I'd be happy if I could think that the role of the library was sustained and even enhanced in the age of the computer.

The book choice for August is The Love Song of Miss Queenie Hennessy by Rachel Joyce.
In this poignant parallel story to The Unlikely Pilgrimage of Harold Fry, acclaimed author Rachel Joyce brings Queenie Hennessy’s voice into sharp focus. Setting pen to paper, Queenie makes a journey of her own, a journey that is even bigger than Harold’s; one word after another, she promises to confess long-buried truths—about her modest childhood, her studies at Oxford, the heartbreak that brought her to Kingsbridge and to loving Harold, her friendship with his son, the solace she has found in a garden by the sea. And, finally, the devastating secret she has kept from Harold for all these years.
Also available in Large Print or Audio!
The library has limited parking spaces in the Loft Apartments parking lot located on Bitting Alley. Patrons are to use the spaces on the far right next to the bamboo and the three closest spaces in front of the recycling bin. The other spaces are for residents of the Lofts Apartments. Street parking is available on Main Street. Additional parking for storytimes and special events is available at Bitting and 4th behind First Niagara Bank. The Lofts have been generous with us by covering snow removal and parking lot lighting costs. Please do not park in the apartment spaces.
This is especially important during popular programs in the summer months like Tuesday story time. Please consider our neighbors.
