Prepare yourself…winter storms are coming

Posted by sarah on

Rain_0002Yes, yes…we know winter storms have been here for quite some time now, but the rain keeps coming (we’re not complaining).

The City of San Rafael has a great webpage about winter storm preparedness, including how to plan, build an emergency kit, prevent flooding, and effectively sandbag a property.

You may also want to check out the current weather advisories for the Bay Area, regional weather radar showing just how close that storm is to your house, and how to report a power outage in case you have one.

If you’re stuck indoors and still have power, why not use the digital library branch? Our digital branch at srpubliclibrary.org offers tens of thousands of downloadable eBooks and eAudioBooks, animated storybooks for children, online language learning, homework help and job coaching tutors, research resources, and a lot more. Check it out, tuck in you blanket around your lap, and enjoy this fine rainy day!

Child Safety Policy

Posted by sarah on

We here at your San Rafael Public libraries enjoy seeing children here–and we see a lot every day! We are just as concerned about children’s safety as their parents and caregivers are, and in that spirit have just implemented a new Child Safety Policy. This policy outlines how the library provides a safe and welcoming environment for families and children. It specifically addresses access to and use of children’s areas of the libraries, how old children need to be to be on their own in the libraries, expectations of parents and caregivers, and our own role as library staff.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email the Library Director, Sarah Houghton, at sarah.houghton@cityofsanrafael.org.

See you soon!
