If you'd like to fill out an application for a BJs membership -- or extend your current membership -- stop by the library over the next couple of days and fill out an application. Thanks!

I just thought it was important to let the Storytime kids know we'll be ending our program this Wednesday, June 21st. To celebrate, we'll be having a little "party," so do come if you can. We will begin the Storytime program again in September when the kids go back to school. Our first Wednesday back will be September 12th at the usual time -- stories begin at 10:30AM, followed by a session of show & tell, as well as a craft on most weeks.
Be sure to stop by the library this summer, as we've got lots of great programs for kids of all ages! See our brochure distributed to all the AES kids, or pick up a copy at the circulation desk.
Enjoy the summer!

Also, please note that the library will be assuming it's "summer schedule" beginning July 1st. In short, that means that there will be no Saturday hours until after Labor Day.

Stop by the library before July 3rd and fill out a special BJs application for a new membership or renewal. Instead of paying the regular Annual Membership Fee of $45, you'll pay $35, plus you'll have 3 additional months added on to your membership. For example, my current BJs membership will expire in August, but if I renew it through the this promotion, I'll save $10 off the membership PLUS my membership will now be active until November 2007. Best of all, BJs will give the Friends $5 for every new or renewal membership we can recruit by July 3rd, and eventually, whatever money the Friends raise from this venture will be donated back to the library for programs or materials or something good for our patrons. How can you go wrong?
Membership applications are available at the library circulation desk. Please ask, and help us out if you can!

Thanks to the Friends for their generosity!

In addition to programs this summer, your kids will have the opportunity to earn prizes by reading at least 10 books this summer. In addition to our popular "passport" program, we will have trips to the "treasure chest" for readers, as well as special prizes from Applebee's and the Connecticut Defenders Baseball Club (formerly, the Norwich Navigators). There will even be a special Library Night at Dodd Stadium in Norwich on August 15th, complete with postgame fireworks! For more information on the Defenders, go to their website.
School gets out on June 19th -- make sure your young readers are a part of our summer reading programs!
