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.

Library Update

Masks are not required in the library building. The small study rooms are available, and the library meeting rooms will reopen on July 6, 2021. Some programs will be offered in person starting in July, though many programs continue to be virtual. Curbside service is still available by request. We appreciate your patience and support as we continue our phased approach to reopening. The safety of our community is the highest priority and the Board of Trustees meets regularly to revisit policies. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Library Director Rachel Keeler at rachel@tpml.org.

IttyBitty Toddler Storytime and Preschool Storytime are taking a break through the remainder of August and will start again the second week in September.  It is a great time for the staff to regroup and get energized for the Fall while parents and kids enjoy the last of summer and gear up for school!  Have a great August and we’ll see you in September!

Current Book: I got the Rhythm by Connie Schofield-Morrison

On a simple trip to the park, the joy of music overtakes a mother and daughter. The little girl hears a rhythm coming from the world around her- from butterflies, to street performers, to ice cream sellers everything is musical! She sniffs, snaps, and shakes her way into the heart of the beat, finally busting out in an impromptu dance, which all the kids join in on! Award-winning illustrator Frank Morrison and Connie Schofield-Morrison, capture the beat of the street, to create a rollicking read that will get any kid in the mood to boogie.
