The library will be closed Monday, October 9th for the Columbus Day Holiday. I’m sorry that this was overlooked in our schedule of holidays.
Fifth Annual Art Exhibit & Sale
Last weekend was just perfect for the library’s Fifth Annual Art Exhibit & Sale. Thanks to everyone for coming out to join us. The weather couldn’t have been better. Our library absolutely sparkled with the addition of the beautiful oils, watercolors and pottery of local artists, and the Vincentown Garden Club’s floral arrangements. The Children’s Library also displayed works of art by local artists, young local artists. Some of the watercolors painted by the kids this summer were admired by folks as they enjoyed their refreshments.
Looking ahead to a busy October
The Stitching with Sally group will be expanding to include a Grown up Color Time. If you’re not a stitcher you’re still invited to come out to spend a relaxing afternoon or evening with your neighbors. (First and third Thursdays, 1 – 2:30 pm or 6:30 – 8 pm.)
The Children’s Library will feature a couple of new programs this month. Baby & Me Story time begins October 5th. And two sessions of Fun for Fours & Fives – Art, stories & crafts will be held October 12th and October 26th. And, as always our regular weekly Story time is Wednesday mornings at 10:30 am.
Don’t forget to visit us on Halloween. We’ll be having a special Halloween story time following the school parade and we’ll be open for Trick or Treat on Halloween night (until 7 pm).

August is almost here – join us for our weekly August Art session to see what’s planned!
Our summer kick-off was great!
Brian Richards was a hoot, as always, with lots of giggling and silliness followed by a crowd roll down the hill. (It’s hard to resist laying down and rolling when there’s a hill!)
