Mary E. Bartlett Library Programs

Book Bash - Feb. 11
The Friends of the Library hold a Book Lovers Bash on Saturday, Feb. 11 from 10 a.m. to noon for all ages, with mocktails and book-themed snacks. For $5, enter a queue to go from table to table in “speed dating” style, to pick out a book. Choose from Young Adult or Adult-themed books, festively wrapped with a brief description. If you get to the end of the line without having chosen a book, a Friend will give a consolation prize book to take home. Some of the books will contain a surprise inside, like a gift card, but you won’t know which one until you make your selection. Younger children can browse the Basement Bookstore for books of their own, and there will be a few crafts to construct as well. There will also be a dedicated table to make a valentine for a military person overseas.

The Robert Frost Farm
Frost, one of the nation’s most acclaimed poets whose writings are said to be the epitome of New England.

A winner knows how much he still has to learn, even when considered an expert by others.
A loser wants to be considered an expert by others before he has learned enough to know how little he knows.
~ Sydney Harris ~
