FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY
It’s never too early to bring in items for the May Silent Auction. Local craftsman, artists and lovely items are always welcome. This is a favorite fund raiser for the Friends and helps fund, in part, the summer reading program, American Red Cross babysitter’s class, and other programs for the community.
LE CERCLE FRANCAIS
The next meeting will be Thursday, May 4, 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. There will be no meeting in April.
KILL A WATT
Made available from National Grid, the Kill A Watt kit has arrived at our library and includes a booklet and monitor and easy conservation tips as well as information about energy savings rebates and programs available through National Grid and Mass Save. The kit assists homeowners in understanding their energy use. Check out or reserve for your use from the library.

My Coke Rewards!
The Friends of the Library request donations of point rewards from your Coca Cola products. For several years the Friends have subscribed to ten magazine titles using donated points for a total value of $350, titles include; Entertainment Weekly, Better Homes and Gardens, Cooking Light, and Family Circle among others. This has proven to be a cost effective use of this reward system by the Friends for the library. Thanks to all who contribute the caps and fridge pack codes.
