Reading Fun for All Ages this Summer!
Children who read, or are read to, every day have a stronger chance of maintaining learning skills over the summer. Gaylord Library in South Hadley offers incentives and activities for all ages to enjoy a summer of reading fun! The program begins on June 16th, and features a free concert for families with Craig Harris – Songs, Stories and Rhythms of the River – on July 10 at 10:30am. For teens and adults, we have raffles for great summer reading prizes.

eBooks are Here!
Here it is… You asked for digital content and we heard you! The Commonwealth eBook Collections program was created to better serve, educate, and inform the patrons of Massachusetts Libraries. From our website, you can search for eBooks and more from our partners – BiblioLabs, EBL, and Baker & Taylor. Search for a book, check it out, download the materials to your device, and you’re off and running! The Commonwealth eBook Collections program is brought to you by the Massachusetts Library System in partnership with the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners and the Millmont Foundation. Need help getting started? We will have a volunteer available on Thursdays, July 9th and July 16th from 5:30-8pm to assist, and more time slots will be posted soon.


Borrow A Chromebook!
We have two new Chromebooks – one for in-library use and one which may be checked out for one week by patrons over 18. Borrow a Chromebook to try out, to take on a trip, or when your own computer is being repaired! We thank a generous anonymous donor for providing this service. Further information in the body of the newsletter!


Seeking Young Adult Volunteers!
The Youth Services Department is looking for summer pre-teen or teen volunteers! Duties would include helping set up crafts, story time on Friday mornings at 10am, and shelving and sorting books. Stop by the library to fill out a volunteer application if any of these jobs interest you. We look forward to working with you this summer!

Do you know somebody who loves to read, but can’t get out of the house to visit the Library? 

We still have space for one more Home Delivery client.  This is a free service provided by Gaylord Library volunteers!  Please contact us if you, or anyone you know, is interested in this service.
