Federal shutdown: Very serious stuff.
There are still family bills to pay, maybe issues with daycare, a different daily routine in general and probably more than just a little angst in homes across Arlington these days.
Not to pile on but the Library technical staff points out that thousands of federal workers use their work email addresses for their Library accounts.
And with their offices closed and maybe the work smartphone left behind, a lot of folks are probably not receiving emailed Library holds updates, reminders of due dates and notices for overdue items.
Or come in to talk to a staff person. We’re friendly and always ready to listen.
As we’ve said before, a federal government shutdown is never routine but our doors will be open right on time.
