Welcome to Sage Commons! Named in honor of the Library’s original benefactor, Margaret Slocum Sage, these pages highlight useful and/or interesting information and entertainment from various online and off-line sources…especially local sources. Over time, we hope to make available a wide variety of information from local “experts.” These experts may include your friends, neighbors, relatives, or even you. So be sure to let us know if you have an area of expertise that you would like to share here in Sage Commons.
Please be aware that the opinions expressed in the material we share here are not necessarily those of the John Jermain Memorial Library. Often, though, you will find them to be interesting, even fascinating points of view.
Most of all, we hope that Sage Commons, will be a two-way dialog between the library staff and the public. We are anxious to hear what you have to say about the items we share, and the issues they address, and hope you will share your thoughts in the comments area here or on Facebook. In this regard, please feel free to link to other videos or web-based articles on related topics in your comments, or on our Facebook wall.
One caveat is necessary, however. Please be aware that this blog and our Facebook, YouTube, and Flickr pages are intended to provide a limited (or designated) public forum to facilitate the sharing of ideas, opinions and information about library-related subjects and issues. Comments are moderated by library staff and the library reserves the right to remove comments that are unlawful or off topic.
