NEWS AND EVENTS

Events for Children:

WEE READ meets on Mondays at 10am in the Children’s Room. Story and small crafts to enjoy.

Events for Adults:

There are lots of new things to check out at the library. We now have exploration kits, thanks to a grant from Wild and Scenic Waterways. One kit contains small nets, observation boxes and a selection of Peterson guides to help you discover more about your environment. A large net can accompany this backpack, if you’d like. We also have a wildlife camera in a bear box which can be checked out for you to observe in a location where you might not want to spend the night. This tethers to a tree and snaps photos constantly, placing them on a chip which you can use with a computer.
The library also has a Kindle which patrons can use to enjoy books from the Commonwealth eBook Collection among other things. Ask at the desk.

Genealogy (every 1st Saturday, 10 am)

The Genealogy Drop-in will be meeting on October 7 at 10:00am. We are very loosely organized so don’t feel you have to commit to a club. If you are or want to research your ancestors or even find information about the town or your house, we can help you get going.

Book Club (every last Thursday, 7 pm).

The Book Club has embarked on a new subject. We will be traveling the world with mysteries this year. While we may diverge briefly from our tour, we will plan to visit many lands and times hand in hand with the best detectives in literature. Join us. We begin this month with Rex Stout’s Nero Wolfe in The League of Frightened Men. We will discuss this on Thursday, November 30 at 7:00pm.
