Sandown Library News

SANDOWN — Expert and beginning knitters are always welcome to join the knitting group that meets every Monday night at 6:30 p.m., at the Sandown Public Library. Bring your current project with you to work on. Sandown resident Judith Lozzi will also be available to share her knitting advice with other crafters.

Monday Movie – The library will have a double showing of another 2013 Oscar-winning movie, “Silver Linings Playbook” on Mon., May 13, at 1:00 p.m., and again at 5:30 p.m. The comedy is about a young man starring Bradley Cooper who has lost everything — his house, his job, and his wife. He now finds himself living back with his mother and father after spending eight months in a state institution. Things get more challenging when Pat meets Tiffany, a mysterious girl with problems of her own.

Plants, Books and Bake Sale - On Sat., May 18, from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., the Friends will hold their annual “Plants, Books and Bake” Sale at the library. Items will all be available at great prices. Gardeners may choose from a wide selection of perennials, annuals, and herbs from local gardens. A variety of hardcover and paperback books for both adults and children will be on hand in the book sale room. And everyone can enjoy the homemade baked items at very reasonable prices. Be sure to stop by and support the Friends group.

Friends of the Library Meeting — The Friends of the Library will hold their May meeting on Mon., May 20, at 6:30 p.m., to discuss upcoming fundraising events. New members are always welcome. Join this active group of volunteers as they work on many activities that supplement the library’s budget and enhance programs and materials offered to the residents of Sandown.

Holiday Hours — Just a reminder that the Library will be closed on Sat., May 25 and Mon., May 27 for Memorial Day Weekend.
