Join the Friends of Watkins Library as we welcome WGHS students Juliette Barbay, Hannah Armstrong and Corey Flahive to Books Sandwiched In on March 19th at noon. Juliette comes to us from Belgium, while Hannah and Corey will share their adventures from their China program last summer. Meet these intrepid young women and enjoy their window on the world! As always, coffee, tea and delicious dessert will be provided.

Thanks to a grant funded by the Corning Incorporated Foundation, we now have 3 NOOK Simple Touch e-Readers loaded with popular eBooks to loan to our patrons! E-Readers and eBooks are fast becoming a part of everyday life, and the library is a great place to become familiar with this new technology. Try them out—take them home—see what you think! Books are loaded on--you don't need a computer or Internet. We will continue to add NEW titles!
Exciting New Service!
