SANDOWN — Continuing our focus on “Everything New England,” the Sandown Public Library will present a program on the process to make maple syrup on Thurs., February 7 at 6:30 p.m. Do you wonder how sap from a maple tree becomes syrup in the bottle? Meet Brian Folsom from Folsom’s Sugarhouse in Chester, and learn what’s involved to make homemade maple syrup. It won’t be long before the sap starts running and the process will start. Space is limited so please register online or call 887-3428. Maple syrup products will be available for purchase.
Movie & Social (two showings): Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the library will show the romantic comedy, “Play the Game” starring Andy Griffiths and Doris Roberts on Mon., February 11 at 1:00 p.m. and again at 5:30 p.m. Light refreshments will be served at the afternoon performance and Bruchetti’s pizza at the 5:30 p.m. Everyone is welcome to attend.
