Late January 2023

Librarian's Corner

The new year often marks a time of looking forward, whether it be in anticipation of what’s in store, or in laying out plans to make things happen. For me, though, it’s a time of retrospection: looking back through all of the statistics from the past year in order to prepare for annual reports to the town and state library.


Featured Artist

Scott D. Evans is the Library's featured artist for January - March. Stop in during Library hours to check out Scott's exhibit. You can find more information on the Featured Artist page of the website.

Fun Friday

Join us on Friday, January 20 for Fun Friday! Feel free to come to any or all of the programs. We're looking for parents who would be willing to help out for any or all parts of the afternoon!

Matinée Café

New this year, the Matinée Café is a monthly movie showing for adults on one Saturday every month! Before and after each showing, there'll be a chance to have some light refreshment and chat, or talk about the movie.

The first Matinée Café will be held on Saturday, January 21st. The café will open at 2pm, and the movie will begin at 2:30. January's Movie is The Banshees of Inisherin (2022, R).

Don't know what to do with puzzles that are missing pieces? Let Amanda give you a few ideas! On Saturday, January 28th, from 10:30 - 12:30, Amanda will host a crafting workshop for nifty crafts using puzzle pieces. Please email Amanda at if you'd like to attend--seating is limited!

Library Groups

Tuesdays, 5-6:30pm: Yarn Arts. Drop in at the Library for our Yarn Arts Group at the upstairs table. Bring your latest knitting/crocheting project and hone your craft with others. If you're a beginner, come to watch others work and learn. Heck, even macramé would be okay!

Wednesdays, 2-4pm: Cribbage. Drop in at the Library for Cribbage! Boards and cards provided, but feel free to bring your own as well. Stop by and play the classic game with other folks. New players are always welcome to learn the ins and outs of the game.
