The new year brings with it a sense of renewal-With that comes new promises and goals. It is time to reflect on the past year and ponder the future. What is it that makes us want to start a new? Is it because we like endings and beginnings? Or is it because we have a desire to look towards the experts and check out books on the latest and greatest. Whatever it is, the library is always here to help. We have many brand new books about essential oils and healthy dieting techniques. We have books about how to get your new year in order with better financial planning. If we don't have what you seek, we can order it for free from any library in the North Country. If you are interested in romance, we have a great series set in the Amish community about love and commitment and hard work and mystery. They are excellent, very nice, reads. Many patrons have recommended them highly! If you seek periodicals, we have the latest magazines including Food Network, Rachel Ray, Better Homes and Gardens, The New Yorker, Taste of Home, Woman's Day, The National Geographic and many more. For the kiddos, we have Highlights interactive magazine available.
The internet is always available as well. We are anxiously awaiting our new fiber optics line which will make our internet speed instantaneous. This will be coming in the spring. We have free Wi-Fi, internet, and books are always free. We have color and black and white printing, and faxing capabilities for a very small fee.
