Let me suggest a new year’s resolution that will be easy to keep! Try visiting your local library on a regular basis. Our gem of a library in Montgomery offers six computers for public use as well as wireless internet for your own laptop if you need a quiet place to work or browse online. Of course, you can borrow plenty of books, dvds, and audiobooks to enjoy during these cold winter days.
Browse the list of new materials on the library’s website: www.montgomerylib.org and if you want a title that’s not on the shelves, Sue or Cindy will be happy to track it down for you. New hours are now in effect: Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday and Friday: Noon to 8:00 p.m.; Thursday and Saturday: 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. and every Tuesday evening at 6:30, stop by with your little ones for storytime.
