W ant to be a Winter Program Player?

If you  like to work with others,  enjoy performing, and are in   Grade 5, 6, 7, or 8, you can be a Winter Player.

We will rehearse poems, songs and perhaps a short play on Wed Feb 21 and Fri Feb 23 from 1:30 to 3PM. 
We will perform on Saturday, Feb 24 at 2:30PM for an audience of kids and their families who have come to a special Winter Storytime.
You won't have to memorize your part, just read from the script.

In order to participate, you must commit to coming to the library for all rehearsals, and be able to be here by 1:30PM on Saturday, Feb 24 for the 2:30PM show.

Sign up at the children's desk. Call 978 929-6655 for more information.

Award-winning author and cartoonist Mark Parisi will  introduce Marty Pants, his new series for middle grade readers.  

A combination of prose and cartoons, the book relates how Marty discovers a note suggesting an alien is watching him, something he can't ignore. Unfortunately, no one believes him, so it's up to Marty to save the world.
