SPECIAL THANK YOU FROM MS. CAROL – I want to thank the many people who helped make the 2017 Summer Reading Program a huge success. I am always amazed at the enthusiasm of the children, parents, and grandparents who come to the library all summer to borrow books, participate in programs and share with me what they have been reading.

We are also very fortunate to have a special collaboration with “Guest Readers” from our local community who volunteered their time over the summer to share story hours with the children. Their enthusiasm and cooperation contributed to the success of the Summer Reading Program.

I would also like to thank the Friends of the Library (FOL) who very generously donated to the Summer Reading Program. Through the combined efforts of the library and the FOL, the children were able to experience many performances and enjoy rewards throughout the summer.

Last, but not least, is a hearty thank you to the Office of Library and Information Services (OLIS), the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS). Their continued support makes the Summer Reading Program a successful and rewarding endeavor.

 

THANKS/CONGRATULATIONS – Thanks to the Rhode Island Museum of Science and Art for visiting the library and presenting two fantastic programs: “Building Techniques and Architecture” and “Sound Effects: The Incredible Perception of Sound.” In “Building Techniques and Architecture”, all of the participants designed and built forts using dowels, connectors, and cloth. In “Sound Effects”, participants learned the basic physics of sound while exploring the intricacies of human perception.

            Also, thanks to the Providence Children’s Film Festival for their “Build a Better World” film project. The children viewed a short film, learned about the language of film, participated in creating their own film project, and shared their voices about how they might “build a better world.”

            Both of these programs were made possible by the support of the Friends of the East Smithfield Public Library. Lastly, Bailey Gaffney was the winner of the Young Adult Summer Reading Program.

In this day and age of high energy prices, where else can you take your family for FREE! Also, for parents shopping for school supplies, remember: A LIBRARY CARD IS THE MOST IMPORTANT SCHOOL SUPPLY OF ALL.

 

FREE DIGITAL MEDIA DOWNLOADS – East Smithfield Public Library is a member of the Ocean State Libraries E-Zone! Anyone with an Ocean State Libraries (OSL) card can access this database and download digital media (audiobooks, music, e-books, and videos) for FREE! Digital media can be downloaded and listened to on your home personal computer (PC), burned to CD for your car stereo, and transferred to many portable audio devices, all without leaving the comfort of your home. Now your library never closes. Check one out today. For more information and a listing of titles available visit http://riezone.lib.overdrive.com.

 

PRESERVATION OF LIBRARY MATERIALS - We are all responsible for protecting the physical condition of library materials. Helpful hints: a) clean hands prevent buildup of grime and sticky substances; b) removing books from the shelves by pulling on the headband (top of the spine) will weaken and eventually destroy the book - to remove a book, gently push in the books on either side, grasp the book in the center, and remove it.

 

DONATIONS - We would like to express our thanks to all of our patrons and friends who have donated library materials during the past year. Your kind generosity in donating valuable materials such as books, videocassettes, CDs, DVDs, and other resources is much appreciated. You epitomize and perpetuate the true meaning of community library.

HALLOWEEN NOTE: Remember, even though we stock up on sweets and goodies for the little ghosts and goblins who will be visiting our homes, we should not forget that many cultures earnestly leave out food, sweets, and cigarettes as an offering for the dead who are believed to revisit the earth on the October 31 of each year.
