About DayByDayNY

Click here to open DaybyDayNY.  DaybyDayNY is a website for young children and their families. It is part of the New York State Library early literacy initiative Ready to Read at New York Libraries.

Director's Note: "right click" on any of the links within the DaybyDay page to open it in a new tab.  I've discovered that the "back" arrow does not always allow you to return to the homepage. 

 Libraries are essential to Family Literacy. In New York State, libraries bridge the gap for those who may not have access to resources for a variety of reasons. Libraries educate the whole family by providing computer and internet access, materials such as books and music, access to health information, and interaction with staff that are skilled in programming to engage young children to learn.

The New York State Library hopes that families across New York State will use this interactive calendar to develop a love for books and learning that will last a lifetime. The calendar uses multimedia to enhance books, songs, and family health and bring these components to life.

College Applications and Community Service. What's the Connection?

As the percentage of high school graduates who attend colleges and universities increases each year the competition for acceptance into these institutions also increases.  The time to begin distinguishing yourself from thousands of other applicants is now!  Why not include community service on your application?  Community service is an effective account of your dedication to life-long learning, improving yourself and that of the area in which you live.  It enhances your desirability as an applicant by - not passively - but ACTIVELY demonstrating your commitment to succeed. 

 

The Morristown Public Library has community service opportunities  for students in 9th, 10th and 11th grade who are:

  • responsible
  • reliable
  • goal oriented
  • able to work independently
  • able to follow instructions
  • able to maintain a pleasant disposition with the public

Here's a great site for getting familiar with a college application

THE CAROL HUNT MEMORIAL FUND AUDIO COLLECTION

The library is honored to be the recipient of donations in memory of Carol Hunt, a wonderful patron, neighbor and friend.  When Carol lost her sight she turned to audio books, but she went through every title our little library owned very quickly.  With that and their generosity toward others in mind, her family has asked that we use the money received to update our audio collection.  The Board of Trustees and I are deeply happy to present 18 recently published New York Times Bestsellers:The Carol Hunt Memorial Fund Audio Collection.

FRAGILE PLANET WILDLIFE CENTER VISIT

Thank you for joining us at the library for a fabulous after-school family program with the Fragile Planet Wildlife Center. Tyler and Nick brought five exciting wild friends and spoke about each of the animals for about an hour. What a fun way to learn so much!

Bruce Dana joined us with his wonderful and generous photography talents, so be sure to grab a copy of North Country Now's next issue!

Thank you Tyler! Thank you Nick! Thank you Bruce!  And thank you to all who attended this fabulous program! Tyler told me that Morristown kids asked the best questions and also were very engaging, and I said, "I KNOW, RIGHT? MORRISTOWN ROCKS!"
