Staff members will rotate days in the office to assist clientele.  Some staff are still teleworking, so it is best to call ahead if you plan to meet with a specific person.  If you need to pick things up or have something to drop off, you can also call in advance and we can make arrangements to meet you outside the building, if preferred.   If you need to pick up 4-H project books, please call ahead with the order and make an appointment for pick up. There is also a secure drop-box located outside our main entrance to drop off items when the office is not physically open.

Per OSU guidelines, we can only have one client at a time in the office and guests will be required to wear a mask. If you have any symptoms of illness or have been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for COVID-19, please refrain from coming to the office at this time.
