From The Director

As we enjoy the change of seasons, it is always a pleasure to join the community in welcoming back our seasonal residents and visitors. Visit your friendly library staff soon and learn about the exciting programs and services at your library.

Remember to capture your favorite Island moments and scenery through your camera lens. This is the third year that the library, in conjunction with the annual celebration of Della Hardman Day on Saturday, July 31, is sponsoring a photography contest to select images featuring Martha’s Vineyard that reflect Della’s legacy theme ~ “savor the moment.”

Photographs will be judged based on the artful representation of the “Savor the Moment” theme during all four seasons on the Island. The winning entries will be published in the Library Calendar for 2011. The deadline for submitting your photographs is May 29 at 4 PM. The entry form is available on our web site and at the library.

Library Director

A Message From The Library Director

Summer is behind us and what a summer it was! The use of the library increased again this year. During July and August more than twenty two thousand people visited the library, and 27,836 books, movies, music and other library materials were borrowed, or about 80 items per hour. Close to two thousand attended programs for children and adults at the library. Public computers, as well as Wi-Fi were also very popular.

The staff was very busy, and we could not have managed without the help from our volunteers. A big “thank you” to them for all the work they do to support their library. We are grateful to many individuals and organizations, such as Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Polar Bears, Black Dog Kids, Inc., the Pequot Hotel, who donated funds for library programs and materials. Community support for the library is very important as we strive to overcome the current economic challenges and continue to meet the community’s needs.

We are looking forward to your next visit. Many programs for all ages are planned, and the library offers a variety of valuable resources to help you save time and money. You can visit and use the “library calculator” to learn how much you can save by using your library.

Danguole Budris,
Library Director
