snowy days

February and March can seem so gloomy — spring seems so close, yet so far away! This is the perfect time of year to spend some extra time at your library, getting to know it better.

  • Tomorrow (Sat. Feb. 21) is Friends Donation Day. Friends volunteers will be available from 10-2 to take your gently-used books, audiobooks and movies. They’ll keep what they can for the Friends Book Sale (now open on the 2nd floor of the library!), and proceeds will be used to benefit the library’s collection and programs.
  • Tomorrow is also the 2nd of our 3 Winter Science Workshops. Students ages 6-12 are invited to attend and enjoy hands-on science experiments as they learn more about space! For more information see the library’s home page.
  • Next week is our monthly Book Discussion Group meeting — The Yiddish Policemen’s Union by Michael Chabon was our pick for the month. Next month’s pick is Mistress of the Art of Death by Ariana Franklin.
  • If you’re a gardener anticipating planting time, don’t forget that we have an extensive collection of books about plants, landscaping, vegetable gardening, and other related topics to help you plan.
  • Last but not least, our winter story times are a great way to have fun with little ones. We’ve added a Saturday story time for families who might not be able to make it during the week. See the full schedule on-line!
