Mrs. Bugyi is Retiring!

Leave a Comment

Did you receive your coloring sheet, yet?  Please ask Mrs. Stutzman or Miss Z.    We are very sad to announce that after 16 years working at the North Tonawanda Public LibraryMrs. Bugyi is planning to retire in June, 2019.  We would like to designate the month of May  as Mrs. Bugyi month in her honor.  If you have known Mrs. Bugyi, you know that she doesn’t want a lot of attention drawn to her, but we feel that we can’t let her leave without making a fuss!  So if you have interacted with Mrs. Bugyi, either as a patron, or in Preschool Story Hour, American Girl Club, Bedtime Story Fun, or many of the other incredibly fun programs that she has planned over the years, maybe just stop by for a visit, send a little card of thanks, or even just call her at the library.  We will also have coloring sheets available in April and May to decorate the Children’s Room. We’d like to make it a memorable sendoff for her!  If you know of any patron who might not receive this message, pass the word!  As her schedule differs from week to week, Please call the library, and speak to either Mrs. Stutzman or Miss Zaciewski if you will be visiting.

Teens Read Down Your Fines!

Leave a Comment

Don’t let a fine on your library card keep you from checking out items you want.  Now you can read away your fines!  One half hour of reading equals $1.00 credit towards your fine.  Check in at the reference desk to note the start time, find a place to read, then let the librarian know when you are done.  It’s that simple.  You can read whatever you want.  The only rule is that you must read in the library, reading at home doesn’t count.  If you have a fine on your card, this is your chance to do something about it!
