New Lights in the Reading Rooms

Thanks to the generosity of the Friends of the Library, we have new lights in the Reading Rooms. The new lights make the room much brighter and more inviting. The lights also highlight the beauty of the ceiling and murals which were difficult to see with the older lights. Thank you Friends!

The Stained Glass Chandeliers are back!

The stained glass chandeliers on the mezzanine have been installed. Thanks to the amazing talents of Scott Ouderkirk, the chandeliers have been cleaned and repaired.

NEW Early Learning Toys

Hello all! Thanks to a generous grant from the North Country Library System, we were able to purchase some much-needed toys for our Children's Room! New toys include a mail box for letter writing, a magnetic board for learning about gears (which take it from me - those little things are addicting to play with!), and an awesome market play set. Our goal is to help library parents engage with their children in a way that supports early reading skills. Stop by and see our new selections soon!
