NEWTON — Thank you very much to the Friends of the Gale Library for their recent donation of two new HP computers to update our public catalog stations! These computers will provide access to our resources and research information. The Friends help support the Library with services and items that benefit the community. We greatly appreciate their time and efforts for all they do throughout the year! Upcoming events include their annual bake sale that will be held on Voting Day on March 11. New members are always welcome! The next scheduled meeting is planned for Tues., March 4 at 1:00 p.m.

Have you signed up for this year’s Winter Reading programs? With the cold snowy weather, it is an excellent time to curl up with a book and enjoy a relaxing respite. Weekly prizes will be awarded to readers of all ages.

A Family Movie will be shown on Wed., January 29 at 2:00 p.m. This is an early release day from school. Enjoy the afternoon with an entertaining film along with popcorn.

Yarn Club meets each Friday afternoon, from 1:00-3:00 p.m. If you enjoy knitting and crocheting, you are cordially invited to join this cheerful group of members to work on your current project or start something new. The Library subscribes to many crafting magazines along with books that provide ideas, instruction, and inspiration. Stop by for a cup of cocoa or tea and cookies and share a pleasant afternoon with fellow crafters!
