Back to School Resources
Cass District Library aims to provide excellent library service and to work to keep our community safe during these unprecedented times. We want to share how the library will serve you and your family as we enter the 2020-2021 school year.
Guidelines and precautions, which meet or exceed health department guidelines, have been put into place for everyone’s safety. The Library is also following a phased reopening plan in order to safely serve our community. As such, we regret that our locations cannot be used after school for extended periods.
- Building occupancy is limited to 25% of regular capacity.
- We ask patrons to keep their visits to 30 minutes or less to find books, pick up holds, make copies, and receive reference assistance.
- There are no tables, chairs or study areas available for use.
- Computer sessions are limited to 30 minutes per patron per day.
- In-person tutoring, collaboration, group project work, hanging-out, and socializing are not permitted.
We’re happy to share that there are still many library services available.
- Educational Resources
- Michigan eLibrary (MeL)
The library continues to offer a wide variety of physical resources to meet the needs of our community for education and entertainment. You can also request items from other libraries through MeL.
- We have digital editions of books, audiobooks, music, movies and graphic novels.
- World Book Kids
- Creativebug has thousands of award-winning art and craft video classes taught by recognized design experts and artists.
We will continue our virtual programs, including story time and craft videos. We’ll offer more Take and Make craft kits, as well as activity packs that coincide with virtual story time.
