HAPPY NEW YEAR!
Have you ever stood in front of a series of books and wondered "Which one comes first?" So I have I! With the help of a URI graduate student, I've taken all the series books and audiobooks in the teen section and given them a green SERIES label, along with which book in the series it is. Hopefully this will make browsing easier and more fun for everyone! Need a book in the series that is not on the shelf? See any staff memeber at the teen or reference desks to place a hold! Happy Reading! -Miss Jenn
We have all been watching the news with more horror and sorrow than usual lately. The riots in Ferguson, Missouri have hurt our collective soul in a way we have not seen since 9/11.
In all of the sadness, it is important to remember that there are many amazing people in Ferguson who love their town and see better days ahead. To that end, we want to salute the local library for doing all they can to show support for their community and help to mend the many wounds that are wide open right now.
