Thanks to all the volunteers that donated baskets! We once again had a successful fundraiser! The bidding went on until 11am yesterday and all the baskets found great homes! Thanks to everyone that participated!
We are displaying a pre-civil war signature quilt made in 1844 in Brookline, MA. The quilt will be on display and raffle tickets sold from November 5th through the 23rd. The quilt, an amazingly intact piece of history, is part of “The Quilt That Built a Library” yearlong fundraising effort by the Princeton Public LIbrary. Visitors, quilters, historians and genealogy aficionados are encouraged to stop in to see the quilt up close. Raffle tickets will be sold, as one lucky person will win this 1844 treasure on the drawing date of March 15, 2013.
The first story hour of the season was a great success. After coloring our "A" we read the story "Andrew's Loose Tooth". The Aquariums turned out beautifully and the kids enjoyed the Applejack snack!
Come and join us next Thursday at 4:30pm!
School isn't the only thing that starts in September. It's also the month that story hour starts again at the Mill Pond Public Library in Kingston. This year the theme will focus on the alphabet, with a different letter each week, and special crafts and themes for the holidays! The programs will be held on Thursday afternoons, starting on Sept 20th, at 4:30pm at the library. Each week there will be a story, then the children do a craft and have a light snack. All ages are welcome to attend.
Thank you to the anonymous donor, who purchased items that were on our Amazon Wish List, and had them sent to the library. We greatly appreciate your support!!
