Welcome new guinea pig!

Frequent patrons know that our guinea pig, Ginger, has gone to heaven. Thanks to Colette Bezio who found us a new guinea pig to replace Ginger. The new guinea pig is in a cage WITHIN the guinea pig cage to get acclimated to Snickers and vice versa.

     We are accepting name ideas now for the new pet. There is a place at the library counter for you to fill out a slip with your name idea and submit it. Then, Colette will make a name ballot for everyone to have an opportunity to vote! Hurray!

Two films are up for an Oscar!

Wow and wow! Two of the shorts we screened during the Manhattan Short Film Festival (last October) are up for OSCARS!!!

Reading help for caregivers

Caregiving takes all sorts of forms. We know that caregiving can be challenging and taxing. Caregiving during the holidays can be especially stressful.

Here are the two newest books added to Infosoup on this topic.  These and so many more are available with your library card.

Consider taking the time to read a book that will help you with ideas for nurturing yourself.

 

Home grown Derek Hendzel

This summer (2018) Seymour native Derek Hendzel was home for his high school reunion. We learned about him when we saw the drone video he took over the Burger Fest weekend. With this video he captured the amazing hot air balloon rally from a whole new perspective. He stopped by the library and we learned that he travels all over the world and lives in the Middle East. This page will be devoted to footage shared by Derek with us. We wish to learn about international countries through his eyes. We wish to dream big and think globally! Let's start with the aforementioned "cool" video!
