Schiavo Library: August 2011 Newsletter

Schiavo Library: August 2011 Newsletter

Special Summer Programs:
*Wetlands Institute Program “Amazing Sea Creatures”: August 11th 7 – 8:00pm. Join us in the parking lot for this great family program!

*Local Authors Night: August 18th 6:30-8:00pm. All book lovers welcome! Come and discuss books with some really interesting local authors. Light refreshments will be available.

Welcome to a New Assistant:
If you stop in on a Saturday, you’ll meet our new assistant: Melissa Warren. She lives in Sea Isle City with her husband and two children. She’ll help us cover Saturdays and other days of the week during the off-season.

More Popular than ever:
Thank you patrons!! We have even more people than ever using our library this summer!
In June 371 people visited the library (141 additional stopped in for the book sale).
In July we had 639 people use the library – for books, computers, DVDs, children’s programs, newspapers, magazines, etc. We continue to attract new members. Our book and DVD circulation are up substantially – we checked out 251 books and 77 DVDs in July. Our wish is to make this a very welcoming place to visit and the best small library in New Jersey.

Children’s Programs:
If you haven’t yet come for one of our summer children’s programs, you don’t know what you’re missing. Our story time, Craft night with Megan, LEGO club, movie morning and BINGO are tons of fun for the kids. Unfortunately the end of summer will be here soon – so stop in before it’s too late!

Save the date:
Don’t forget that we have another used book sale in September – dates: September 9 – 23 (or later). Lots of donations have been coming in all summer – so there should be something for everyone.

Enjoy the rest of your summer!
Christine Rohrman, Library Director
