Best Book Sale of the Year! Friends of the Library book sale Columbus Day weekend - Oct. 10 and 11 from 9-2!
Christian McEwen will read from her recently published book
Wednesday, October 14 at 7pm
Author, educator, and cultural activist Christian McEwen will read from her recently published book, Sparks from the Anvil: The Smith College Poetry Interviews.
McEwen’s deep knowledge of poetry, and prodigious skill as an interviewer elicit deeply thoughtful answers from the 16 poets she interviews for the book. McEwen says, “Each poet has a private tale to tell, yet it is also possible to braid those tales together, and read them as a kind of composite biography centered on poetry itself – where it comes from, forms it can take, and what circumstances encourage it to flourish.
Travel the Watershed Suitcase
The “Travel the Watershed” suitcases, built and adorned by local artists in 2013, will be on display at Meekins Library through November 2015 to share the wonderful events, trainings and workdays, as well as the ongoing work of the Wild & Scenic Westfield River committee. The Wild & Scenic committee offers community members the opportunity to become active river stewards and increase their knowledge of the Wild & Scenic Westfield River and its watershed.
Meredyth Babcock, the committee’s volunteer coordinator, believes that all of us want to help preserve the places that, support, rejuvenate and inspire us. The suitcases make information and river stewardship easily available to the communities we serve, through awareness, education and an open invitation to join the Wild & Scenic volunteers.
Baby and Me Tummy Time
Tuesday,October 13th from 1:00-1:45 - Hawks Hayden Room
We will be hosting a "Baby and Me Tummy Time" program. Designed for our youngest library users (birth-18 months) and their caregivers, the Baby and Me program offers participants the opportunity to share time together at the library. During the 40 minute program, babies and their grownups will be exposed to language, books, music, movement, songs, fingerplay and playful activities in a positive and supportive atmosphere. Baby and Me programs are a great way to introduce young children to the library and help children develop into lifelong library users. We invite you to come sing, clap, bounce and listen to nursery rhymes and stories!
Please bring your own blanket.
