Email addresses wanted!
The library is trying to update our patron’s information with email addresses. If we have your email address, you will be sent an email notifying you of upcoming due dates on your checked out items and then an overdue notice once an item has been out too long. Please let us know your email address next time you come in. This will help you keep track of your checked out items and when they are due.
Museum Pass available
Passes are available for The Clark, MASS MoCA, the Iroquois Museum, and the USS Slater.
Art In The Library
The current art display is titled “Homeschool Art Display”. This display features the artworks of three different homeschooling families: the Kellys, the Crockers, and the Whelans. The children used many different art forms to express themselves. The homeschoolers say,”We hope this display inspires others to use their library’s resources to express themselves through art. Libraries have many art books and magazines to spark ideas and many libraries offer art classes throughout the year.”
The participants are: Charlotte and Jack Crocker, Emmet and Quinn Kelly, Hickory and Vivian and Ronan Whelan
Any interested artists, who have artwork or photographs that they would like to display at the library, can call the library at 658-2927. We have wall space to display your art and would love to hear from you. There is no charge to display it here.
Book Discussion Group
The group meets at 7:00 P.M. on the second Wednesday of each month from September through June. NEXT BOOK CLUB: A Single Shard by Linda Sue Park on October 14th at 7 PM.
The books being discussed are available from the Library so you can read them prior to the meeting. New members are always welcome to join. Please join us even if you are only able to come once in a while or just want to come for the books in which you are interested.
