We are experiencing an issue with our Kanopy service that will prevent users from accessing titles. We hope to resolve this as soon as we can. Thank you for your patience.

The library is hosting a town hall meeting at main library building (65 Scotland Rd.) on Thursday, 4/18, at 7 p.m., where architect Andrew Berman will present plans for building project. Details here.

Ms. Keisha is our new Head of Youth Services!

In this newly-created position, Miller will oversee children’s and teen services, which includes programming, collection development, and staff management.
“It’s extra special to work in such a beautiful town with a village of diverse people and ideas,” she said. “For this reason and so many others, I am equally excited to continue the work and advocacy for the youth in the community.”
Miller has been a mainstay at the library since 1998, when she began working part-time as a children’s page. In subsequent years, her responsibilities have grown, earning her Master’s Degree in Library and Information Science from Pratt Institute in 2012, and as the library’s teen librarian, she has led the VolunTEEN program every summer.

Come on in and say congratulations to Ms. Keisha!
