A Word From Sophia Saccente '22
As the school year comes to a close, I find myself looking back on my time in the library this past year.  The chair behind the circulation desk has become like a second home to me, although sitting there took some getting used to.  Chairs as tall as those aren't made for people as short as me, and I have almost fallen off more than once.  From my perch behind the desk, I have been able to get to know many people through the goings-on at the library.  How a person wrestles with the printer reveals a lot about their character.  I'll treasure many of these memories as I go on to study library science this coming Fall.  I hope one day to find another circulation desk to call home, but I'll never forget this one.

An Appreciation
The library staff would like to thank our 40 library and audio-visual work study students for all of their hard work and dedication  this past year, making the library the welcoming place that it is.  Without their efforts, the library would be very different.  Thanks for the sense of community and wonder you bring to our library.  And, to our 11 graduating library work study students, we wish you many fine adventures, large and small, in the years ahead.  We will miss you.  Thank you all!

New Library Signage
Maddy Stevens has been helping us redesign our library signage this term.  You've probably noticed some prototypes up around the library.  We are still experimenting with colors and wording.  If you haven't already, stop on in and take a look.  Let us know at the Circulation Desk what your think of the signs. 
  • Are they clear? 
  • Does the wording make sense?
  • Are we missing anything you'd like to know?
  • Do you have any particular suggestions?
New to Thorndike
These books have recently been added to our collection.  We are always happy to get 
your suggestions.  The purchase of books for our Juvenile Collection is made possible by a generous gift from two alum.

Summer at Thorndike

Yes!  We'll be open and would love to see you.  Come sit on the deck in one of our Adirondack-style chairs  for a peaceful afternoon enjoying a good book.  Or, do you need to escape the heat?  Come do some work in our air-conditioned stacks.  Want to ease your mind with a puzzle to work on?  Come say "Hi" and check out one of our puzzles. If you are a graduating senior but are around for the summer, know that you are still eligible to check out books.   If you are in a place far away, we'd still like to hear from you so drop a line and let us know what you are up to.  Have a wonderful summer everyone!

Commencement 30 years ago

With commencement coming at the end of the week, we thought it would be fitting to look back at the graduation ceremony of 1982, thirty years ago. Pictured is the graduating class standing in front of the old shrine. For more information, check out the digital archives.
