Lakehills Area Library officials want to remind the public that it is open for in-person visits Mondays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. and is providing a full array of services in addition to loaning out books, audio books and movies.
Public use computers are available at the library at 7200 FM 1283 in Lakehills and printing, faxing, scanning and notary services are available.
In addition, the library has hundreds of paperback and hardback books for sale.
Patrons are required to wear a face covering and to follow social distancing rules when in the library.
It they are not comfortable coming inside, they also can arrange to have services provided at the library’s front door.
Patrons also should know that they can download books for free, at home, with their Lakehills Area Library card.
Officials said the library offers two apps that give patrons access to thousands of free books and audio books.
The Libby app allows customers to download books and audio books from the library’s catalog, and the SimplyE app allows them to download thousands of free books available from the Texas State Library.
Anyone encountering any trouble in accessing the apps are asked to contact one of the staff members at the library, and they will make the links that get customers reading ebooks for free.
If the book you want isn’t available, you also can contact the library with suggestions of books that should be purchased, officials said.
The library can be reached at 830-510-2777.
Preschool Story Time has begun at the library and is currently available in a virtual format with takehome components.
The library provides the program virtually through YouTube videos each week with Ms. Dianna reading to the kids.
A new learning craft designed to address preschool learning needs with an emphasis on letters, numbers, reading and writing is included in Story Time activities. A learning craft packet can be picked up each week at the library.
Parents can register for the program at firstname.lastname@example.org or can call the library to sign up.
