Build A Better World, our summer reading program, is off to a great start this week. Special reader Marlene Kohn read the story "Show Way" by Jacqueline Woodson. It's a story about quilts with secret meanings that are maps to freedom. Marlene has been quilting since the 1980's and talked to the children about her hobby. The children then made their own quilts with cut out pieces of flannel and colored card stock. The snack for the day was graham cracker squares, decorated to look like quilt pieces. Couldn't make it last Thursday, stop in and pick up a reading record and join the fun.

On Tuesdays at 1pm we have a new group meeting at the library. They are the Kingston Comm. for the Preservation of Sanity group. Bring a craft. Sit and visit. Read a book. Get out of the house and save your sanity. The groups motto is "Together we will make it through the winter without losing our minds." Last week one member worked on a painting, while another quilted a baby blanket. Others just sat and visited. Come join the group, and save your sanity!
