New Year, New Librarian!

We are pleased to announce that after the departure of the head librarian a few months ago the Carroll Gardens Library welcomes Molly Pudner, the Neighborhood Library Services.  Molly was formerly at the Eastern Parkway branch.  We'll have an interview and more information about her soon. Say hello when you stop by the library!

There is a lot happening at the library including the continuing of the children's French film series on the first Fridays of each month at 3:45 downstairs.

We'll also be starting a new English language movie series - the first showing is the wonderful animated movie "Brave" which will also be at 3:45 on Friday, February 15.  Also, Kathleen Henderson will be coming to the library regularly on the last Monday of each month from 2 PM-5PM to do crafts - she'll be there this coming Monday, January 28.

Happy New Year everyone!

Friends of the Carroll Gardens Library wishes everyone a very happy new year.  We're looking forward to continuing to be part of the Carroll Gardens library and community in 2013 and seeing you all there.  Here is a good resolution for the new year and all year:  Come to the library more often to read, borrow books, enjoy the programs, watch a movie and see your neighbors!

We  haven't done quotes for awhile, but here are some great ones to start off the new year right:

"For last year's words belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice.
And to make an end is to make a beginning."
- T.S. Eliot, "Little Gidding"

"Yesterday, everybody smoked his last cigar, took his last drink and swore his last oath. Today, we are a pious and exemplary community. Thirty days from now, we shall have cast our reformation to the winds and gone to cutting our ancient shortcomings considerably shorter than ever."
- Mark Twain

Happy New Year everyone!
