Summer Hours
(begin May 1)
Winter Hours
(begin October 1)



Heroes on Parade!
We will be joining forces with the Paine Memorial Library and marching in the 4th of July parade in Willsboro tomorrow.  In keeping with our Every Hero Has a Story theme for summer reading, we encourage everyone who marches to bring a sign with the name of one of their heroes.  We hope that lots of children and adults will join us. Feel free to dress up!
 We will have an assigned space in the line-up on Mountain View road, and all marchers should be there by 10:45.  The library section will include the Paine Memorial Library float, marchers from both libraries, and the Belden Noble Memorial Library banner and MINI Cooper convertible.

Adirondack Art Association program
 On Wednesday, July 8, at 7:00 p.m., Susan Britain and Bill Amadon will give a short presentation on the history of the Adirondack Art Association and talk about their art and how they approach their work.  They will also have examples of their art on display.

Every Hero Has a Story program continues
  Our summer reading program continues on Thursday, July 9, at 2:00 p.m. when we will be reading books from the collection of 100 brand new children's books donated by the Brownstone Book Fund.  This will be a great opportunity to take out some of these wonderful new books.
