BOLO or “be on the lookout” for our Book Art award-winning Hedgehogs on display at Shaker MillBooks, 3 Depot Street. Many thanks to proprietor Eric Wilska for showcasing our young patrons’ creations. After you look in the window, be sure to visit inside the store. Shaker Mill Books is not only the world’s largest provider of local authors and history, but serves as our “go to” source for locating hard-to-find books. If you can’t find a book in the CWMARS system, please try Shakermillbooks.com before going to Amazon!
Trustees Front Entrance Beautification Project!
The next time you visit the new Book Drop in front of Town Hall, you may notice activity at the adjacent planting bed. We're replacing ummer annuals with native sustainable perennials in a permaculture design. Excitement won’t begin ‘til spring but you may view the finished garden plan on display inside the library.
Also, we have a new bike rack courtesy of an anonymous donor. After the old broken rack was removed, a group of young library patrons was seen parking bikes in that empty spot. Kudos to these young riders for their polite behavior!
Computer classes, including Windows 8 and introductory classes, continue through the fall. Call or stop at the library to sign up.
