Winter Newsletter

January 2022

Winter has arrived.  Time for staying inside, bundling up inside or out, hot soup, reflecting on 2021, and of course, READING!  Possible reading topics starting with “w:” wellness, warblers, weaving, wisdom, wilderness, wonder, whales, wiggles, worms, Williamsburg history.  Winter implies curling up with a good book, maybe one you’ve gotten from a Friends of the Libraries book sale.  We are happy that we were able to have our October book sale as planned.  As we look forward to the next one, we are planning something new: community collection days.  There will be four of them:

January 15

April 9

June 11

August 27

Anyone wishing to donate used books in good condition should bring them to the Library from 10-1 on any of those days and the Friends will be there to receive them.  We have decided to no longer take any media (cd’s, DVD’s, vhs tapes, cassette tapes), and we do not take reference books, encyclopedias, or textbooks. 

On the second Monday night of each month, the Board of the Friends has a meeting where we plan our fund-raising activities and discuss the other ways we can support our community and the needs of our very special Library.  All Friends members are invited to attend.  If you are interested in helping with our fundraising and community events and would like to join the Board, please contact Susan Waltner at swaltner@smith.edu  We’re always happy to have new book lovers and community supporters at the table with us.
