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,  Hildene The Lincoln Family Home, the Iroquois Museum, and the USS Slater.

Art In The Library

The current artist, Gloria Houlne, says, “As an abstract multi-media artist, I enjoy exploring my ever changing inner landscape and its interaction with experimental uses of technique and medium.” Her art has become therapy, meditation, and joyful expression.

Stop in and see her colorful artwork displayed here at the library.

The library also has Ann Lindsay jewelry for sale (to benefit the library).

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: Jackie Robinson by Arnold Rampersad on Wednesday, September 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.
