The Blanding, like other public libraries in the state, is still closed right now due to the corona virus epidemic. Blanding Director Whitney Pape says, “The library staff and the Rehoboth Antiquarian Society, the library’s parent organization, are making plans for the library’s re-opening, when it is advisable to do so. We’re working on getting supplies for then. We miss seeing our Rehoboth friends and want to make coming to the library in the future as safe as possible. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we all pull together as a community to get through this difficult time.”
