Update: Library Children's Room Re-Opened, Annual Library Open House Dec 11th

Thanks to everyone who has been waiting patiently during our recent heating system construction project! The library's children's room is put back together, the heat is on and the room is again open every day during regular library hours. Parents please note: while work in the children's room is finished, other areas of the library do remain under construction; all children should be directly supervised near any unfinished work areas.

Families with pre-schoolers wishing to attend Wednesday morning story times: please visit the library next Wednesday, November 25th at 10 am for a special Thanksgiving Storytime, Thankful Pilgrims. In addition to storytime activities, we'll also be asking for feedback from parents concerning future storytime program scheduling.

All city of Boscobel offices and the  library will be closed Thanksgiving Day 11/26 and the day after Thanksgiving 11/27.

Change of Date! The next meeting of the Boscobel Library's adult bookclub, Frieda's Readers will take place Dec 1st at 7pm in the library reading room. We'll be discussing The Girls of Atomic City: The Untold Story of the Women Who Helped Win World War II by Denise Kiernan. Copies of the book can be ordered at the library for anyone who would like to join in the discussion. Everyone is welcome!

Mark your calendars: Annual Library Open House will take place Friday, Dec 11th from 10 to 5 pm during regular library hours. Curious to see the work that's been done in our building? We'll be giving tours. Also on display will be two 3-D printers made available though a LSTA Makerspace Grant. Hear all about the cool kits we'll be receiving as part of this grant, learn about what we've accomplished this year and what's planned for next and enjoy holiday snacks and other refreshments.

Coming Soon: We'll once again be setting up our SAD Light Station to bring a bit of sunshine to folks who are missing the long sunny days of summer. SAD (seasonal affective disorder) lights are frequently used in cafe setting in far northern countries to help people cope with the winter blues and to feel more energized.
