Bookmarks make great gifts for family and friends. Youngsters in grades 4, 5 and 6 are invited to design and create original ones on Thursday, December 7, at 2 p.m. The library will provide the supplies; participants need to bring their imaginations! Registration is required and begins November 27; to sign up, visit the Children's Room or call them at 978-929-6655, option 4.  



Young readers may make a 15 minute appointment to read aloud to Molly, a 4 year old Labradoodle, or Killian, a 3 year old Irish Setter. Both have gone to school to be therapy dogs, so they are perfect listeners. Molly and Killian and their people are members of the Pets and People Foundation.

Molly is at the library on Mondays from 4:15 to 5:15 p.m. and Killian comes on Wednesdays from 4 to 5 p.m.

To make an appointment, contact the Children's Room at 978 929-6655 option 4.
