Doors Closed, Hearts Open

Since this lockdown began, EPFC's Co-op and Board have been meeting to discuss the best way forward during this unprecedented time. We have come to the decision that, given the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, the best thing we can do to serve our community is to keep our doors closed to the public for the rest of 2020. We want to do our part to keep all of you safe, so that means no public events in our space, but also no equipment or library rentals. That, however, doesn’t mean we’re going dormant!
