Celebrate National Poetry Month with Sarah Rose Nordgren!

Sarah Rose Nordgren will read and discuss her poetry at the Gardner-Harvey Library on Wednesday, April 1, from 4:00pm-5:00pm.

Sarah, a Visiting Assistant Professor of English on the Middletown campus, is a widely-published poet. Her poetry collection Best Bones was published in 2014 by the University of Pittsburgh Press and was the winner of the Agnes Lynch Starrett Poetry Prize.

The poems of Best Bones allude to landscapes of history, fable, and childhood myth, yet are fraught with modern day predicaments that create an atmosphere at once familiar and strange, playful and haunted, and verging on disaster. With imaginative intelligence, Nordgren maintains a snow-globe control of the whole scene.

Please join us for the reading.  Light refreshments will be served.

Create your own miniature world: Terrarium building at the library

Live plants, fake plants, rocks, miniatures, all can be used to build your own terrarium.  Join us in the library and create your own miniature world.  

The workshop will be held on Wednesday, April 8 from 3:00-4:00 in the Gardner-Harvey Library Makerspace.

The event is free and open to all.  Please RSVP at to ensure we have enough supplies.  

If you have any glassware or small items you would like to use with your terrarium, please feel free to bring them along.

Library materials added in February

To bring you up to date on what has recently been added to the collection, a new materials list is now available that reflects additions during December. We added 69 books, DVDs, and other items during that time, thanks to your selections and suggestions. The list is sorted by call number, with items grouped roughly by subject area.  

This tag will show you all of the prior lists of new materials, in reverse chronological order.  We have purchased 714 items for the collection since July 2014.  

If you have a suggestion of something to order, please use our "Tell GHL to Buy It" form, email Jennifer Hicks or one of our other staff members, or drop by the library with your request.  

Thanks again for keeping our collection vibrant and your information needs met!
