Plaistow Library News

PLAISTOW — The Plaistow Public Library presents Jeff Snow: the Softer Side of Celtic, on Thurs., March 28, at 6:30 p.m. After growing up in a home where Scottish folk songs were the everyday sounds, Jeff developed a love for Celtic music. His concerts feature guitar, autoharp, and Bouzouki. We hope you will join us for an evening of sharing stories, songs and tunes enriched by the history of Scotland, Ireland and England. Registration is requested, not required. All ages welcome.

Stories With Savannah is offered the fourth Monday of every month from 4:00-5:00 p.m. Cuddle up and read with this special Labrador Retriever Therapy Dog and her handler. Choose your own books, relax with Savannah, and practice your reading skills. Sign up for March 25 for one of four fifteen-minute sessions. Registration is required. Ages 6 and up.

What if you only had one day to live? What would you do? Who would you kiss? And how far would you go to save your own life? The Teen Voices book group will begin reading “Before I Fall” by Lauren Oliver which poses these questions for its teen heroine Samantha Kingston. Come by the library to pick up your copy of the book on March 27 at 6:00 p.m. Teen Voices meets every fourth Wednesday. The book will be discussed April 24.

Have you browsed our Lucky Day bookshelf recently? Located at the front desk, this shelf offers a selection of the most popular books we own, free of long waits on the “hold” list. Some of the books available are Gillian Flynn’s “Gone Girl”, M.L. Stedman’s “The Light Between Oceans”, J.D. Robb’s “Delusion in Death”, and the latest James Patterson. Each book checks out for one week and cannot be renewed.

If you need assistance with an eReader or the features of our Koha library catalog, please visit the library on Mondays at 12:00 or 6:30 p.m. for “Tech Talks,” where our librarians will do their best to answer your questions.
