Come One, Come All, Celebrate @ Your Library December 19th!


Come one, come all, to the Boscobel Public Library's annual Open House Celebration Friday December 19th. This public event is for everyone in the community to stop by the library, enjoy a sweet treat, tour the library, go on a prize-winning scavenger hunt and learn more about what's planned for 2015, including our 1000 Books Before Kindergarten grant and Makerspace Lab Project, as well as a preview of 2015's Summer Library Program, Superheros!. We're also going to see some nifty changes in our online library account and catalog service as well as updates to our beautiful building. Public Open House takes place all day, 10:00AM- 5:00PM  during regular library hours. We hope to see you then!

Join us next Tuesday evening Dec 16th for  the library's adult book club, Frieda's Readers  We'll be enjoying nancy Thayer's A Nantucket Christmas, . "Known for her heartwarming observations of family life, New York Times bestselling author Nancy Thayer showcases her beloved Nantucket’s snowy off-season in this emotionally gratifying and  entertaining story, a wonderful tale to remind us that this is the season of miracles. Before the gifts are unwrapped, surprise visitors appear, and holiday joy comes to all, both naughty and nice."  Copies of the book are available for checkout at the library. Anyone can come to join in the bookclub discussions, there's no cost to attend and there's something for everyone to enjoy. Bookclub meets the third Tuesday of each month at 7pm in the library reading room.
