The library now has a discord server just for teens! This server is a virtual hangout space for teens that will be used for chatting, gaming, and other activities. The Public Services Librarian will be on the server as an administrator, and for anyone who has questions about programs, school, life, or if you just need someone to talk to. To ensure the security of the server and its participants, the server is by invite only. Please send e-mail jamie@tpml.org for the link to join.

Visit Our StoryWalk! – Take a Walk, Read a Book, Share an Adventure!

The StoryWalk® Project was created by Anne Ferguson of Montpelier, VT and developed in collaboration with the Kellogg-Hubbard Library. This StoryWalk® was funded by the Friends of the Tye Preston Memorial Library in conjunction with donations from The Big Give 2020. Our StoryWalk® starts at the top of TPML’s parking lot and ends at the outdoor play area. Be sure to sign our guest book!

Current Book: Where Are You From? By Yamile Saied Méndez

“When a young girl is asked where she’s from—where she’s really from—she’s no longer as sure as she was. She decides to turn to her dear abuelo for some help with this ever-persistent question. But he doesn’t quite give her the answer she expects.”
