At the Library for April 24th, 2018.

Updated 2018/04/24

‘Never Rest On Your Ores’ is the insightful story of how TEK was built from the ground up, written by TEK’s current chairman Norman B. Keevil.

In ‘Taking Toys Apart’ Kristin Fontichiaro gives younger readers a guide to what goes on inside electronic toys, and how taking them apart can help build problem solving skills.

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 “flowers!”. 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.

The Friends Garage Sale is coming. What could be more fun! It will be held on Sat. April 28th from 9 am to 3 pm in the Manual Training School adjacent to the Library. Come to the sale and find those hidden treasures!

Public donations are being accepted on Friday April 27 from 9 am to 4 pm. In the Manual Training School.
