

Signs of life!

As the snow begins to melt, we see positive signs of brighter days ahead.  Infection rates in town continue to drop and the COVID Committee of the Board of Trustees continues to monitor virus progress in the community.  We have been meeting regularly to evaluate whether conditions are right for re-opening.  As always, the safety of our patrons and staff is of prime importance. 

We are happy to announce that we will once again open to computer use by appointment on Monday, 3/1.  As before, we ask that you make an appointment for a 45 minute slot at least the day before and we will not take advance appointments beyond 1 week.  Social distancing requirements only allow us to make 2 computers available. 

We look forward to safer conditions as vaccinations proceed and will continue to update you as our re-opening plans progress.
