Current Events at the Library:
The Deborah Rawson Book Lovers book club will meet on Tuesday, December 10th at 7 pm. Deborah Rawson Book Lovers (DRBL) is an adult book discussion group that meets every month at the library. The November book was SENSE OF AN ENDING by Julian Barnes. While at first few admitted to "loving" it, interesting discussion always gives us a fresh perspective. December will be the LANGUAGE OF FLOWERS by Vanessa Diffenbaugh. New members are always welcome to drop in on any meeting - always the second Tuesday of the month at 7. Happy reading! For more information about book club, contact Christine Staffa at Christine@cstaffa.com.
The Adult Writers Group will meet Wednesday, December 11th 6-8 PM. Whether you've been working on your novel for years, or have just picked up a pen, we would love to hear from YOU! The goal of the group is to create a community of writers. Participants will share and critique each other's work in a supportive environment. Bloggers, short-story writers, novelists, screen-play writers, poets, and other dabblers of scribbling are welcome! During the month, participants will submit their writing piece to the group via email, so everyone has a chance to read and critique each piece. The meeting time will be devoted to talking about what we have read, our observations and thoughts of improvement. We meet the second Wednesday of every month. Please contact Elise Doner with any questions about the group: firstname.lastname@example.org or call 899-2644. Happy Writing!

Who's Been Stepping in the Snow? Saturday, December 14th at 10:30 am. A walk in the snowy woods is much more fun when you know who's been sharing your path! Join Kristen Littlefield from WildThings! for a workshop focused on teaching children the basics of tracking, based on the Keeping Track© program based in Jericho, Vermont. Join in the excitement as we learn about the kinds of animals who make tracks in the snow. Children will make their own Who's Been Here? animal print stories using stamps and long strips of paper. If weather permits, we may be able to take a walk outside to see who's been in the snow in your neck of the woods. There will also be opportunities to play a track matching game and measure life-sized tracks using unifix cubes and tiles. Space is limited so please call 899-4962 to reserve your spot!
Calling all Scrabble players! Monday, December 16th 6:30-8:30 pm is the next Scrabble night. Come join your neighbors for an evening of fun!
