Our Friends of the Library group remains active and on the move. They have recently created another holiday wreath, thanks to the creativity of Jeannie Woodruff. On the wreath were hung many scratch-off lottery tickets. The wreath was raffled off in June, with the proceeds going into the ongoing fund for the needs of the library. Here is a picture of their April Thank-you Luncheon for the staff.
In April, we were treated to a workshop where we fashioned jewelry out of balloons! The most popular were flower bracelets and Spiderman bracelets. The instruction was led by our own Gwendy Matthews.
Summer reading for young people has begun. Our kick-off party was on June 11–We had a wonderful program presented by Animal Embassy of Stamford, CT. Various Animal Athletes were featured. Contact the library for more information about independent reading and programs throughout the summer. There will be a final party in August with prizes for those who read at least two books this summer!
Many people enjoyed the Men’s Collectibles Show, held here on March 5th. Fifteen men brought in their various collections for everyone to enjoy. Clayton Hager from Cornwall does a very nice job of advertising, and setting up the show! It’s a nice break for folks at the end of winter.
The Friends of the Library held their annual Holiday Boutique on Dec.5th. It was a great success!
The Friends meet at 4 PM on the first Tuesday of the month. All are welcome!
Please call ahead on icy and snowy days. Our schedule is not always the same as the schools.
