At the Library for February 13th, 2018

Updated 2018/02/11



Penrose Halson tells the amazing true story of how two 24-year-olds operated a surprisingly successful match-making service during the Second World War in ‘The Marriage Bureau.’


A young woman navigates her daily existence within the ever-tightening spiral of her own thoughts in John Green’s long awaited ‘Turtles All the Way Down.’


Preschool Story Time is this Wednesday at 11:00 am, 1:15 pm, & 6:30 pm, and Toddler Story Time is 10:00 and 11:00 am. Both will be all about “Love”.  Baby Laptime Thursday at 10 am.

Please note there is always a Wednesday evening Story Time at 6:30 pm for ages 3 to 9 and their caregivers. Perfect way to unwind.

Stop by the Manual Training School (adjacent to the Library) and check out the Friends’ Audio Visual & Magazine Sale. There’s a great selection of magazines, DVDs, CDs, & audiobooks as well as books on cooking, comedy, & history. Harlequins, book bundles and Children’s picture books and readers are for sale also.  Friends’ members may attend on Friday, Feb. 16th from 5 pm to 7 pm.  Everyone is welcome on Saturday, Feb. 17th from 9 am to 4 pm.
