5. Get Comfy with Your Favorite Book in the Reading Tower

Although there are many great spaces in the newly expanded and renovated Jeanne Barnett Trone Memorial Library of East Berlin (formerly the East Berlin Community Library), my favorite is the Reading Tower. It’s beautiful!

6. Explore the New Space of the Fairfield Library (Coming Spring 2017!)

We’re excited to announce that the Fairfield Area Library is moving to a large, modern location. The 1,800-square-foot space, offered by the Borough of Carroll Valley, is part of the Borough’s municipal building, which will also house government offices, police operations, a community center, and outdoor amenities including a stage. According to ACLS Executive Director, Karla Trout, “whether our neighbors come for a class, educational resources or recreational reading or viewing materials, they will find what they seek, and they will be hesitant to leave this fantastic new space!”

7. Tell Dawn What You’ve Discovered!
