Calling all moms, dads, grandparents and caregivers, here comes Spring Preschool Storytime a! Beginning February 22nd, join us every Wednesday morning at the library from 10:15 to 10:45 to learn, laugh, read sing and grow! Our children's librarian Gina Schmitz will share an amazing story each week about everything from All Kinds of Elephants to Little Red Wagons.

The Boscobel library's adult book club, "Frieda's Readers" will meet this coming Tuesday evening at 7pm in the library reading room. This lively discussion group will be talking this month about B.A. Shapiro's novel The Muralist,a compelling story about American WPA artists and their country's reluctance to get involved in the Second World War during a time when refugees were fleeing Europe to escape Hitler's burgeoning juggernaut, " Alizee Benoit, an American painter working for the Works Progress Administration (WPA), vanishes in New York City in 1940 amid personal and political turmoil. No one knows what happened to her. Not her Jewish family living in German-occupied France. Not her artistic patron and political compatriot, Eleanor Roosevelt. Not her close-knit group of friends, including Mark Rothko, Jackson Pollock, and Lee Krasner. And, some seventy years later, not her great-niece, Danielle Abrams, who while working at an auction house uncovers enigmatic paintings hidden behind recently found works by those now famous Abstract Expressionist artists."

The club is open to the public and copies of this month's book can be picked up at the library beforehand. Come and enjoy some good company, lots of laughs and smart conversation, all are welcome!.
