One of our goals at the library is to always strive to be the go-to place for residents to learn the tech skills they need for business, school and home. We are pleased to announce the pilot introduction of Treehouse, a new online resource for learning advanced tech skills such as coding, web design and app development. A.H. cardholders will be able to enroll in any of eight different tech tracks that can ultimately give the user the ability to create an online portfolio to show to potential employers.  Learn more about Treehouse here and get started today.

At the annual Volunteer Recognition Luncheon, funded by the Friends of the Library, we get an opportunity to express our thanks to our amazing volunteers. The luncheon is also a time for us to recognize volunteers for their many hours and years of service. Pictured above are some of the volunteers who received service awards for volunteering from 500 hours up to 14,500 hours and from 3 years to 30 years here at the library. Also pictured is our Volunteer of the Year, Mark Ostrand, who contributed 410 hours of service last year.
 
Our volunteers are hard at work all over the library, at the Senior Center and on the bookmobile. We can't thank them enough for the valuable services they provide to us and to everyone who uses the library.
