Holiday Open House – December 4th
The Friends of the NE Branch Library invite all our neighbors and friends to the annual Holiday Open House on Saturday, December 4th from Noon to 3:00 p.m. Al Natale and his Jazz Band will perform holiday songs. Neighbor Frank DePasquale’s Il Panino Express will supply food with prizes from other merchants and neighbors. Bring a friend.
The BPL has announced that the closing of four branches slated for this Fall is postponed until Spring due to the City’s finding some additional funding.
Paula Luccio has chosen a selection of lamps for the tables in the adult section. Phyllis Vitti reported on the refurbishing of the staff room thanks to assembling by Chris Wells of new shelving, table and chairs. An October 6th Friends coffee hour went well to celebrate Italian Heritage Month.
Robin has been faithfully entering the library’s events and special programs in the Community Calendar.
The next Friends meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 10th at the library. The December meeting will be at the Mariner’s House, 11 North Square on December 8th at 6:30 p.m.
