Do New Year’s Eve the Library Way

2019 is coming for you, Neeson style. It will look for you, it will find you, and it will…well, hopefully not kill you. But it’s gonna getcha. Despite how unnecessarily scary I’ve made the New Year sound, it’s generally a cause for celebration. But how to celebrate? You could get all gussied up and put […]

You’ve Got a Ticket to Read

The following should be read/sung to the tune of “Ticket to Ride” by the Beatles:   My friends, we’ve got a new game And it starts today, yeah I’m so bold to proclaim That you’ll want to play   We call it Ticket to Read We call it Ticket to Read We call it Ticket […]

Show Us How You Stack Up at Our Giant Jenga Tournament

The most gigantic game of Jenga I’ve ever seen was sooo gigantic that puny humans couldn’t play it without the help of heavy machinery. You can check it out here. The library’s giant Jenga set isn’t quite so massive (while that would be way awesome, we don’t have space for it, we don’t have access […]

Adults, Embrace the Summer With Summer Reading-o

  Summer is here. For kids, that means no school and more time for friends, camps, pools, and the buffet of wonders that is the library’s children’s summer reading program (learn all about it here). For adults, it means a different season in which to continue your workaday life…unless you’re a teacher, in which case […]

The Library Makes a Move for Chess

There’s something about a chess board that really classes up a joint. Maybe it’s the elegant black and white color scheme.

Whatever […]

Spin Our Wheel, Not Yours This Summer

When you’re spinning your wheels, you’re said to be taking action and putting in effort while failing to actually get anywhere or accomplish anything. It’s work with no payoff. This summer, I encourage you not to spin your own wheels, but to do something productive and spin the library’s wheels, or rather its singular wheel…of […]

The Calm Before the Storm

It’s quiet in here. Too quiet. Famous, hacktackular last words, I know, but it’s the truth. Today is the first official day of Summer Reading 2014, and the giggle, wee footstep, and general miniature merriment levels are at eerie lows. Of course, I’m probably speaking way too soon and have likely just jinxed myself into […]

Summer Reading: It Has Begun

It has begun. That’s all I need to say at this time of year, and those in library land will instantly know what I’m talking about. For the uninitiated, “it” is Summer Reading, and boy, is it here. With gusto. I’m barely able to break from the madness and cobble together enough stolen seconds to […]
