This June, the Somerset County Library System of New Jersey’s (SCLSNJ) Montgomery branch welcomed over 250 second graders from Orchard Hill Elementary School as they explored the Library as part of their Social Studies unit, ‘Our Community.’

Youth Services Librarian Natalie Ehnis provided a tour of the collections and students got a peek at the Library’s Sort-o-Matic in action. Youth Services Librarian Hannah Williams led storytime, reading “You’re Going To Love This Book” by John Jory and “The Book with No Pictures” by B.J. Novak.
