NEW Teen Group Forms at the RML

September 28, 2019

Local tweens and teens, in grades five and above, have formed a new library group dedicated to activites for students ages 10 to 18, in grades 5 to 12. The group decided to call themselves. TACOS, which stands for Teen Advisory Council of Students. At our first meeting, the teens and tweens also made Sharpie Tie Dye t-shirts.

Our informal meetings include ice breaker games, and we will be serving pizza, snacks, and drinks. We will also do activities at our meetings, guided by the members' interests.

While the group is just getting started, at future meetings the teens tweens will help plan programming for their peers, as well as contribute ideas for materials purchasing. The group will also have the opportunity to plan events for other age groups, and host those events. The group is facilitated by the Children's Librarian. We would like to thank the Friends of the Richards Memorial Library for supporting this program.

The TACOS group is just getting started. If your tween or tween ages 10 to 18 is interested in joining us, our next meeting is on Thursday, October 24, 2019 from 6pm to 7pm.

Try Libby, the Overdrive App


Starting July 1st, 2019, you will no longer have to remember to call or log into your account to renew physical items (not OverDrive items) that you have checked out.

If a checked out item can be renewed, it will automatically be renewed on the due date.

An email notification will be sent on the due date alerting you of the renewal status for checked out items. 

It will indicate if your items were successfully renewed or unable to be renewed.

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.
