December Announcements from the Andrew Heiskell Library


As we get ready to say farewell to 2010, we want to wish all our patrons and their families a Happy New Year. The library will be closed on Saturday, December 25 for Christmas and on Saturday, January 1, 2011 for New Year's Day. You'll still be able to leave a Voicemail message and we'll get back to you as soon as we can.

Our Citizens Advisory Council will meet on Saturday, January 8 at 11:30 a.m. in our first floor community room. The Council meetings provide a forum for patrons to give feedback on library service. All patrons are welcome to attend.

We would like to resume Braille Literacy classes at the library and we need volunteer instructors. If you're interested and able to teach braille skills, please contact the library. And if you're interested in learning braille, let us know.

Also of Interest: Governor Patterson talked to The New York Times about his concerns, as a legally blind person, about the challenges facing him when he leaves office.
