Writers Reading event ~ June 22nd

​Please join us in the Library’s Learning Studio on Thursday, June 22, at 3:00 for WRITERS READING 5!

  • ​You can read 5-7 minutes of any original work you’ve created: poetry, fiction, or nonfiction, in front of a supportive audience, or,
  • You can be part of that supportive audience and just listen.
This is always a fun event, and you never know who might read and what they are writing about. Do stop by for an hour and listen to some original poetry and prose.

New beginnings for retirees…

The end of the spring semester is often accompanied by many bitter sweet moments. The frenzied pace of last minute papers and final exams yields to the promise and the freedom of summer. There is a sense of completion and new beginnings that is undeniable. This year it is especially true for Learning Resources staff as we come to terms with the retirement of three of our own. Library Director Linda McCann, Administrative Assistant Dolores Smith, and Custodian Elena Cushing will be retiring and setting off to new adventures. Their importance to Learning Resources is reflected not only in their accomplishments, but also in the extent to which we will miss seeing them every day. We thank them for their contributions to Learning Resources. We wish them joy and happiness as they move on to the new opportunities in their lives.

Thank you Student Assistants and Volunteers!

The library honored student assistants and volunteers at a luncheon on May 5th. One of the many wonderful people that help the library operate is longtime volunteer Betty Hughes. We appreciate Betty and all our volunteers for generously giving their time. We are also grateful to the many diligent student assistants that manage both school and library duties with dedication and commitment. The library benefits and relies on the contributions of our volunteers and student assistants. They truly make a difference and we thank them heartily!
