Out with the Snow, In with the new

Mount Perkins still stands but she is melting by the minute! The last week of March never fails to be one of the most shape shifting times of the year in New England. It's the ultimate tug of war between mother nature with winter on one side and spring eternal on the other. That snow can't melt fast enough however, as we are hosting hundreds of you here in the library as I type during X block. It sounds like a complaint, but it is actually the time that I love most in the library. It's like having a full house for the holidays, (minus the olfactory trifecta of turkey, chestnuts and a roaring fire), otherwise virtually the same.  At times like this, I enjoy sitting at the circulation desk, catching up with as many of you as I can. Hearing of your spring break adventures, college acceptance reports and final grades on history papers!!! In the last 2 days, we have had Mr. Nichols, Mr. Scheintaub and Mrs. Gold all comment on how much FUN it is to hang out at the circulation desk. Given, we have a variety of improbable puzzles (futile really, unless you are Misha Tolman), tanagrams, trivia, magnetic poetry and (more often than not) candy...we prefer to think that our charisma and promise of stimulating conversation are the ultimate allure to hang out at the desk.

That's right we are official members of the cool librarians club, in case you were socially in arrears...

We also want to remind everyone that the Library will be hosting its 2nd annual Peep Diorama Contest! Start brainstorming for your book themed diorama now!

Make sure you check out the new Peek into Pesky newsletter and please check in with us. You always make our days!
