WEEKLY QUOTE “I see everything I paint in this world, but everybody does not see alike. To the eyes of a miser a guinea is more beautiful than the sun and a bag worn with the use of money has more beautiful proportions than a vine filled with grapes. The tree which moves some to tears of joy is in the eyes of others only a green thing that stands in the way.”  – William Blake

LIBRARY CLOSED  We will be closed tomorrow, Wednesday the 18th, for maintenance.  We will re-open at 9 AM on Thursday, May 19th.  The interior elevator will remain closed for repairs.  Story Time is cancelled this week and will return on the 25th at 10:30 AM.  We apologize for the inconvenience.


DISPLAY  We have new antiques on display in our long and our tall cabinets.  Jim Rupert has loaned us a portion of his collection of found objects.  Come take a peek at the old bottles, clay pipes, coins, and more.

DOCUMENTARY  Come view Under Our Skin tonight at 5:30 PM and learn more about treatments for chronic Lyme disease.

JUST ARRIVED  Still missing Downton Abbey?  Take a book-vacation to the English countryside and see how the wealthy lived during the inter-war period in Adrian Tinniswood’s The Long Weekend.  If you’re up for more globe-trotting, also check out Worlds Elsewhere, which looks at how Shakespeare’s plays have been interpreted around the world.  Prefer to stay closer to home?  We have two new books – Tom Paine’s Iron Bridge and Thomas Jefferson’s America – examining the colonies and new United States in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Come forward in time with We The People and learn about modern figures whose actions were as influential as those of our traditional “Founding Fathers (and Mothers.)”  Finally, give yourself a glimpse of summer with Silent Sparks, an illustration-filled book about the lives, mysteries, and myths of fireflies.
