Starting in October the Library will now be closed on Sundays. The rest of the operating hours will remain unchanged. And as a reminder, our hours of operation are:

Monday – Thurs 10 AM – 8 PM

Friday – Saturday 12 PM noon – 5 PM

Closed Sunday and Federal Holidays.

And please remember that if you’re using our computers, we shut them down 15 minutes prior to closing.

This change will allow the Library staff to better serve our customers with new programs, more one-on-one attention, and better marketing of all the great sections and selections in our collection.

We appreciate all of our customers and know this change will allow us to refocus on them. We’ve been listening to you and want to offer you not only an excellent Base Library, but to continue to be the best library in the area.

Science Fiction!

versus…

Proper Literature!

If you ask us, both are good, and not just that, but can be extremely good.

So treat yourself and sample from all of the menu, okay? And check more of what is the genius of Tom Gauld, who did the webcomics shared in this post. They are from here, here, here, here, here, and here.

Reading is so delicious!

The last session of our Summer Reading Program was yesterday and he gave our prizes and had a cupcake party.

We just wanted to thank everyone who participated and spent their Mondays this summer with us and say that we had a lot of fun…

And we hope you did too.

The Fire Rises!

Tomorrow (or midnight tonight for some folks) is the day that many people have been eagerly anticipating for a while now: the release of The Dark Knight Rises.

And with the release of the newest and final film in director Christopher Nolan’s trilogy of Batman films, quite a few patrons have come in looking to whet their appetite on all things related to the caped crusader…

So we’re happy to remind you that we have quite a few Batman graphic novels, as well DVDs. Hopefully they’ll help you satisfy your hunger for some of the adventures of Gotham City’s favorite characters.

And if you get a chance, let us know what you think of the new movie.
