Brian Hart

Greetings Forsyth County,

While 2020 kept many of us sheltered in silos, 2021 has, thus far, been a time for renewal and reconnecting with the pastimes and people that bring us peace and joy. This summer, as the world continues to reopen, our goal is to help you keep your momentum going by providing enriching opportunities for you to venture outside – of your homes and comfort zones.

Over the past several months, our incredibly talented and devoted staff have been planning programs and refreshing our collections to help make sure that your summer is filled with good reads to discover and new opportunities for you to explore, learn and connect with others.

To help foster exploration and connections, we are happy to be able to utilize the lawns and outdoor courtyards at many of our locations to safely resume offering some of our programs in-person. If you choose to attend any of these outdoor offerings, we ask that you practice social distancing and consider wearing masks when distancing is difficult.

While we will still have an excellent array of conveniently accessible virtual programs, we hope that you will find these outdoor experiences inviting and refreshing. Though you may find some of our programs listed in the current issue of Intersections, to view a complete listing of our summer programs please visit visit our Summer Reading Tales & Tails webpage.

Lastly, as it is the mission of the Forsyth County Public Library to lead in lifelong learning through community engagement, innovative programs and inclusion, my hope is that you always feel welcomed at FCPL. You are welcome to browse the collections, welcome to seek and receive assistance, welcome to ask questions and have them professionally answered, welcome to offer suggestions and have them used to help shape future services, welcome to enter, welcome to be engaged or welcome to just be.

With appreciation and anticipation of a splendid summer.
