Check out the status of the solar array we installed on our building in December 2012.
It gives a lot of information including how much energy is being produced by the array, and what is being saved in environmental impact.
Upper Hudson Library System Presents Annual Library Service Awards
Position Announcement: Library Director
The Brunswick Community Library is seeking an energetic and creative leader with a passionate commitment to public library service for the position of Library Director.
The Library Director reports to the Board of Trustees and holds primary responsibility for the overall operation and management of the Library. Duties include, but are not limited to; planning and implementation of library programs and services, fiscal oversight and budget management, supervision of library personnel, and management of the library facility. As an official representative of the library to the Brunswick Community, the Library Director demonstrates an enthusiasm for community engagement and establishes effective working relationships throughout the community.
Childrens, tween, and teen programs in UHLS libraries are now more accessible than ever! Libraries in Upper Hudson Library System have pooled their programs in one program calendar, available at http://events-ys.uhls.org/. Users can search by date, location, or age categories.
Public libraries offer scores of activities during summer months to interest kids and teens in reading and help them combat summer learning loss. Kids who dont read much over the summer can lose significant skills and return to school behind their peers. The joint program calendar makes finding a fun, free library event in UHLS libraries for children easy for parents.
