LIBRARY NEWS for the TIMES OF SHREWSBURY, OCTOBER 2018

 

MANY THANKS to ELLY SPENSLEY MORIARTY for a wonderful presentation on the Vermont Archaeological Society’s project in West Haven, excavating ancient Abenaki sites. Elly’s enthusiasm and knowledge are inspiring; please go to the VAS web site to learn about their open house on September 29th!

 

MANY THANKS to JUDY KEANE who has created and maintains the garden in front of the Library. The marigolds are brilliant this time of year, and the thriving basil is there for the picking!

 

The BOOK, BAKE, and TAG SALE will be over by the time your Times comes out — it’s Saturday, September 22nd — but thanks in advance to everyone who donated time, energy, books, baked goods, and tag sale items, and purchased tables to make this a great fund-raiser for the Library. Hope to have seen you there!
