Inside Starr Library Rhinebeck NY

I know that in the age of internet, we conduct most of our information search online, however keep the library in mind as a valuable resource.  I have found that there are times I can't find something online but will find an old book in the library that provides the needed information.

Yes the library is a resource not to be overlooked, some of the other services include books on tape, you can take out movies and CD's.  The neat thing to remember is that if your local library does not have a particular item they can get it from another library and you can pick up the item at your local library.

Jennifer, I have to agree with Carol up there and seeing library expansion in this time and age seems very odd, yet quite encouraging. As a former educator (and reading specialist) I am always encouraged and inspired by communities that value libraries.

That looks like a great library.  One of my favorite places to be when the weather is bad is at the library -- Nice photos -- and I am sure that people will enjoy the new and improved space.

Paddy - Thanks, I just read your blog on your library and loved it.

Kimberly - When I was younger I was a bookworm, it was the library or spending my last dollar in a bookstore.

Kim with the Internet many have forgotten about this great resource.

Gary - It is great that this community has had such a resource for so long.

George - Today's libraries are keeping up with the times.  My son-in-law love to get the movies and dvds

Carol -If you feel like watching an old black and white movie you might just find it at your local library.
