     The Huron County Community Library is doing its best to make sure our patrons still have access to the various programs, workshops, and events the Library has always offered.  Though we are unable to offer in-person programming, patrons can experience a large variety of programs live through Facebook or GoToMeetings.  Facebook Live programs are also available to watch after the program date.  This type of programming gives everyone a chance to experience the happenings at all four of our library locations and not just only your local library.
