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.
Themes that will guide our summer programming are "Every Hero Has a Story" (children), "Unmasked" (teen), and "Escape the Ordinary" (adult).
Sign up starts June 29, but you can get a preview of the programs by visiting the calendar of events to the right. Some programs do require registration so read carefully.
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.
