This was so tough. As you know we just opened just 11 days ago! As much as our joy of being open to the public and sharing these awesome women's history books is, our social responsibility has caused us to take stock of the safety of our community.
Today we released this statement to the public...
"Due to the COVID-19 virus, Gal’s Guide Library will be temporarily closed starting March 18. It pains us greatly as our opening date was March 6. We are going to do our small part to not spread the virus and to keep our community safe. Because of the short time we have been open to the public, we are looking for a grand re-opening as soon as the time is right.
During our library closure, we will focus our efforts online and on the page. We will share amazing resources focusing on women’s history including new Gal’s Guide Podcast episodes every Monday. Plus, our founder, Leah Leach, has been approached by a publisher and is working on a book about the importance of women’s history.
During this weird time, we gathered together great ways to support women’s history and interact with us at Gal’s Guide check out galsguide.org for details!"
On a 100% from-the-heart place - if it wasn't for the location we found and the amount of money we raised, this pandemic would have been the end of Gal's Guide. We wouldn't haven't been able to recover financially from a pop-up location only in the month of March. Because of Nickel Plate Arts and because of YOU donating we can weather this storm. We can breathe a little easier and know we have many more months to celebrate women's history, to share our wonderful book collection. Because of you we have the time to rise again, try again. Thank you. You truly are out of this world!
Keep taking care of each other!
Read On, Galactic Glamazon!
