On December 15th, the look of our webpage will change. You can preview our new site right now at larchmontlibrary.info. The primary purpose of the redesign is to make our webpage work better on phones and other mobile devices. We encourage you to poke around and get a feel for the new page. Please keep in mind that this is a work in progress. As for now, we ask that you please continue to use our current site to make room reservations, sign up for programs, etc. It would be great to hear your feedback and note any problems you might encounter- please email our Head of Reference, Liam Hegarty, at firstname.lastname@example.org with what you find. We’ll have more details soon.

These days many people rely solely on their phones and their cellular networks to do their online business. This creates problems if you have limited data or if you need to write something more complicated than an email or a text. One solution is to come to the Library to use our public internet computers.Now we have another option. Borrow a Chromebook and a mobile hotspot. We have two of each. You can check them out for three weeks. See the Librarian at the Information Desk. While we don’t have a printer to lend you, you can send print jobs to the Library using our Remote and Mobile Printing service.

Both were the subject of the winning essays in our Banned Books Week contest – The Lorax, in the teen category and Ray Bradbury’s classic in the adult. Our panel of four local authors determined which submissions best answered this question- ‘What makes this book so powerful that people want to ban it?’ Each winner received a ‘Books Unite Us. Censorship Divides Us’ mug (filled with candy courtesy of our Teen Librarian, Kim Larsen). Click on Read more to see the winning entries. Read more…
