A Change of Scenery


            Greetings from our new location in Carroll Valley!  We have been here for two months now and have settled in nicely.  We just wanted to thank the seniors from the Fairfield High School, the Boy Scouts from Troop #76, and some of our wonderful patrons for all of their help during our move.  You packed, unpacked, cleaned, assembled, organized and transported for us.  All of this was done voluntarily and cheerfully and we just wanted you to know how awesome you are!  You proved the old saying “many hands make light work” and made our job a whole lot easier!

            For those of you who haven’t had a chance to visit, stop by and see us!  We are located in a new community building right next to a beautiful park.  It is a nice bright space with lots of items to choose from.  A recent addition to our new library is a big set of wooden blocks and other fun building toys that were provided by two grants from the Pennsylvania Department of Education.  Also, don’t forget to visit over the summer and join our summer reading program!  We have plenty of fun events planned!  Registration starts June 1st.

            Here’s an update on our library programs here in Carroll Valley.  We will be offering several Leap into Science STEM (science, technology, engineering and math)programs for families here at the library.  They will be held on Saturday, May 13th at 1:00 p.m. and Saturday, June 10th at 1:00 p.m.  Space is limited, so please call the library at 642-6009 to register for these fun and educational programs!

The next meeting of the library’s book club will be on Monday, May 15th at 7:00 p.m.  May’s book selection is “The Wright Brothers” by David McCullough.   Join us for some good company and conversation!

Preschool story time at the library will continue through the summer on Tuesday mornings at 10:00 a.m.  Join us for stories, songs, and crafts with Miss Crystal.  Bring your toddler and enjoy a morning at the library!
