A message from the board of the Rudolf Steiner Cultural Foundation on behalf of the Rudolf Steiner Library:
In light of the recent announcement by the World Health Organization (WHO) that the corona viral infection has reached the level of a pandemic, the board of the Rudolf Steiner Cultural Foundation on behalf of the Rudolf Steiner Library (RSL) has decided to close, beginning March 18 through April 15. We will monitor the situation as it unfolds and make decisions accordingly. Interlibrary loans (ILL) will also be suspended until further notice.
Please keep books at home and do not use the return boxes until the RSL re-opens. These precautions will keep the staff and RSL members as safe and healthy as possible. Before closing, extra precautions with sanitizing cleaning is taking place. Several points of misinformation have been "going viral" (admittedly an unfortunate metaphor!) and to debunk one: the virus cannot grow in the pages of books.
RSL will notify everyone as needed and to the best of the RSL's ability as the situation unfolds. We hope everyone will follow the dictates of local health authorities. Stay at home if you are not well or showing symptoms. Many thanks for your support of RSL, and please, follow all instructions of the CDC and your health care provider to stay healthy!
