The Jeffersonville Township Public Library Main Branch, 211 East Court Avenue and the Clarksville Branch, 1312 Eastern Blvd., continue to serve the community.
Curbside Delivery is now available anytime the libraries are open. Even as library services continue to reopen, Curbside Delivery remains a popular feature for patrons. Because of this, the library has decided to extend curbside hours to anytime the library is open. The procedures will remain the same. The Jeffersonville location has dedicated two parking spots close to the building as curbside pick-up locations. At the Clarksville Branch patrons may use the Eastern Boulevard circle drive just beyond the book drop.

Beginning researchers are welcome, but a phone, computer, or other device that can access the Internet is required. This presentation is recommended for teen and adult patrons.

I’m building a one shot on Roll 20 and I want you to join me. In order to pull this off, we need to prep together: REGISTER for this event with a valid email address. Same household players will need to register independently to play independently. If you participated in a previous virtual D&D game, you still have to register for this event. FIND some sort of mic. It works with gamer headsets, blue tooth headphones, laptops. Roll 20 is not mobile friendly because many of the controls require a mouse and keyboard, so don’t expect your smartphone to work for this. PROVIDE a completed character sheet in an email sent to firstname.lastname@example.org by Wednesday, July 22. I need it to put your character in the game before we even begin playing. I recommend dndbeyond.com for easy (and free) character building tools. If you participated in a previous virtual D&D event and want to use the same character, just send an email stating that. If you want to use a new character, you must send the new character sheet. Possibly log into roll20.net (its free) and go through some of the tutorials. It is not necessary that you do this but it may make the game experience easier. Remember this format is new to us so the game play may be glitchy. Just be patient and remember we are here to play some D&D. Monday, July 27, 4 to 6 p.m. for grades 6-12
