Upcoming Events...

We are thinking spring in spite of the calendar – all’s it takes are a few warm days and a muddy driveway. On Saturday, March 17th, wear your green and join us as we decorate cookies and listen to some Irish tunes. Just a reminder, on Saturdays we are open for three hours, from ten until one.

The new assortment of dvds from our cooperative has arrived and includes some great titles. These dvds will be available until the end of April.

The following is a “Heads Up” for our younger readers: Our Spring Reading Challenge will get underway next week. On March 21st, 22nd, and 24th to mark the official start of spring, children are invited to stop in, create a kite and check out our new assortment of spring picture books.

The BGM Ladies Knitting Society will meet next on Thursday, April 12th at 2 PM. Bring your projects for show and tell.

Home from Spring Training

Just back from a visit to Ft Meyers to see the Red Sox in their new spring training facility, JetBlue Park. The place is awesome! We took a tour, watched a morning practice, saw the Sox play Northeastern University in a very long game, and were there for the opening game on Sunday against Minnesota. The Sox look good - many old faces and lots of new ones too. I am looking forward to a fun season, their 100th!

Red Sox fans will enjoy checking out "Fenway 1912" by Glenn Stout which tells of how Fenway came to be and its remarkable first season. We also have "Fenway Park, The Centennial" which is filled with memories from the epic feats of Babe Ruth, Jimmie Foxx, and Ted Williams to the jubilation of the recent runs to the championship.

It's spring when we look forward to "Play ball!"
