Saxton’s Summer

Posted on: July 11th, 2018

We all know that summer is a busy time.  This is very true for globe trotting mice.  Saxton has already been on a couple of adventures and is planning more.  His friends are available in the Library for checking out and Lingo tickets are available to those who read to them.  If you want, take pictures of them on their travels too and we’ll try to post them!

In the meanwhile, watch for more Saxton travel updates and a special surprise for Saxton fans in the Fall!

A quick trip…

Not wanting to miss Summer Reading, but still wanting to visit the castle of Edinburgh,  Saxton made a quick trip to Scotland.

In January, our own Saxton Mouse formed a Bobsled team and headed to South Korea.  They won the gold and then spent some much deserved R&R seeing the sites and learning about Korean history.  Saxton reports he very much liked his trip to the Korean Folk Village located in Yongin, S. Korea. He made new friends, learned about shoe making and about Korean culture.  For the best views he climbed some trees and took rest.

 Saxton even got to sit in the Governor’s Chair —>

Saxton is extremely grateful to his host and translator, Jong Gil Lee.  He would never have been able to see the sights without his help.

Giving Opportunity

Posted on: April 26th, 2016

Do you remember the excitement you felt when you entered a library for the first time? The possibilities it offered seemed endless. In the words of Robert Putnam, “People may go to the library looking mainly for information, but they find each other there.” Our library is no different, readers discuss books and lives in various bookclubs, new moms connect at baby story-times, elderly people, often facing difficult life transitions, attend events and find that they make new friends, and knitters gather to teach and support one another.

We are fortunate that our Town and State have provided funding to repair, update and expand the Library building this year. Now the Board extends an invitation to all to become part of this project by providing the funds needed to improve the furnishings that will be used within the new and refurbished space.

Any and every contribution will be greatly appreciated. Please click here for a schedule of gifting opportunities and an easily printable form if you would like to select one or more of the gifting opportunities listed. A wall plaque to name contributors of amounts over $1,000 will be our way to thank you and recognize your support to the Library or to memorialize a loved one. Your contribution will help to make the space warm and inviting for our Community for many years to come. Thank you again,

Interlibrary Loan Going Strong!!

Posted on: July 28th, 2015

With the start of summer, the State of Connecticut officially closed down its ReQuest state wide catalog. We hope you haven’t really noticed! The Saxton B. Little Library along with most others in the state has continued to provide Inter-Library Loan Services. While the process might be taking a little longer, we have truly appreciated your patience and support and will continue to do our best to get you the things you are seeking!

For those who wish to still search other libraries’ catalogs, if you hover your mouse over the “LOGIN TO MY ACCOUNT” tab, you will see a drop down that reads: “Connecticut Library Catalogs” this is a link that will take you to SBL’s web page where you will find links to other catalogs in the area.
