What’s New for the New Year @ the Library

New names:

  • The Foundation Center Cooperating Collection hosted by the Library is now the Funding Information Network and still offers great resources for grantseekers. 
  •  Books for readers in grades 6-12 now are designated in the catalog and on the spine as “Teen” material, not Young Adult or YA.

New resources:

  •   “Best of” lists for 2013 are now available online and in print.  
  • Recommended reading lists for children on many topics are now also available online.
  • The monthly Nonfiction News is now available online and in print to assist readers of biography, history, memoir and other non-fiction subjects. 

New procedures: 

  •  Print and time management for public access computers is now being done on an honor system until the move to the new library.  
  • Easy Reader series with multiple volumes are now packaged in neat and convenient sets for borrowing.

Back by Popular Demand: 

  •  Drop-in Musical Storytime with Ann for ages 2 and up has returned to Fridays at 11:00 AM. 
  •  The Donofrio Inspiring Girls (and Others) in Science series returns with creative computer programming workshops in February and March;  sign up online.
