  • A message from Nicole Lane, Library Director
    Especially during the past two weeks I have used the Gardiner Library community for friendship, support and connection. Thank you for being there.
     
    The Gardiner Library staff continues to develop ways to connect and serve you while the library is closed. This newsletter includes links to programs we will now offer remotely as well as some excellent resources we wanted to share. I have enjoyed hearing from many of you and answering your questions.
     
    Please contact me anytime at nlane@rcls.org.

    Middle and high school students who enjoy writing poetry, short stories and graphic novels, join us as we launch our first online literary magazine.
     
    Submit work through email and fellow authors will share critiques, suggestions and compliments.

    Once there's enough material and we feel as a group it's ready to go, the magazine will be formatted and published from the library website.
     
    Contact Carolyn at cthorenz@rcls.org for more information.

  • Historical Miniature Gaming Club
     
    Even though the library's temporarily on hiatus, the games must go on! While we wait to battle Wings of Glory in person, here are some websites you may want to check out to keep that gaming spirit alive:
     
    www.vassalengine.org - build and play online adaptions of board and card games.
    www.juniorgeneral.org- templates to print out soldiers from a variety of eras and rules for different battles. 

    Contact cthorenz@rcls.org for tips on decorating basics and weekly emails on what the club has coming up.
