Scheduled Website Downtime

The CPL website will be unavailable on Tuesday, December 8, starting at 9 AM. At that time, we will be upgrading the website, which may require several hours of downtime. This upgrade will provide more security and keep us current with industry standards.

The library will remain open and you will still be able to use the online catalog to renew your items, place holds, and more. You will also still be able to access the Program Calendar.

We thank you for your patience as we work to serve you better.

Lunch and a Book January 2016

 

All the light we cannot see: a novel by Anthony Doerr — When Marie Laure is six, she goes blind, and her father builds her a model of their neighborhood, so she can memorize it with her fingers and navigate the real streets. When the Germans occupy Paris, father and daughter flee to Saint-Malo on the Brittany coast. In Germany, an orphan boy, Werner, grows up with his younger sister, Jutta, both enchanted by a crude radio Werner finds. He becomes a master at building and fixing radios, a talent that wins him a place at an elite and brutal military academy and, ultimately, makes him a highly specialized tracker of the Resistance. Werner travels through the heart of Hitler Youth to the far-flung outskirts of Russia, and finally into Saint-Malo, where his path converges with Marie-Laure. Please join us at noon on January 14.

Children's Library Items are on the Move

In preparation for the Children's Library renovation, which begins in earnest on January 4, 2016, we have begun moving materials and clearing out supplies and furnishings. Relocated materials will be shelved in the East End of the library; other items will be packed for storage and inaccessible. We will make every attempt to provide you with the services you need during this transition process; however, some furnishings and computers will be removed from the space during the week of December 21. Children's Library users may access computers in the main library and Teen Place. The space will be closed to the public beginning December 31. Ask any staff member for help in locating what you need.
