Amelia made it to 1,000,
our first participant to make it all the way to the top.
Our library started this fun program last fall,
to encourage families to read together when
young brains are so pliable and ready to learn!

Come and see what we’ve been scanning from the
Longwell Family postcards for the WRLS ECHO Project;
a regional online collection of history.
On May 16-20, you can check out the original postcards
all that week and add your knowledge to ours.
On that Monday and Thursday from 1:30-6:30,
we’ll have a slideshow running of the images.
This picture is only one of the many!

hereticsCome join our discussion of Kathleen Kent’s book
The Heretic’s Daughter, on Monday, May 14th, at 7pm.
Need a copy? Let us know.
Martha Carrier was one of the first women to be accused,
tried and hanged as a witch in Salem, Massachusetts.
Like her mother, young Sarah Carrier is bright and willful,
openly challenging the small, brutal world in which they live.
Often at odds with one another,
mother and daughter are forced to stand together
against the escalating hysteria of the trials and
the superstitious tyranny that led to the torture and imprisonment
of more than 200 people accused of witchcraft.
This is the story of Martha’s courageous defiance and ultimate death,
as told by the daughter who survived.
Kathleen Kent is a tenth generation descendant
of Martha Carrier. (Amazon)

4-10-16 1 Suzy Tweet What a delightful night of music by patrons, for patrons.
The performances were by different ages on different instruments,
with different genres of music represented.
The piano, belonging to Cindi Schein,
was moved here just for the occasion!
Everyone had a wonderful time
(except for maybe Mitzi, the cat).
Jerry Modahl would have been very pleased.
