Path to the School


Many thanks to Kyle Waters who spearheaded the effort to make a path between the library and the school. The trail was a project Kyle undertook towards becoming an Eagle Scout.

Critique of "Sparta" - Literary Series Event, Tuesday, July 16th

Sparta: A Compelling Message, A Haunting Story a critique by Alice Gorman

If you want to witness the anonymous deaths and property destruction imposed by the war in Iraq, watch the past 10 years of television news.  If you want to understand the depth of what happened there, what the demoralizing, devastating consequences were to the soldiers who fought there, read Roxana Robinson’s beautifully written and haunting new novel Sparta


PJ Story Time Tomorrow!

Join us on Friday, July 12 for a Bedtime Math story time!  Come in your pajamas and listen to a bedtime story, followed by some fun math problems and games.  Bedtime Math is a nonprofit dedicated to making bedtime math problems as common as the bedtime story.  You can find out more information about them here

And...We Have Internet!

We have internet access now!  It is limited to the main floor, and is strongest near the circulation desk.  By the end of the day on Friday we hope to have it fully installed.  We still seem to be having phone issues, but hopefully it will be solved very soon as well.
