Braille Collection

Thanks to a generous donation of $2,000 from the Gloversville Lion's Club the Library has been able to establish a braille collection of book for the community.

The collection includes picture books, easy readers, juvenile fiction titles, and teen books, and are located just outside the Children’s Room. Titles can be checked out by children, teens, and adults for a period of four weeks.

This is also a great time to obtain a library card for the NYPL.  Just bring your photo id proving your residency in NYS.  A library card from NYPL will gain you access to their electronic collection - ebooks, downloadable audios, databases. Other exciting NYC attractions: Empire State Building Freedom Towers Statue of Liberty Ellis Island The Highline Central Park Broadway and off-Broadway Wednesday matinees Some of these, as well as others, require reservations well in advance.  Consider that in your planning. Also consider the weather.  The bus will NOT be accessible during the day so plan to carry everything you need for your outing. Lastly, the tours listed here will involve lots of walking.

Gloversville READS! 2015 will be winding down at the end of June just in time for summer programming.

We have had a lot of fun with the Beekman Boys' theme including a trip to the American Hotel, hatching chicken eggs right in the Children's Room, and planting container vegetable gardens.  There is still time to enter the drawing for the basket of Beekman products.  Get your restaurant card punch by at least 8 restaurants on the Beekman tour (Tegeo's, Gianna's, Pizza Joint, The Pub at Pine Brook, NY City Pizza, New York Lunch, Palace Diner, Mohawk Harvest Cooperative Market, Brass Monkey, Scott & Marge's), check out a copy of the Bucolic Plague, or join us for the final program, bean planting for kids.  The drawing will be held next Friday evening.
