Plaistow Library News

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. This group of quilters makes ugly sleeping bags for the homeless and welcomes other sewers to come help. 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. For more information, check out mybrotherskeeper.org.

February 8 is Crafty Kids from 9:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m. Come drop by to do a themed craft with Miss Cara. Registration is required and is for Plaistow Library cardholders. The recommended ages are from 4-12.

Ages 9 and up are invited take a colorful, fun Friendship Bracelet to keep or give to a friend on February 11, from 6:00-7:00 p.m. Miss Cara will guide you through the fun process of making your own creation. All materials provided. Registration is required and open to Plaistow Library cardholders.

Book Talk with the Staff will be held on Wed., February 12, from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Join Cab, Kelli, Anita, and Raven as they discuss a favorite book or two for five minutes each. Participants are welcome to bring a book or two to share as well! Not sure what to bring? How about your favorite reads from 2013? Or, perhaps a book that made an impact on your life…
