A librarian LOVES being a lifelong learner! I learn something new everyday from the information requests students and teachers bring me.
Stop by and say hello and sign out one of the hundred or so new books we added this year!
Library AT: a quiet spot to catch up or recharge.
NEW! Two lap desks are now available for use in the library. They even have an iPad stand and comfort wrist pads!
To focus on Indian culture for the Vermont Reads program, the library sponsored a Henna Design program for AT. Maria Harris, Director of the Enosburgh Public Library, led us in the craft. The students all chose unique designs...check out the Photo Album! As for me, I enjoyed channeling my "inner Abby"!
Rose-breasted nuthatches along Moose Bog Trail were already tame.
Banned Books Week runs from Sept. 27-Oct 3. Celebrate the freedom to read--and imagine the frightening and lifeless world we would have if we couldn't read/view/listen to what inspires us! There will be a AT READ-IN on Friday, Oct. 2. Book the library during AT all week to openly read books from the banned/challenged booklist. For more information, visit the Banned Books website.
