A WRITERS’ WORKSHOP at SHREWSBURY LIBRARY
FIRST MEETING, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 16th from 4 to 5:30 p.m.

LIBRARY NEWS DECEMBER 2019
We remember long-time Trustee and supporter NANCY SPENCER, who died last month in South Burlington. Please see the tribute elsewhere in this issue.
MANY THANKS to JUDY EMERICK for sharing her expertise last month on how to research genealogy for free on line. The program was well-attended and well-received, generating on-going interest. A future update may be in order!
WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY: When the weather is icy or snowy, please call the Library to see if we’re open: 492-3410. Shrewsbury’s Road Crew does a great job, but some library staffers have treacherous driveways; we don’t expect them (or patrons) to come in under risky conditions!
TRUSTEES will not meet on December 10th, taking a break after the Cookie Share & Silent Auction! However, the Program Committee WILL meet that night at 7 p.m. If you have ideas for Library programs, please contact: Joan: email@example.com; or Dianne Barclay: firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com.
Saturday, December 7 @ 7pm: COOKIE SHARE & SILENT AUCTION! Start the Holiday Season off right; please see our ad elsewhere in this issue. THANKS in advance to all the donors and patrons (of auction items and cookies); staffers (especially Lisa, Gail, Donna, and Marge); and attendees who make this one of our favorite occasions of the year!
Wednesday, December 4 from 7-9 pm: KNIT ALONG with MEG MELLOR: Finishing up socks for Christmas in this popular project!
Sunday, January 19 @ 4 pm: FAMOUS BOOKS BOOK CLUB: These Truths by Jill Lepore: an ambitious and revelatory history of this country by a prominent
scholar. We’ll spend three months on this; it’s a long book, but an engaging read.
Books are available at the Library; please contact Joan, 492-3550, if you need one.
Sunday, January 26 @ 4 pm: SCIENCE BOOK CLUB: Ivory Vikings: The Mystery of the Most Famous Chessmen in the World and the Woman Who Made Them by Nancy Marie Brown. Books will be available at the Library.
