Grieving During the Holidays

The holidays can be an especially painful time of year for people who are mourning the death of a loved one. Whether the loss occurred over the past year or decades ago, this season can bring renewed or intensified grief.

On December 19 from 1-2 pm, licensed social worker Roberta Wold will present a program at the library on how to survive the holidays after the death of a loved one. This program is free and open to all members of the public.

Exciting Enhancements to Adult Fiction!

As you may or may not know, the library will be closed from December 12-17. During this time, we will be re-carpeting the first floor of the library, which means removing all the materials from their current locations. As we re-assemble the adult fiction collections you know and love, we will be taking this opportunity to improve the layout.

The adult fiction paperbacks will no longer be shelved by genre (western, mystery, science fiction, romance, etc). Instead, we will be filing all the paperbacks by author, which will allow us to keep all of an author’s titles together. The paperbacks will continue to be labeled with genre stickers for your convenience. Other planned enhancements include placing high demand adult movies (DVD and VHS) in a more prominent spot and providing the growing adult audiobooks collection with some room to expand. Also be on the lookout for the inclusion of a new collection in adult fiction: graphic novels for adult audiences.

As always, library staff members are happy to help you locate the items you are looking for. We thank you for your patience during this transition.
