The Friends are delighted with improvements we have been able to contribute to the Library. The new shelving in the Children’s Room creates a cozy nook for award-winning books and frees up much-needed space. Upstairs we’ve added a couple of new book racks for our ever-expanding collections. The New England Aquarium has been added to the list of Museum Passes available to patrons. From the book donations we received last year we were able to add about 2400 of them to the Stevens Memorial Library collection.
All these improvements are made possible by the Friends’ book sales. Mark your calendars: the next big sale will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday May 13, 14, 15. We’ve been assembling our stock since November and we will have our usual huge collection of great books and other items at great prices. It’s your chance to stock up for summer reading.
We appreciate the generous donations which make our sales so successful. You can leave donations any time the library is open at the lower hall on the designated shelves.
Remember the Friends also sell books, CDs and DVDs all year long. Check out the fiction, non-fiction, paperback and children’s shelves in the lower hall.

A great idea

If you are looking for a great way to honor someone or to create a memorial, consider donating a sum to the Library to acquire books or other materials on a subject they enjoyed. Special book plates will be created with the wording you choose. For more information talk with Library Director, Mary Rose Quinn.
