And you’re not going to want to miss the art exhibit in the Alice C. Sabatini Gallery. It’ll be creepy cool!

Looking for inspiration for something new to read? Open up these pages for Hot, New Books recommended by librarians who purchase books for the library. Great reads for both grownups and kids!

Planning a summer vacation? Our music librarians have picked out some rockin’ tunes to create the ultimate summer road trip playlist.

Got a question? Ask a librarian. We answer questions via text, phone, in person, email and online chat. It’s convenient to ask your librarian, a trusted source for information. See page 4.
