Drop by this Wednesday, August 27 between 10:30 - 4:30 to wish Fran a wonderful retirement after ten years of service to the community.


Those of you who have been in the Library recently--and many of you have since we have been unusually busy all summer--will have noticed a strong smell of paint in the air. Sorry about that, but the Festival Room, in which all of our more popular events take place, was in need of freshening up. By the time this column appears on August 21st, the paint smell will be a faint memory (I hope) so come in to admire the result and, at the same time, take the opportunity to buy some books at our GIANT BOOK SALE which will be in full swing until 5PM on the 23rd.

Come on Wednesdays for bridge at its friendliest. Partners and refreshments provided. Progressive bridge with supervised play. Have a problem with a hand? Call on our friendly director for guidance. Ed Hills is a certified instructor with the ACBL and ABTA. Join the club!

$30 per six-week session or give a week a try for $6. Please register ahead. Refreshments provided.


When this column appears in the Pelham News it will be August 7th and almost the last day of the summer children's programs. There will be one segment of Mad Science, namely Lights, Colour, Action, on August 12th and the end of the Summer Reading Club that same week. The Reading Club BBQ--children who signed up for the Club will get a free hot dog or hamburger and a drink--will be at noon on Friday August 15th. The only other event, which is open to both children and adults/seniors, is the Ice Cream Social and involves making ice cream in a baggie and then consuming the result. Delicious!


As we start the hiring process for the next Pelham Library CEO, the Library Board is seeking input from our community. Have your voice included in the process by filling out the following short survey. Thank you for your input.
