Librarian's Corner

Fall is here and we’ve got lots of fun autumn activities planned for you. Enjoy the fall sunshine and color at our Outdoor Storytimes on Tuesday mornings. Preserve the bounty of this year’s garden by learning how to save and store seeds for next year’s planting at our Seed Saving Workshop. Visit the Library to decorate a mini pumpkin, go on our Library Scavenger Hunt, and pick up a Halloween Take-Home Storytime Kit. As we look ahead to our winter calendar we need to hear from you about what programs you’d like to see and in what format. Give us your feedback by filling out our programming survey online or in the library. Not subscribed to Library emails?

The nights are getting longer. Stock up on books to read at our extra-long October Book Sale. Or download an eBook, audiobook, or movie from our Hoopla collection – there’s never any waiting list for Hoopla titles!

The Personal Librarian
by Marie Benedict

Book Cover


Historical Fiction at its best! This is the remarkable, little-known story of Belle da Costa Greene, J. P. Morgan's personal librarian--who became one of the most powerful women in New York despite her dangerous secret. The story shares the lengths to which she must go to preserve her carefully crafted white identity in the racist world in which she lives. "Truly a wonderful read!" Harwinton Library Staff Member
