A New Face at the Circulation Desk

The Wallingford Public Library has just become more technologically advanced – and more child-friendly – with the installation of a self-checkout machine. The system, positioned with the intention of attracting lots of our smaller patrons, allows adults and children to check out books and other materials without having to wait in line at the checkout counter.

The computer will scan your library card and the bar codes of books and media, with onscreen directions in simple terms (in the language of your choice), and an accompanying instructional video.

Next time you’re in the library, ask a staff member to give you a quick introduction to the self-checkout system.

Holiday Closing

The Library will be closed on Monday, October 12th in observance of Columbus Day. Regular hours resume Tuesday, October 13th.

Cinema Club Presents: Hilary and Jackie

Tuesday, October 6th at 6:30 p.m. in the Community Room

The story of the brilliant concert cellist Jacqueline du Pre, seen from the perspectives of her sister Hilary and brother Piers. While Jackie gains international fame and fortune, she secretly longs for the stable, normal life and family her less famous sister, Hilary has built. Watson and Griffiths deliver impassioned, unforgettable performances as the two gifted sisters who are so close they can literally read each other's minds, and who share everything, even the love of the same man. The movie is an astoundingly rich and subtle exploration of sibling rivalry and the volcanic collisions of love and resentment, competitiveness and mutual dependence that determine their lives.

Discussion to follow movie. Refreshments will be served. Rated R.
