2012 LIBRARY BUDGET VOTE
Tuesday, April 3 Library Budget Passes: 168 Yes, 69 No
As I write this, your library is hosting the CSH Civic Association with guest speaker Dr. William Spencer, Suffolk County Legislator, there is a meeting of the CSH Lacrosse Club, students are doing assignments, and people of all ages are using the computers and borrowing material. We see every day that the library means different things to each of you. For some, it’s a quiet refuge from a hectic day; for others, it’s a gathering place to listen, learn, and linger.
Except for the flu, which has gripped so many this season, winter has been kind to our neighborhood (Update: Mother nature had other plans for us. Blizzard Nemo landed on us after this letter was written). Attendance at our morning and evening exercise programs is strong; please look for the next sessions to begin soon, and take advantage of these very cost-effective programs. Our book discussions are led by experienced librarians and are an excellent way to find the next great book while making new friends. Storytimes and playtimes for preschoolers, including many special craft programs, are always popular. On March 19, grades 5-8 will be making wind chimes from flower pots. Preregistration is mandatory, and may be done through the library’s online events calendar, or by telephone. See page 4 of the newsletter for details.
Welcome to 2013! Some people fear the number 13, while others consider it lucky. Personally, 13 has been a lucky number in my life, and therefore I approach this New Year with a sense of excitement about the future.
You have many choices today about how and where to get information, and your librarians are constantly seeking out reliable and verifiable sources. Now more than ever, the notion of trust plays a key role in our decision-making process. Whether you are faced with challenges or opportunities for yourself or your family, the public library is your gateway to sources that educate, enlighten, and entertain.
The warm, relaxing days of August are a distraction from the stark realities of a new school year and all the necessary planning and preparing.
Once the school year begins, the weight of homework on students and parents is undeniable. We have many resources available at the library and through our website to lessen the burden. The best place to start is Homework Help at www.cshlibrary.org, where you can find the free online tutoring service, Brainfuse. For students of foreign languages, Mango Languages is a self-paced audio-visual program with more than 40 languages to choose from.read more...
With the warm weather and abundant sunlight typical of June, we are preparing for the summer vacation season. For many, summer means lazy days by the water with a paperback. Today, perhaps a Kindle or an iPad is stuffed in an oversized bag, along with sunscreen, a towel, a hat, and a water bottle. Whatever your summer plans may be, your library has fun events for all ages every day, or just stop by to pick up a good book, movie, or music. If you plan to take an extended holiday, let us know and we will extend the due dates for your items at the Circulation Desk.
