Our Regional Libraries are now open for Express Visits! Know before you go.
And we still offer contactless pickup and return with Books on the Go!

The East Regional Library will remain closed today (1/25) due to two positive COVID cases among library staff. We will use this time for cleaning and ensuring the rest of the staff is well. We will provide updates on reopening when more information is available.

Some notices were not sent. Check your account for due dates (but we are still fine free)!

display_descriptionThe first baby arrived on the mail plane, the second two on the ferry, the fourth asleep on a pile of nets, smelling of mackerel. Who were the babies? Where did they come from? The notes left with them said 'Please keep this baby safe' and 'Please give my child shelter.' Only the librarian can take them home, and the library is where they grow up. The whole island helps to raise them. The fisherman teaches them to cast from the pier, the ferryman shows them charts of the sea, and from the harbormaster they learn to recognize birds. 'Who are you?' other children ask. 'Why don't you look alike?' The librarian gathers them in her arms. 'Families don't always look alike,' she says. "And where we're going is more important than where we came from.' This ... fairytale contains a message of acceptance that is particularly significant for our time.
