Local Author Karen E. Olson To Speak

Unlike her fictional police reporter Annie Seymour, Karen E. Olson never found a body in her trunk or had to swim for her life across New Haven Harbor. A former reporter herself, Ms. Olson was born and raised in New Haven. Sacred Cows, her first novel in the Annie Seymour series, received the Mysterious Press Sara Ann Freed Memorial Award for a debut mystery novel. Currently a North Haven resident, Ms. Olson features a different area of New Haven in each of her books.

Join us on Thursday, November 13th at 7:00 pm for a lively presentation by Karen E. Olson. Shot Girl, her latest book, will be available for purchase and signing.

Holiday Closing

We Love You, Too

"Are libraries facing the same fate as video stores, hard copy newspapers and the big thick phonebook?" asked WTNH News Channel 8 on their blog. Imagine our joy when we discovered that numerous respondents used Wallingford Public Library as an example of the value of libraries as a whole.

"Come and see Wallingford's very recent library expansion - beautiful!"

"The Wallingford Library is so amazing that I swear I could live there."

"My little one loves getting books and reading them under the tree in the children's area. It would be a shame to lose any library and I am very glad that Wallingford chose to expand ours."

Thank you for being the best library patrons in the world.

Daylight Savings Time: Remember To Fall Back
