Altamont Library Notes for Wednesday, October 2, 2013

A good rule for all public libraries:  Don’t take your volunteers for granted.  Thank them often.  Occasionally thank them publicly. 

We are grateful for the help we receive from Elfriede Erickson, Sarah Killian, Brenden Testa, Nina Kryzak, Christine Cardona, and Adam Hoffman.  We hope our Altamont Free Library patrons will show their own gratitude.

Adult craft

The first ever Adult Creative Hour will begin on Monday, Oct. 7, at 7 p.m.  We’ll be making dictionary necklaces.  The idea is to encase a word of true import to the necklace wearer in a handmade setting.


Would your young preschooler enjoy making some new friends?  If not, would it be good for her or him anyway? If so, story time at the library makes good sense. It’s a half hour of songs, stories, finger plays, laughter, and a craft. We get together every Wednesday morning at 10:30 a.m.
