Mango Week, and More!

This week the whole East Longmeadow Library is acting a little silly. From Sombreros, to chili pepper necklaces, and everyone speaking a different language- it must be Mango week! What is Mango week? Well, its a time to get to know a really cool program that we offer at the library. Have you ever wanted to learn Spanish, or Greek, or Japanese? All you need is your East Longmeadow Library card and interntet acess and ta-da! You're bilingual! Stop by the library and check out a free demo, gets some books on other countries, and play a neat game in the children's department (AND, check out everyones nifty duds). Come by any time when the libray is open Tuesday, 8/24- Thursday, 8/26.

And, September is right around the corner! Here's what's happening:

Labor Day: The library will be closed 9/6.

Make and Take: Stop by anytime during the week of 9/7-9/11 to create a fun craft. No registration is required, just come on in!

Children's Book Sale: Do you have books you'd like to get rid of? We are now excepting children's books that are in good shape for our children's book sale. All of the proceeds will go towards the purchase of an early literacy computer. The book sale will start during the Harvest Cooking Challenge, 9/20 at 6pm and run through Oct. 2nd.
