200 YEARS OF FREEDOM FROM SPAIN

We celebrate with Mexico their 200 years of their Independence day September 16, 1810 from Spain. The United States is enriched with the varieties and intertwinings of cultures since our existence. The Stratford Library is joining in this celebration with a display of books by Hispanic authors. Step out of your reading box and explore one of these books that transport you into the colorful Hispanic culture and excitement....

Copy, Paste, and Print!

 Does your child ever have a school report that requires a trip to the library? We just wanted to let you know that we're here for you. We have had a number of children in this past week asking for assistance.

Whenever your child has a school report that brings you to the library, we have the following recommendations:
 

-Please try to come at least three days in advance of the due date. While we love last minute chaos as much as anyone, it can't hurt to come in sooner. 

-Keep in mind that our computers will log off about ten minutes before we close, so what seems like an hour, is really only going to be about 45 minutes..

-Black and white copies are ten cents each and color costs 50 cents. Color copies will also require extra assistance on our part, so please plan accordingly with the time.

WE HAVE A WINNER!

By random drawing of all the adults who completed the 2010 Adult Summer Reading Program, ReaderNation, at the Stratford Branch Library, Yvette Gardner won the $50 gift card for Amazon.com. Yvette plans on using her card to purchase a book of couples' devotions that she saw in a bookstore for $24.99. The book, "Love Dare" by Alex and Stephen Kendrick, is a couple's daily devotional featured in the movie, "Fireproof".
