FREEDOMLAND AMUSEMENT PARK
If you were unable to attend our recent program on Freedomland, an amusement park located in the Bronx in the early 1960’s, you may enjoy a video of the program. The visual quality is not great, the program was being recorded from a laptop tucked in the corner of the room, but the sound is clear and Mike Virgintino is a great speaker with lots of interesting stories.

The local Comcast Station recently completed a short video on Reed Library, Know Your Local Library. Take a look!

Libraries recognize the need to provide a safe environment for kids to browse library materials. Just as the children’s section of the physical library has its own place, the same experience is now available in the digital collection for kids eBooks and audiobooks. Browsing can be done by subject, reading level or interest level. Check out the Kid’s eReading Room.
