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 recommended in the library building. The small study rooms are available, though the meeting rooms remain closed, and all programming continues 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.

Current Book: If You Plant a Seed by Kadir Nelson

“Kadir Nelson, acclaimed author of Baby Bear and winner of the Caldecott Honor and the Coretta Scott King Author and Illustrator Awards, presents a resonant, gently humorous story about the power of even the smallest acts and the rewards of compassion and generosity.

With spare text and breathtaking oil paintings, If You Plant a Seed demonstrates not only the process of planting and growing for young children but also how a seed of kindness can bear sweet fruit.”
