The library is open all summer on an abbreviated schedule:
Please check the library hours web page for current library hours.
Did you know we have a whole browsing area of popular books? It’s a great way to discover books for fun beach reading. Also check out our vast collection of films on DVD! Both areas are located on the 1st FL, East Wing (to the left side as you enter the front door). Come in, cool off and relax!
While you’re here, view our summer reading display located in the glass cases inside the front foyer (display by Lisa Kenyon, Special Programs Librarian).
Some of the titles in the display include:
Me talk pretty one day / David Sedaris
Somewhere off the cost of Maine / Ann Hood
Arthur & George / Julian Barnes
A supposedly fun thing I’ll never do again: essays and arguments / David Foster Wallace
The reader / Bernhard Schlink
Summertime: scenes from provincial life / J.M. Coetzee
Have kids? Go up to the 2nd FL for our Children/Young Adult area where you’ll find fun reads for children of all ages, such as:
My dog Jack is fat / Eve Bunting; illustrated by Michael Rex
I’ve lost my hippopatamus / Jack Prelutsky; illustrations by Jackie Urbanovic
Cecil the pet glacier / Matthea Harvey; illustrated by Giselle Potter
