Based upon the statement released by the Whatcom County Health Department on Tuesday, March 10, Village Books is following the recommended guidelines laid out by that department, regarding events and gatherings.
It is our intent to postpone or cancel all forthcoming events listed on our event calendar through the date of Tuesday, March 31. Leadership at Village Books will meet at the beginning of each week and determine whether or not to postpone more events, based upon developments as they arise. Circumstances around the covid-19 virus are ever-evolving and we at Village Books and Paper Dreams will do our utmost to stay abreast of the situation.
Village Books and Paper Dreams is committed to the health and safety of everyone who attends our events. With this in mind, we are closely monitoring both the global and local status of the covid-19 outbreak.
We want to reassure our community—partners, presenters, and audiences—that we’re both recommitting to our standard practices and introducing new precautions, such as extra cleanings of high traffic areas and objects that are regularly touched (including door knobs, stair railings, handles, elevator keypads, etc).
If authorities issue advice to stay home or avoid non-essential activities, and/or suggest the organization should close temporarily, we will prioritize the health and safety of our audiences, customers, and our employees.
