MISSION: To educate, enrich and empower our community.



LIBRARY CLOSURES:
  • The library will be closed December 24-26 for Christmas.

DONATE VIA THE LITERACY TREE

Our Youth Librarians have made a wishlist in the form of ornaments. Pick an ornament off the tree across from the front desk and take it to the front desk to make your donation. Whatever is on the ornament is what the Librarians will purchase with your donation. What a fun way to impact a child's life this holiday season.

ANNUAL GIFT BASKET RAFFLE

Tickets are on sale now-December 18th

Purchase tickets at the front desk and drop them in the corresponding bin of the basket you'd like to win. Winners will be drawn on December 19th at 3 PM. Tickets are $1 for 1, $5 for 6 and $10 for 13. All proceeds directly benefit SSLDL.
 

CHANGES @ SSLDL

Stop in and check out some of the changes in Adult and Teen Departments! 
We have been working on making our library a little more user friendly and easier to use. We've made more space for seating and moved the help desk to open the space up more. The changes aren't done yet, but stop by to check out the progress.

LITERACY TIPS WITH MARY

Ms. Mary is our Literacy Specialist here at SSLDL!
LITERACY TIP: 
Rhyming is a great way to promote reading. Hearing the sounds words make is the first step to reading. In the nursery rhyme Row, Row, Row Your Boat…kids hear the rhyming words “stream” & “dream,” the smaller sound is “ream.”  Have fun playing further with this rhyme by substituting “row,” “tow,” “low.” Hearing smaller sounds in words will help your child decode as they begin to read.
