We’re lifting the time and capacity requirements! Visitors to the Library will no longer have to limit their stay to 30 minutes  and physical distancing is being relaxed. Items no longer are required to be quarantined so you can return books inside as well as continue to put them in the book drop. Please note that we still ask that you WEAR A MASK. We are happy to continue to offer curbside service upon request.
.
We understand that the risk of going mask-less is small for those who are vaccinated, however, we do not want to police who has and who has not been vaccinated. In addition, there is a continuing risk for children and those who have not been vaccinated, for whatever reason, and we want everyone to feel welcome. The Children’s Room restrictions have not changed – only 1 person/family at a time in the Children’s Room, children age 10 and older can go to the Children’s Room on their own, and face coverings that cover the nose and mouth are required. Toys and seating in the Children’s Room have been removed. Discovery Kits may be borrowed for 4 weeks and will rest for 1 week before being recirculated. (more…)

A collection of skulls, study skins, and other specimens complements a discussion of adaptations and the role each animal plays in the food web. Ages 4-12.

150 Years Ago

150About 35 years ago, Janet Heslam bought from an antique shop in Brooks four daily journals from October 1864 to October 1871.  It turns out they were written by a man in Montville who farmed, but he also supervised the one room school houses. At the end of the first journal, she found the signature of H. M. Howard. The other journals are not signed. Janet determined the journalist was 27, in 1865, and his daughter Eva died in 1864. Janet decided to transcribe these journals to share in her weekly letters to her grandchildren. She offered to share these transcriptions so they could be posted on the Library webpage for everyone to read. We will post one a month. It will be interesting as we go through the year to compare the daily happenings of a man 150 years ago to the present day. We hope you enjoy!
