Likewise for fall, it’s the time of year for the middle school and high school youth to get back in the school grove and start off with some good studying habits. Mark the calendar each Thursday evening from 6:30-8pm to settle down and start to “focus”. If you need a second pair of eyes for a paper or a listening ear for a presentation, the teen librarian will be available for an hour or so. She is also willing to quiz you for upcoming tests if you have your materials ready. Or, just come in to the teen room for studying in general. Come in to focus. We also have laptops available during that time for lending if you bring your library card with you. Give your studying a try in a new location. Bring your friends and mix it up, but just come to settle in to a new great studying routine for the fall.
Continue to prepare for fall by perusing our online calendar for a myriad of children’s events and programs. There are regularly scheduled story times on Mondays, Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays. Mondays are for babies, Tuesdays for toddlers and young preschoolers, Thursdays for preschoolers, and Friday night is for a mixed bag of nuts. The baby lapsit program has a required registration, but most of the others take drop-in availability. Please call the children’s room and talk to Carolyn Birr for details.
For those patrons who plan ahead, please take note that the library will be closed Labor Day weekend from September 3-5. We’ll be open on Friday, September 2nd until 8pm and then we will re-open on September 6th at 10am. Best wishes for a restful long weekend.
