New Year, New Resolutions@ Your Library

Welcome to 2012, a brand New Year that promises to be filled with creative changes at your library.

 Off the bat we have our new, community based  strategic plan, "Envision the Future: Planning for Results 2012-2015" in place.  The plan gives us a powerful tool to for bringing our community the best services and programming possible  to meet your information, educational and entertainment needs, and to introduce you to the rich and continuously growing free online content NOW AVAILABLE at your library,  including Overdrive  e-books, music and movies  downloads, MANGO, the online language learning center, and NOVELIST to help you or your children find your next great reads.

You'll be hearing a lot more about the Strategic Plan and a copy will soon be available for download from this web page. One outcome of the planning process was a mandate to enhance library services in support of Early Childhood Literacy. As one of our first steps, we are proud to introduce children and families to the AWE Early Literacy Station, brand new and waiting now in our Children's Library to take your child on an early learning adventure.

The touchscreen station is self-contained and is set up to provide pre-k through 5th grade children with intuitive, grade-leveled interactive learning experiences in science, math, languages, geography, the arts and problem solving skills. AWE makes learning fun! Parents and small children can enjoy the station together, and kids age 8 or older may go exploring safely on their own, without the worries associated with Internet-based sites. Stop by for an AWEsome experience today!

Movie Nights at your library begin in February! Join us in the downstairs clubroom for popcorn and movies ranging from classic favorites to new releases based on bestselling books like The Help and Sarah's Key. The library will be offering both a movie series for adults, and  family series of child-friendly movies. Dates and times will be posted here and at the library later this month.
