Join us Sunday, April 28 2 p.m.
On Sunday, April 28, at 2 p.m., South Windsor will once again celebrate Poetry Day.  This year, we will be honored with readings by CT's Poet Laureate Emeritus, Rennie McQuilkin, along with eight municipal Poets Laureate: Joan Hoffman (Canton), Jim Scrimgeour (New Milford), Alexandrina Sergio (Glastonbury), Tarn Granucci (Wallingford), Kathy Carle (Seabury, Bloomfield), Frederick Knowles (Hartford), Ginny Connors (West Hartford), and Davyne Verstandig (Washington). South Windsor's Poet Laureate Charlie Margolis will host this celebration of the spoken word, which will also include the poetic music of Hungrytown, an internationally touring folk duo.  The South Windsor Human Relations Commission will assist with "Sundaes on Sunday," a sweet treat to end the afternoon.
Attention Jedi Masters!
A Star Wars Trivia Event!
If you have a holocron's wealth of knowledge on that galaxy far, far away, join us for an intense, but fun, session of Star Wars trivia on May 4th at 2pm. Registration is required; teams are encouraged, but individuals are welcome. Due to the difficulty of some of the questions (what's the difference between a Talz and a Chadra-Fan?), participants must be at least 18 years of age. Please call 860-644-5404 to register.

Please "Friend" and/or "Follow" us on our new Facebook and Twitter pages. Just search for South Windsor Library after you log in.

For your convenience, the library now has a charging station for your mobile devices. There are five bays that can be individually locked and unlocked by a code known only by you. You just need to have your power cable with you.  It can also be used as a safe place to keep your laptop if you need to leave the library for a short time.   Ask at the Information Desk for instructions.
Coming to See an Exhibit at the Library? Don't be disappointed!
The Library is glad to provide many exhibit spaces used to display the talents of members of our community.  Most exhibits are here for a full calendar month. 
During the school year in particular, our meeting rooms are also used for gatherings of local organizations (as well as Library programs).  These "one-time events" are often scheduled with very little notice and are not part of the Library's monthly calendar.
If you are coming to see an exhibit in a Library meeting room, please call us at 860-644-1541 to be sure the room will not be in use when you arrive.
