Wowbrary Keeps You Up to Date (plus this week's events at Stratford!)

Ever wonder what new books or cds have been recently added to the library collection? Don't have time to browse the individual categories on our website? Or are you a visual person who is drawn in by the cover art? Take a second to check out Wowbrary. Here is a description of Wowbrary's service:

"Wowbrary is a nonprofit service that sends you free weekly emails featuring your public library's most recent acquisitions. We started Wowbrary because we were thrilled when we saw all the wonderful new books, DVDs, and CDs our local library acquires each week, and wanted everyone to discover how great their library is too." (see picture above of email sample)

It's great to be able to browse little pictures of the newest acquisitions right alongside descriptions that link directly to our HCPL catalog. I encourage you to check it out if you are an avid reader and like to stay posted as to what are some of the newer items in our collection. I only heard of it recently, so I wanted to share it with all of you.

What it won't tell you, however, are this week's events here at Stratford Library:

Tuesday, June 29th, 2pm - Gypsy Walker of the Children's Prison Arts
nonprofit will be presenting a Visual Arts Workshop. Attendees will have
the opportunity to create their own piece of visual art as well as enjoy
an exhibit created by juvenile offenders. In addition to libraries, Walker
runs workshops for juveniles currently serving time, and it is
inspirational to see their creativity. Come and join us! Please RSVP at

Thursday, July 1st-
10:30 am - Baby/Toddler Storytime- Come for a visit and enjoy songs,
stories and rhymes with your little one.
