SRC: StoryWalk, Sometimes I Feel Like a Fox (Orono)

- Comments: 0

[Families]

Orono Branch
Monday, June 13th to Monday, July 4th

In this introduction to the Anishinaabe tradition of totem animals, written and illustrated by Danielle Daniel, young children explain why they identify with different creatures such as a deer, beaver, or moose. Delightful illustrations show the children wearing masks representing their chosen animal, while the few lines of text on each page work as a series of simple poems throughout the book. In a brief author's note, Danielle Daniel explains the importance of totem animals in Anishinaabe culture and how they can also act as animal guides for young children seeking to understand themselves and others.

You can also find the book in our collections to read at home!

Computer Access (Orono)

- Comments: 0

Clarington Public Library is excited to be providing limited computer access as part of Stage 2 re-opening procedures. Please read the following carefully in its entirety before booking a computer access time slot.

Completing this registration process grants you access to one (1) time slot of 45 minutes computer access, set to begin at the selected time in the location listed. Changes to time and location must be requested in advance of the appointment; they are not permitted (i.e. letting in early, allowing to stay late) at the start of or during an appointment. For the safety of our staff and community members, there are various parameters in place that must be adhered to when entering the Library and during your time in the branch.
 

Computer Use Parameters

Bookings

All individuals entering the Library must have a computer booking for that time slot. As Orono Branch is limited to one computer access time slot, if you are members of the same household who wish to access computers simultaneously, please contact staff at 905-623-7322 ext. 2712 for assistance. This helps us ensure we are adhering to capacity limitations as per Provincial guidelines.

Children

Independent computer access is permitted for members aged ten (10) and over. Any members under the age of ten (10) must be accompanied by a competent caregiver as outlined in the Library's Unattended Children policy.

Health Screening

All members accessing the Library branch will undergo a health screening before entering. Any indication that a member is experiencing symptoms listed on the screening will result in being denied entry. The health screening will be conducted via paper survey, using the same indicators as Ontario's self-assessment. As per the direction of Public Health, this information is being collected for the purposes of contact tracing, and it will be destroyed after a period of 6 months from the date the assessment was completed.

Face Masks

As per Durham Health recommendations, face coverings (i.e. non-medical masks) must be worn at all times. Members are also asked to adhere to physical distancing guidelines, remaining 2 meters / 6 feet away from others when possible, and following posted signs, floor markings, and the direction of staff.

Washrooms

Washrooms are not available to members of the public during computer access appointments.

Additional Services

Children's Early Literacy Computers, Courtice Branch Studio, and scanning services are not available as part of computer access at this time. Printing services are available for free with a 10-page maximum.

Appointment Length

Appointments are held to 45 minutes in duration; all Library computers will automatically shut down at the end of appointments. Members with work to save should be sure to save to an external device such as a USB stick, or via email, often during their booking.

Appointments cannot be extended.

Use of Library Computers

Members can access Library computers using their Library card number or a provided one-time use guest pass. Content access continues to be guided by the Library's Internet Access policy.

Other Areas of the Library

As per Provincial directives, all shelves, lounge and study areas, and meeting rooms will remain closed to the public.

Personal Computers / Devices

Members are permitted to bring their own devices for computer access in branch, but they will be limited to working at designated areas and require a computer access booking for entry.

Food & Beverages

Food is not permitted in the Library during computer access bookings. Beverages are permitted in sealable containers.

Additional Items

Members are responsible for bringing any additional items they may require during their booking; shared items such as pencils, paper, or cables will not be provided.

Cleaning & Disinfecting

All computers and peripherals, workstations, chairs, and other contact surfaces will be disinfected between time slots.
