Our Hours Have Changed!

Our hours have changed – Fall/Winter hours are now in effect – We are open Wednesdays from 2 until 6, Thursdays from 10 until 12 and 2 until 6, and Saturdays from 10 until 1. We hope that this makes it easier for everyone to drop by the library.

Attention all people ages 8 to 12 who like pizza, reading and fun… We have a special day planned towards the end of October – October 29th from 4 until 5:30 to be exact – when we will host our very first ‘Read-a-Thon’. We will do some reading, eat some pizza, and perhaps play a game. Space is limited so… if you would like to come please let us know ASAP!

Cool days, crisp apples, colorful leaves – the best part of living in New England for many of us! Those who agree might like to check out a fun link – - for a great list of activities just right for the season. Children might like to check out our fall picture books here at the library.

New issues of Ranger Rick and National Wildlife (Thank you Joy!) have just arrived. Ranger Rick has a neat article about beavers with lots of pictures. National Wildlife has many interesting articles including one on wild turkeys (they are quite tasty!) and another on wildflowers to attract migrating butterflies and hummingbirds.

The Ladies Knitting Society and Yarn Club will meet on Thursday, October 13th at 2 pm. We are making winter hats for our school children and can use some help. We have patterns and yarn available at the library. The cold temperatures are coming so we aim to be ready!

The American Library Association and public libraries around the country have celebrated Library Card Sign-UP Month every September since 1987. Our library is taking part by reminding our community that the return on your library investment is huge when you take advantage of our services and resources. We offer books, magazines, dvds, videos, downloadable audio and ebooks, inter-library loans, and an internet based foreign language program.

We also want to remind parents that a library card is a very important school supply and the smartest card a student can own! If your child is in first grade or more, come in with them and get them a library card and learn how we can help your student

Library cards need to be renewed every two years. Is your library card up-to-date???

Upcoming Events: The Byron G Merrill Knitting Society and Yarn Club will meet for tea and conversation on THURSDAY, October 13th, at 2 PM –Please notice the change in day - all are welcome!
