A few weeks ago, we observed the sad anniversary of the beginning of the pandemic by creating an online Gratitude Wall.

What beautiful weather we’ve had recently! When I think of spring, I always think about breaking out my old bicycle and taking it for a ride.

As spring begins its customary slow awakening, and days get longer and warmer, nature is beginning to wake up again after a long winter. So, too, with our little library.

This past Tuesday was Read Across America Day, which is scheduled every year to coincide with the birthday of the Babe Ruth of children’s authors, Theodore Seuss Geisel, known the world over as Dr.

Last Monday, I opened our outside dropbox and pulled out all of the library materials that were returned over the weekend, and found something that I wasn’t expecting: vinyl record albums.

Normally, we would have had our big I Love My Library Gala this past weekend, which is an event that I always look forward to and I know that many of you do too.

Things seem to be getting a bit better with the coronavirus. In Albany County, positive test rates are at their lowest since November, which is great!

At the end of last year, we here at the Altamont Free Library were getting nervous.

Do you love to read? Do you love talking about the things you’ve read?
