You may have noticed that I haven’t posted a new Picture Books At The Library list is several weeks. The reason I haven’t is because my library was in the process of moving into a brand-new building and no new items, books or media, had been ordered or received for the collection during that time.
But now we are all settled into our beautiful, modern, two-story, built-from-the-ground up, completely new building, and ordering has resumed. Items that had been on hold at our vendors have been arriving, including picture books. That means I’ll be posting a list of shiny new picture books next Monday.
In the meantime, for your viewing pleasure, I’ve got pictures of the new Community Library of DeWitt & Jamesville to share with you.

The Library also features the Hive, our makerspace for all sorts of creative endeavors, several community rooms for group meetings and tutoring, a green roof with solar panels and plants (including chives, Angelina stonecrop, and Aizoon stonecrop), and a spacious, colorful children’s room with a gorgeous mural depicting the Erie Canal, done by local artists Elliott Mattice and Kathy Maio. Here’s one section of the three-piece mural:
If you’re ever in the neighborhood, stop by, say hi, and check out our new Library (and a few picture books, too)! 🙂
