All September long, when members of our community stop by MPL to sign-up for a new library card or renew an expired one, they’ll have the opportunity to spin the Prize Wheel at our First Floor Service Desk to win a fabulous prize. And here’s the best part—everyone’s a winner! Library Card Sign-Up Month is brought to you by the American Library Association and libraries nationwide. It’s a time when they all join together to remind parents, caregivers and students—pretty much everyone—that signing up for a library card is the first step towards academic achievement and lifelong learning.

Balkansky Community Room
With twenty-two years in America’s courts, Judge Charles Schudson knows the factors affecting judicial decision-making. Join Charles on Thursday, September 26 at 6 PM in MPL’s Balkansky Community Room for this fascinating presentation, based on his recently-published book, “Independence Corrupted: How America’s Judges Make their Decisions.” With scholarship and impassioned accounts of compelling cases, he brings readers behind the trial bench to see judges analyzing actual trials and sentencings—of abortion protesters, sex predators, murderers, white supremacists, and more. He opens the doors to appellate chambers to hear judges debating life and death, multimillion-dollar damages, and priceless civil rights. Judge Schudson exposes the personal, professional, and political pressures now threatening judicial integrity like never before. With attacks on judges intensifying, Independence Corrupted is essential for all citizens concerned about the survival of judicial independence.
