About the Library: Snow Days

Contains information on the library's hours, check out policies, rules, and services

Snow Days

Read a good book. You can even read it on your iPad if you like.

Prefer a movie? We have streaming videos, including all of Shakespeare’s plays. 

“Blow, blow, thou winter wind,

Thou art not so unkind

As man’s ingratitude;

Thy tooth is not so keen,..”

Don’t forget our hundreds of DVDs. You can check them out, along with DVD players, or watch them individually here in the library using headphones, or gather some friends together and view them in one of our cozy study rooms. Sorry, no pop corn.

I've Got to Get to the Library

“Harry — I think I've just understood something! I've got to go to the library!”

And she sprinted away, up the stairs.

“What does she understand?” said Harry distractedly, still looking around, trying to tell where the voice had come from.

“Loads more than I do,” said Ron, shaking his head.

“But why’s she got to go to the library?”

“Because that’s what Hermione does,” said Ron, shrugging. “When in doubt, go to the library.”

― J.K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets
