posted Sep 5, 2018, 8:29 AM by NF Library

Library Card Sign Up Month

   A library card may be given to a town resident any time of the year.  September is the official push for new cards as the children go back to school.  Getting a card is very easy.  Please bring a document (license, piece of mail, utility bill, etc.) showing your New Fairfield address and then your new card may be used at any library across the state!  We have much to offer through our website and in-house.  Having a library card is your key to the magic door through which there is much to discover!

Friends of the Library Book Sale

   The Friends of the Library are collecting resources for their upcoming book sale to be held September 22, 23, and 24.  Please bring any donations into the Community Room during library hours.

Adult Programs

  Friday Night Crafting Club, 6-8 pm.  Bring your project to the Library and take some time for yourself with fellow crafters.  This informal group meets in the Library’s lower level and requires no registration.

   Meet the Author Series, 6:30 pm.  September 7th will bring R.J. Theodore to discuss her experience and offer advice to would be authors.  The author will do a brief reading from one of her books with the latest one being Flotsam: Peridot Shift, followed by a question and answer period.  Theodore co-hosts The Hybrid Author Podcast and writes nonfiction as Rekka Jay.

   Sept. 21, 6:30 pm.  Long-time New Fairfield resident, R.J. Cadmus.  “Jay” will talk about his experience and the origins of his first novel, Ordinary Man. It is the story of Bill Ward—an average guy caught squarely in the middle-age slump until he commits a courageous lifesaving act that shoves him into the public spotlight.

   Sept. 28, 6:30 pm.  Roman Godzich will speak about the writing process, the path to publishing, specificities of speculative fiction or even what it is like to research and write characters from different cultures.  His book, No Higher Ground, is about a xenobiologist who finds himself on the project of his dreams only to get caught up in a war between the US and China.
