At the Library for December 22, 2015.

Updated 2015/12/21

In 1692 the Massachusetts Bay Colony executed 14 women, 5 men and two dogs for witchcraft. As Stacey Stiff explains in her latest book ‘The Witches, Salem 1692,’ there was no cauldron, no spells, no magic, and no one burned at the stake, but a true story equally as fascinating.

A little more cheery is ‘Dora’s Christmas Carol Adventure’—new in juvenile DVDs.

Please note our holiday hours are as follows:
December 24th, 9 to 3 pm.
December 25th – 28th Closed
December 29th – 30th – 9 to 8pm.
December 31st, 9 to 3 pm.
January 1st, Closed.
January 2nd – regular hours resume.

Preschool Story Time will resume on January 6th, 2016.

FOOD FOR FINES: For the entire month of December, the Library will be accepting donations of nonperishable food as payment for overdue fines. One item will be worth one dollar of fines. Any canned or boxed nonperishable food items will be accepted. All donations will be delivered to the food bank throughout the holiday season. This is a great way to get rid of those pesky overdue fines while helping others in need.
