Friends update

The Friends held their Annual Meeting last Thursday, 10/23 and elected a new board.  The Board members are:

Linda Medeiros and Gail Roberts, Co-Chairs

Lisa Walbridge, Vice-Chair

Stephanie Underhill, Secretary

John Fuller, Treasurer

Members voted their funding support for the preschool story times, Cafe Parlez, Equal Access programs, summer reading program, and other programs.  The next event is the Holiday Open House on December 6.  Donations of items for the Silent Auction are being sought.  Unfortunately, due to the changeover in Board members, the Friends will not be selling wreaths, cyclamen, poinsettias, or Christmas trees as in the past.  We will be having the Bake Sale, and Silent Auction, with refreshments, and holiday stories at 10:30 and 11:30.  Earth Sisters will be selling their handmande lotions, soaps, and candles, with a portion of the proceeds to benefit the Friends.  Stop on by!

Sit and Stitch update

Five knitters dropped by this past Monday (Oct. 6) for the rebirth of the knitting group.  While we were knitting away, another woman came by to tell the group about the Prayer Shawl Project for a local hospice program.  The project is to knit a shawl for the comfort of a patient in hospice or his/her family.  She left off instructions and bags of yarn, so, if this sounds like a project that you’d be interested in, stop by my office.  The shawl instructions look easy, even for a beginner like me, and there are crochet instructions, too.  The Knitting Group will meet again Oct. 20 (the library’s closed Oct. 13 for Columbus Day).  Miriam from “The Wool Patch” yarn shop in Middleboro will be there, presenting new yarns and patterns.
