Please join us for an opening reception and program on Tuesday, July 9, from 6:30 - 8:30 p.m.*
Pegi Deitz Shea, who has won two CT Book Awards for Children's Literature and who teaches creative writing at UCONN and area schools, will discuss her paired poems and photographs of oceanside scenes from Ireland, Jupiter Island, the Everglades, and Connecticut. Attending poets (age 10 and up) will be invited to share their summer-themed poems during an Open Mic session. The exhibit will continue in the Friends Room through the month of July.
*Please note that some newspaper publicity gave an incorrect date for this program.  Tuesday, July 9 is the correct date.

For your convenience, the library now has a charging station for your mobile devices. There are five bays that can be individually locked and unlocked by a code known only by you. You just need to have your power cable with you.  It can also be used as a safe place to keep your laptop if you need to leave the library for a short time.   Ask at the Information Desk for instructions.
Coming to See an Exhibit at the Library? Don't be disappointed!
The Library is glad to provide many exhibit spaces used to display the talents of members of our community.  Most exhibits are here for a full calendar month. 
During the school year in particular, our meeting rooms are also used for gatherings of local organizations (as well as Library programs).  These "one-time events" are often scheduled with very little notice and are not part of the Library's monthly calendar.
If you are coming to see an exhibit in a Library meeting room, please call us at 860-644-1541 to be sure the room will not be in use when you arrive.
