A travelling exhibition organized by the Long Island Libraries Resource Council (LILRC) will be on view in the Local History Center January 3 through 30. This exhibit is sponsored by New York Heritage, Empire State Library Network and the Digital Public Library of America (DPLA).
Originally created to celebrate the 200th Anniversary of the Erie Canal, this travelling exhibit also features an additional online component which may be viewed here.
PWPL is delighted to offer Chromebooks for use in the Library. We hope these will be helpful to adults and teens who want to find a quiet corner to do some online work or a conversation-friendly table to do a project.
Macmillan, one of the world's largest publishing companies, no longer supports your right to get the books you want, when you want, from your local public library. Beginning November 1, they plan to limit each library to ONE COPY of new e-books for the first two months of release.
We invite you to read 1,000 books with your child before he or she begins kindergarten. The concept is simple, but the rewards are priceless. Read a book (any book) to your newborn, infant, and/or toddler. The goal is to read 1,000 books (yes, you can repeat books!) before your child starts kindergarten.
