January Library News

The Media Film Festival will visit the library on Monday January 13th at 11AM.  They will be showing a “best of” collection of short films shown at their festival over the years.

Thanks to the Ethel Clark Foundation and their Chair Jack Holefelder for their grant boosting this year’s budget!  We were able to keep our children’s area fresh with new items including toys and a new rug, provide new electronics for patrons to borrow, offer new programs and update the tools used by staff thanks to this grant!

Thanks to the Ethel Clark grant, you can now check out a projector with your library card.  Go to the catalog at www.astonlibrary.org to reserve this item.
