There’s less traffic, plenty of time on your hands, isn’t this the perfect time to teach kids how to drive?
Not so fast. We think you should see Driving-Tests.org first. It’s on our Job Search and Learning Aids page under the Research tab at the top of this and any Adult page. You’ll find the New York State DMV handbooks in English and Spanish for the standard license, commercial, and motorcycles, FAQs, practice tests Read more…
We know you’re all tired of looking at the same sad pile of long-read Library books and over-watched DVDs and are itching to return them. Well that time is now! Starting Thursday, May 28th there will be book bins outside the Library from 9am-12noon Monday through Friday. Please keep a few things in mind:

- All materials will be checked in fine free through July 1, 2020.
- Please maintain social distancing while returning items.
Would you be interested in joining a film discussion about a famous movie that won nine Academy Awards, including best picture? If so, we encourage you to watch “The English Patient” for free on Hoopla and join librarian, Paul Doherty, on Friday May 29th at 10am for a discussion. If watching and chatting about movies is your thing, and you’d like to offer some input for Paul’s next viewing selection, please vote here for the next meeting’s movie on June 26th. Our children’s librarian, Linnea, has been doing her online story times each week since our building closed and for that, we are so grateful- we’re sure some parents would agree!
Many of us are still home and looking for things to do. We are starting to run out of new banana bread recipes to bake and the pile of books we had to read is diminishing. This is where podcasts come in to help shake things up. Podcasts have become quite the phenomenon in recent years as listeners are discovering that there’s a podcast customized for everyone- you can listen to a podcast about your favorite sports team or band or serial killer. The options are endless! We have searched websites and asked staff members at the library for their favorites. Below, you will find a list of podcasts we think might be helpful in getting you through this time spent at home or accompanying you on a daily walk through town. You can listen online or through the podcast app on your phone.
We know that many parents have officially turned into substitute teachers in the ‘Stayhome School District’ and we hope you have been utilizing our online resources to help guide you. Yes, there’s a lot to get you started and out of jams but do you still feel like maybe you need additional help? We’re sure you’ve discovered a few gaps in your education and need clearer answers than what Google can offer. Hint: don’t ask you neighbors for help either. Jim next door thinks a ‘predicate’ is someone with a prior felony conviction, and that a ‘standard deviation’ is a tax credit. If only there was someone who actually knew the answers.
Eagle-eyed patrons may have noticed the recent appearance of a red “Current Situation” link at the top of our webpage, right next to the all-important Catalog and Your Account tab. Use the Current Situation page to find most of the posts we’ve put on our main page since, well, since the Current Situation began. Although we changed our main page to hold six news items instead of four, useful posts were forced off the page to make room for new ones. For example, where are the sewing machines? On April 6, we announced we have a number of sewing machines Read more…
