PLAISTOW — Come to the library on Plaistow's Old Home Day on Sat., June 30, where we will host an art exhibit of the work of some of our favorite artists from monthly displays: Elizabeth Charlotte Orban, Judy Krassowski, Nicole DeClerck, Craig O'Neill and more. Enjoy lemonade and cookies courtesy of our wonderful Friends of the Library at Plaistow (affectionately known as FLAP!). The library will be open this year, from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m.,, and don't miss the return of the Bookettes marching/dancing in the parade to the choreography of last year's success Amanda Horrocks! Celebrate Old Home Day with your library!
The library will be closed on Wed., July 4, for Independence Day.
