Thank you!

Dear Friends and neighbors,  I will be leaving soon and I want to thank each and every one of you for the honor and privilege of serving as Director of the New City Library.  It has been an exciting time and I take comfort in knowing that I leave a stronger and better library. 

Customer service has been the hallmark of my tenure.   A thorough review of procedures was undertaken and completed to ensure it was a customer friendly library.   Customer Service was highlighted at every staff meeting with many staff development efforts to ensure staff is prepared to go beyond customer expectations.  The Library has become known in the region to have the best and most responsive staff. 

Finger Spelling with Signing Hands

Families are invited to join us on Sunday, May 6th at 3:00pm for a special performance by Little Productions.

Ever wonder how deaf children and adults communicate using sign language? 

Here's your chance to experience this unique form of communication.

Learn how to fingerspell, play animal charades, watch deaf performers act and learn to "sing" in sign!  You'll learn to sign and sing, "Hands Up" and "I Just can't wait to be King" from Disney's "The Lion King."  Parents, did you know that many Universities and Colleges now accept American Sign Language as a foreign language credit? 

Come and enjoy the show as you learn to use American Sign Language.

Royal Romances

Royal Wedding of Prince William & Kate Middleton - from The Daily MailCan you believe it's been a year already?  Yesterday marked the first anniversary of Britain's Prince William and his bride Kate (now known as Her Royal Highness The Duchess of Cambridge, Countess of Strathearn, Baroness Carrickfergus).  America may not have celebrated with a bank holiday (though you're welcome to pretend, since our banks were closed on Sunday anyway), but I'm certain there were plenty of royal-watching Americans who raised a glass in their honor yesterday.
