Town Tribune Library Column -- September 5, 2019

posted Sep 3, 2019, 11:43 AM by NF Library

New Fairfield Town Fair Day

   The Friends of the Library will have a tent on Memorial Field for New Fairfield’s Town Fair, 12-6 pm, Saturday, September 7.  If you think you might want to volunteer with the Friends to help support the Library, please stop by and chat with some of their representatives.

Librarians After Hours

   Much to our delight and surprise, the September and October book discussion groups have been filled.  Registration for the November 14th meeting will open online October 3rd.  We realize this is very early to be talking about something taking place a few months from now. It’s almost as bad as seeing Christmas decorations out in August.  This program, held at Biscotti’s, has turned out to be such a popular item that we thought you might want to pencil in a reminder  for the registration date if you missed out on the other two months.  The Library would like to offer these programs to as many different participants as possible. If you have signed up for either one or both of the other two months, please give the opportunity for others in the community to register. Thank you for your consideration. Librarians After Hours is made possible through a grant from the Derx Foundation.
