PLAISTOW — Visit the library during the month of January to see the artwork of the students of local artist Susan Kneeland. The work represents artists aged 9 to adult and are from many surrounding towns. The pieces include portraits, still life, and landscapes and are quite nice to see. The horizontal display cases are hosting the pie plate collection of Mr. Oscar Fortin. The pie plates are an interesting look at many decades of pie plate history.
Come see our new Giant Bookworm! He needs a name and Miss Cara invites the kids to submit names to name him. He’s the biggest in the world – we think!
The first and third Wednesday of each month is the meeting for My Brother’s Keeper from 9:00 a.m. to noon.

The group is also looking for donations of high loft queen size batting and one-inch wide sew-on Velcro. Due to previous generosity, fabric donations are not accepted at this time.
