Our Hearts Going Out to Connecticut

In our Boscobel Library and in libraries around the country,  many special moments, stories and smiles are shared every day with children of all ages and their families. The news  of last week's shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut, horrified and deeply saddened us. The loss of 26 precious, innocent first graders and their brave teachers is unimaginable and deeply troubling.

 As a way to reach out from our community to theirs, to show our care, offer condolences and honor the memories of their  "beautiful little kids", our library is inviting people to stop by and sign a personal "caring heart" card. Each person's card will be placed in the front windows of our library through the Christmas season. Afterwards, all of the cards and messages the library collects will be mailed together  to the  Newtown community to let them know that Boscobel  stands with them in the aftermath of this terrible tragedy.  Stop by the library today to sign a heart and share your message of care.
