Bell Ringer's Cancelled / January Highlights

We sided with caution last evening and decided to cancel the Saxtons River Bell Ringer's program of holiday music on handbells. There is still a chance to hear them perform on Christmas Eve at the Saxtons River Congregational Church, 802-869-2340.

That's it for adult programs 2007 - BUT 2008 is just around the corner! We have several exciting programs happening in January, here are some highlights:

January 10 - 7pm The Vermont Humanities Council and The Springfield Library are sponsoring a 6 session book discussion series titled, "People and Other Animals". Discussions will be led by a Humanities Scholar and all the books are available on loan at the library. Attend one session or all six!

January 11 - 10:30am-11:30am a NEW discussion group begins at the library. The Friday Morning Pageturners is a short-story discussion group. Tell the non-bloggers about this one! We will meet the 2nd and 4th Friday of each month with a break during the summer months. Each story will be available at the Circulation Desk in the library. We will read and discuss a different story at each meeting. Come as often as you'd like! Knitters and handcrafters welcome.
