Sunday, December 10, join in the tree lighting on Hagen Dock and then come to the library for the Candy Cane Social. All part of Stonington’s Holiday Hoopla, the activities start at 4 p.m. Don’t miss this wonderful opportunity to share the joy of the season with your friends and neighbors!
This winter’s book group will read and discuss 5 books that explore the theme of “Making a Living, Making a Life: Work and Its Rewards in a Changing America.” The group will meet at noon, the first Thursday of the month, beginning January 4, 2018. The first book to discuss is Growing Up by Russell Baker. Pick up your copy at the library. The books are provided by a grant from the Maine Humanities Council.
Join your friends at the library!

We are not the British Library but let’s celebrate one of the literary phenomena of the century. Wizards, as well as muggles, are encouraged to read (reread) the wonderful Harry Potter series by J. K. Rowling.

It is exciting to report that 7 people completed the Book Bingo challenge. All had to read 23 books, attend a library event, and convince a friend to read a book.
Winning $50 gift certificates from Blue Hill Books are: Natalie Jones, Nolan Decker and Iris Aldrich.
Because an anonymous donor recognizes the commitment needed to complete this summer challenge, four additional $25 gift certificates will go to: Sam Robbins, the Wendell family, Leslie Landrigan-Miller and Brieanna Barbato.
Congratulations to all for reading, reading, reading all summer!
