HOLLEY – A fresh new face at the Holley Community Free Library is helping to create new programming for the library’s youngest patrons.

Grace Azzolino, who received her master’s in library science degree last June, joined the Holley Community Free Library staff as children’s librarian Jan. 3.

“Things are going well,” she said of her new job. “I’m in the midst of coming up with new ideas.”

The creation of a children’s librarian position was made possible by a state grant obtained by Senator Robert Ortt, Library Director Sandra Shaw has said.

In addition to having a children’s librarian who can focus on children’s programming, the library will also start Saturday hours beginning Feb. 4.

Saturday hours will run from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. during the months of February through May, and September through December. The library will be closed on Saturdays in June, July and August.

Azzolino said Saturday, Feb. 4, is “Take a Child to the Library Day” and the library will celebrate with a special reception planned at 10 a.m. to initiate the new Saturday hours as well as welcome her as children’s librarian.  She said Senator Robert Ortt is expected to attend.

New weekday hours beginning Feb. 4 are Monday and Wednesday, 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m.; and Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Summer weekday hours will be Monday, Wednesday, Friday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 4 to 8 p.m.; and Tuesday and Thursday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
