Sandown Library News

SANDOWN — Cribbage Club is on the first and third Tuesday of each month at the Sandown Public Library. Bring your friends along for a game or two and maybe learn a new strategy. This program is for adults of all abilities.

Mon., October 21 is movie day. The library will be showing “Quartet” at 1:00 and 5:30 p.m. The home for retired musicians will soon host a new resident. Word is, it’s a star but the other residents are in for a shock when this former ‘star’ turns out to be none other than their former singer partner. Will the famous quartet let old wounds keep them from making music together again, or will they be able to patch up their differences in time for the gala concert? Light refreshments will be served at 1:00 p.m. and pizza at 5:30 p.m.

The Friends of the Sandown Public Library will sponsor “Haunted Lighthouses of New England” on Tues., October 22 at 6:30 p.m., at the Sandown Town Hall. In his presentation, Jeremy D’Entremont shares firsthand knowledge of the mystifying tales and spine-chilling events that have taken place in a number of New England lighthouses. The Affordable Health Care Act is now available. Learn more about this on Mon., November 4 at 6:30 p.m. A representative from AARP will be on hand for a presentation and questions.
