During a recent MLS workshop I was provided the number of visitors to Massachusetts libraries (2014-statistics) 37,089,488. This is amazing! This flat Massachusetts project will allow children to observe the number of libraries in our state and the connection between each of us as we share our resources. Our Facebook Page will allow libraries to track Flat Massachusetts and view the number of push pins that have been added each week. I encourage participating libraries to take a picture of flat Massachusetts and post to the special Facebook wall. At the end of the summer, I will create an illustration by affixing push pins to the map that represent all libraries across Massachusetts, using embroidery floss I will connect the participating libraries using gold embroidery floss and black embroidery floss will represent the libraries that did not place a push pin on the map.

Backyard Astronomy: Come in to borrow the library telescope!

Please come on in to check out the library telescope to observe objects from your own backyard using a technique called star-hopping and learn how easy it is to use!

This telescope was donated to the library by John C. Root in memory of his wife, Susan E. Root, and is maintained by Aldrich Astronomical Society, Inc. as part of their Adopt a Library Program.
