Rolling Hills Primary School Principal’s Blog – July, 2019

I would like to bring to your attention a very valuable; but often under-utilized summer resource, the Sussex County Library.

Don’t have a library card?

If you don’t have a library card, you can apply for one online and pick up your card on your first visit! The County Library is an excellent resource for books, movies, music and much much more.  Even if you cannot get to the library you can get a “digital pass” to access the “eLibrary” for eBooks, audiobooks, downloadable music, online magazines and research databases 24/7.

The local Dorothy Henry Branch in Vernon will be open:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 9:00am – 5:00pm

Tuesday: 12:00pm – 8pm
