Library Curbside Pickup
The Wellfleet Public Library is beginning to open up again, starting with curbside pickup for books. Readers can call ahead to check out a book, and then pick it up outside. The library will have a maximum of two staff members in the building at one time to comply with social distancing. Library Director Jennifer Wertkin asks readers to be patient in the early stages of the pickup service. Each book returned will have to be “quarantined” before it is loaned to someone else, so there may be waiting lists for popular books.
On Friday, June 5, at 11 a.m., the recreation dept. along with the fire dept. is conducting a parade through town to celebrate Wellfleet high schoolers graduating this year, said Becky Rosenberg, the recreation director. The parade will begin at the center of town and proceed down Holbrook Avenue. Each graduating student will be given a place to stand along the route.
Community Preservation Grants
The Wellfleet Community Preservation Committee is accepting grant applications for projects that benefit housing assistance or employment opportunities to help Wellfleet locals during the Covid-19 pandemic. All projects must fall within the criteria for CPC funds, that is, they must somehow relate to housing, historic preservation, open space, or recreation. Applications approved by the CPC will be listed as articles at the upcoming town meeting on October 5. Funds will be made available after town meeting approval. To apply, visit the CPC website or request an application by email to [email protected]. Applications are due July 15. —Devin Sean Martin
