Take me out to the ball game!! For some people this is the cry of summer and brings back fond memories of going to baseball games with Mom & Dad, Baseball cards were all the rage and kids traded them under shade trees during the hot summer months and then waited anxiously for the next batch to come out. Come and revisit that nostalgic time by checking out the new display at the Mill Pond Lib
Just a reminder that we will be closed this Saturday, May 25th, and Monday, May 27th for the Memorial Day Holdiay! Have a fun and safe weekend!

We are looking for donations of anything that would or could be found in a basket! Think Spring, Holidays, Girls Night, Mothers Day, Birthdays…. the sky is the limit!

The Library has a new display in our case for the month of April. It is a vintage camera collection on loan to us from Kathy Sletten, who owns Hidden Creek Studio in Kingston. The cameras date from the early 1900's all the way thru the 2000's. Kathy will also be giving a class on Tuesday, April 9th, at the library at 6pm on how to get the best picture from your digital camera. Kathy has also written an e-book titled "Roadside Photography" that can be purchased at Barnes & Noble or Amazon. If you'd like to take the class, which is free, sign up the next time you are in the library.
