Coming Soon: Our Teen Collection is getting a new look!

Fri, 02/12/2021 - 4:33pm -- Emily S

We are very excited to announce that our Teen Collection will soon be getting a new look! We will be renaming it Middle Grade.

The Teen collection has always been meant for the upper end of the age range that we serve here in the Children’s Room, however the name ‘Teen’ can be misleading. The books, audiobooks, and graphic novels in our Teen collection have always been intended for kids ages 9-12. Renaming the collection to Middle Grade helps clarify the intended audience for these materials.

Let us answer some questions you might have about the renaming!

2021 Youth Media Awards

Every year, the American Library Association announces the Youth Media Award winners at their midwinter conference. This year’s conference was held virtually last week and an impressive slate of winners and honors were announced. Congratulations to all of this year’s winners!

We are big fans of previous winners here in the children's room and those of us that haven't read this year's winners are really looking forward to it! Have you read these titles? Let us know what you think!

 

Our New StoryWalk is Installed!

Thu, 09/10/2020 - 3:27pm -- Emily S

We are so excited to invite you to try our new StoryWalk at the Bedford Village Common!

Pick a nice day, pack a picnic, and head over to the common to take a stroll and enjoy Pete the Cat: I Love My White Shoes by Eric Litman and James Dean.
As you stroll through the common, you’ll see pages of the story installed next to the path. Page 1 is right after the arch where you enter the common and the story will take you over the bridge, around the gazebo, and back over the bridge to end back near the arch. All pages are numbered so you’ll know where to head next.

Try our new Book Bundle Request Form!

Fri, 08/14/2020 - 3:00pm -- Emily S

There's no doubt about it, helping patrons pick out books is one of our favorite parts of the job. Couple that with the notion that library services are changing with the times and our new Book Bundle Request Form was born. You fill out the form with information to let us know what you're looking for and we'll pull 5 books for you within 2 business days and place them on hold to be picked up via our Lower Level contact-free pickup.
