“A garden to walk in and immensity to dream in–what more could he ask? A few flowers at his feet and above him the stars.”
―Victor Hugo, Les Miserables
Have you checked out any of our gardening books lately? We’ve got a nice collection! What better way to wait for the snow to finally melt away! Here are just some of our many titles:
Herb drying handbook : includes complete microwave
Tips for the lazy gardener /
A Northeast gardener’s year /
Reich, Lee.Mrs. Greenthumbs : how I turned a boring yard into by Cassandra DanzCarrots love tomatoes : secrets of companion plant by Louise RiotteThe list could keep going, but why don’t you stop by the library and peruse for yourself!
So, I’ve been posting lots of new books and audiobooks that we’ve been adding to the library lately. Well, now I’d like to introduce some fun children’s books that I’m adding to our collection. These were a favorite with my children and I was surprised we didn’t have any of these in our collection before. I needed to remedy that! Mo Willems writes wonderful, silly stories about a pigeon who doesn’t always like being told what he can and cannot do. I highly recommend these simple, fun books for your children. Here are the ones I’ve just added to our shelves:
Keep watching, we’ve got lots of new books and audio books coming in. Here’s a peek at today’s additions:

Have you ever considered becoming a volunteer at the library?
We have a few openings right now to work along side the Library Director
- Tuesday nights from 4-6pm during the winter months (until about May, but that can be flexible).
- Saturday mornings from 9-11am or 11-1pm
- In January we will have an opening for every other Tuesday night from 6-8pm.
We are looking for anyone who would be willing to do whatever is needed. Because we’re a small library and mostly volunteer-staffed, the job description covers everything from checking books in and out, shelving books, cleaning, etc. This is a great opportunity to meet others in the community and find out about great books and authors.
We’re also interested in having a list of substitute volunteers we can call on when a “regular” volunteer can’t come in (we keep a schedule handy, so we know when people will be on vacation or have prior commitments)
Please contact Amy if you are interested. Thank you!!
