We are opening early so our valley visitors and patrons (and firefighters!) can come in out of the smoke. Currently we are scheduled to have the adult library doors open from 10:00 am-6:00 pm.
Recent news on the fire is available through a number of sources, including www.inciweb.org–see yesterday’s blog entry for more extensive fire and emergency preparation links.
Just heard from a patron–the Sawtooth National Forest north of North Fork and west of Highway 75 is closing–firefighters need to clear the Baker Creek and nearby drainages of campers, bikers and hikers to establish safety perimeters. Please observe all forest closures, for your safety, and the safety of our hard-working firefighters. Future closures may include the eastern side of Highway 75 above the SNRA station, as evacuation trigger points are reached by the fire.
The Community Library offers free broadband access, free computer access, free library cards to all locals, visitors (and firefighters!)
Good books, good air. Come on by.
