It is that time of year again when I reflect on all the books I have read. I did not reach my goal of 150 books, but I had quite a bit going on this year and refuse to be upset by it. I finished the year with 135 books read, which is not too shabby. As

Every day I am asked if the library is moving and when. We are currently scheduled to move in mid to late spring, but that is subject to change. There are many moving parts and weather to consider. Here is an update about what is happening in the children’s department to get ready. Currently the Head of

Summer Reflection

Hello all, it is Miss Jenn with your children's summer recap. The Universe of Stories theme for our Summer Quest program (formally Summer Reading Club) was a big hit.

I’m so glad you asked that question, Molly Kane (Head of Teen Services and Emerging Technologies) and I just got back from the Pennsylvania Library Association Annual Conference. It was four fun and educational filled days in Harrisburg. We arrived on Sunday and immediately went to lunch where we heard from James Robbins, an author, adventurer, and

Summer is winding down at the library and children are turning their Summer Quest logs in (please turn yours in, I have lots of prizes to still give). Over 800 children registered for the kid's summer reading program. They took walks in our local parks, had dance parties, wrote thank you letters, did kind deeds, and read

The Quest is On!

Jenn, our children's librarian

Summer is here and so is summer reading, but we have changed things quite a bit this year. We no longer have a summer reading club, we now have Summer Quest!
