Join us Saturday, February 6th for Take Your Child to the Library Day.   From 1:00-3:00 PM, we will have on-going Lego Club, decorate your own Lego guy pictures, a Sky High Challenge and other Lego fun.  We’ll also be playing Lego Bingo at 2:00 PM.


Take Your Child to the Library Day is an international initiative created to help raise community awareness about the importance of the library in the lives of children as well as a way to promote library programs and services to children and families.


Join the library for an upcoming tour of  COSTA DEL SOL, SPAIN, a wonderful trip for 10 days, November 2 – 11/15, 2016! This tour spends 8 nights at top rated first class hotels, 4 nights in SEVILLA and 4 nights in TORREMOLINOS!


SEVILLA, one of the most charming cities in Spain, lies on the banks of the Guadalquivir and is the birthplace of Flamenco dance. The city is known for its ornate Alcázar castle complex, built during the Moorish Almohad dynasty, and its 18th-century Plaza de Toros de la Real Maestranza bullring. The massive Gothic cathedral is the site of Christopher Columbus’s tomb and a famous minaret turned belltower, the Giralda.
TORREMOLINOS is a Mediterranean resort town just north of Malaga on southern Spain’s Costa del Sol, known for its sandy beaches, nightlife, dining and shopping!
Celtic Tours has come up with a winning type of trip, where you stay at only 2 hotels, so you’re not packing and unpacking with touring from those hubs, combining relaxation with exploration. Some sightseeing is included, but with some optional tours offered, you can be as active and a part of the group or free to explore on your own as you choose to be.


A portion of the proceeds will benefit our library.  Click the link below for a descriptive itinerary and information about a possible 4 night extension to Lisbon Portugal!

A HUGE Thank You to all the volunteers who came out on Saturday, January 16th to help us pack up our main room.  All of the books, the shelves, the patron computers, the circulation desk and lots of other sundry items have been removed from our main room so the contractors can get to work.


For the remainder of the renovation, we will be using the door to the far left of our main entrance.  This door is down the sidewalk from the entrance to the State Troopers. Follow the posted signs.  Books and DVD’s can still be dropped into the outside receptacles if they just need to be returned.  We will remain OPEN during the renovation.  However, we do not have access to most of our adult non-fiction collection.  We still have DVD’s, new books, adult fiction, large print, audio books,  young adult and children’s books available. We have two laptops available for patrons use and photocopying/printing is still available. Faxing is available on a limited basis.


Check out the photos below to see everything we accomplished on Saturday!

The Sand Lake Town Library will be closed Saturday, January 16 through Monday, January 18 for the Martin Luther King, Jr. weekend and to prepare for upcoming renovations to the main room.   On Saturday, January 16th volunteers will meet at the library to pack and store the main room.  We do plan to remain open during the renovations, but to do so we have to make some changes, the most noticeable being that we won’t be able to use our main entrance.  Instead, we will enter either by the Town Hall elevator or the door at the far end of the library (off of the sidewalk by the State Police).   We will also be doing some rearranging, so be sure to ask us where to find what you are looking for.


We are working to make sure that you will still be able to use the computers, print, and copy.   Services which may not be available during the renovation include faxing, though we are trying to make this available on a limited basis.


Thank you to everyone who has helped us get this far and to those who continue to provide assistance with this project.  We can’t wait to get started!  Please check our website, Facebook page, and the Advertiser for updates.
