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!

Millionth Circulation!

Every six years, a million people walk through the library doors and a million books go out the doors. Our millionth checkout since July 2010 was Patricia Southcott. She won a gift basket with a Kindle Fire, $100 Amazon Gift card bookmark, courtesy of the Friends group, a Flower Library blanket, tea, cocoa and lots of books.

 

 

Senator Patty Ritchie is a Friend to Libraries, again!

Senator Patty Ritchie secured $2000 for Flower Memorial Library! As she said in the letter, "Libraries play a very important role in our communities and I thank you for the work you do to improve access to books, technology, culture and opportunities for learning in our region."

Just a few months ago, she secured a grant for $100,000 for the new HVAC system at Flower Library in Watertown.

See our Thank You video to Senator Ritchie for the HVAC grant!

Thank you Senator Ritchie!

2016 Battle of the Books Winners

Our library is proud to announce that the winners of our local Battle of the Books 2016 competition are the Nerds! This was a bittersweet victory as this was the last year that the returning champs were eligible to compete.

I'd also like to thank all of our participants and their families--I was blown away not only by how well you knew the books, but with how well you treated one another by being great sports. I walked away this year excited about leading you and already looking forward to the next year. My teams are rock stars!

Changes to WiFi Access

Please note, there will be changes to our WiFi access beginning May 2nd. Please call the main desk with any questions (315)785-7705
