“Monday, Monday…”

(Now I can’t get The Mamas and The Papas out of my head.)
Coming up at the library this week:
“ABC, Music and Me” will end tomorrow, Jan.31. Or will it? Watch this space to see if this popular program for the youngest ones will return next month.
The return of the knitting group: we’ve tried it a couple of times and have had little interest, but here’s hoping the third time is the charm, as they say. I’m considering calling this “Mary Leonard’s Knitting Group”, in honor of Mary Hall Leonard, co-founder of the public library in Rochester. Her smiling portrait hangs on the east wall, and I’m sure she’d approve of ladies not being idle. “Idle hands are the devil’s plaything”, my grandmother used to say, and I’m sure MHL agrees. Join us Fridays at 2:00 for tea, cookies, and crafting.
Symphony Tales will be here on Saturday, Feb. 4 at 11:00 to present Scritch Scratch: A Perfect Match. The author will start by talking about how she came to write the book, then a cellist and a reader will preform the book. There will be a child-sized cello to try, and the author will sign copies of her book, which will be on sale for $10. Pre-registration is strongly required, and, as of this writing, there are 2 spots available. Call or drop by to register.
And finally, the Oscar nominations are in, and, as in the Golden Globes, several of the nominated movies are based on books. Here is a link from USA Today about this very thing. Over the weekend, Mr P and I saw The Way Back, based on the book The Long Walk. Incredible movie and highly recommended.
