Library Events for December 2009

First Tuesday Book Club

There is no First Tuesday Book Club in December. We'll start up again
January 5th at 7:00 pm with the book Mountains Beyond Mountains by Tracy Kidder. You can pick up the book at the front desk anytime after December 4th.

Wednesday December 2nd at 7:00 pm
Morsebag Pod!

Come join the Hancock Morsbags Pod! We make reusable, light weight & strong cotton bags to hand out to the unsuspecting public. These bags are an excellent alternative to the plastic or paper dilemma and they are a good way to keep fabric out of the waste stream. We meet in the Daniels Room of the Hancock Library on the first Wednesdays of the month at 7pm. For more information, you can check out www.morsbags.com or call Tracy Stevens at 525-3067. You don't even have to be able to sew!

Thursday December 3rd from 3:15 to 4:15

The library is accepting Lego donations because so many children are coming to Lego Club! If you have any Legos your family no longer uses, our club will happily put them to use! The kids have especially requested Lego people, wheels, and platforms. Thanks so much!

Also, please note that beginning in January 2010, Lego Club will take place on the FIRST TUESDAY of every month. We will no longer meet on Thursdays in 2010.

Thursday December 3rd at 7:00 pm
Living in Afghanistan

Ron Lucas of Greenfield, NH spent three years, from 1965 to 1968, living and working in Afghanistan as a Peace Corps volunteer. Ron will tell us what it was like and show slides of daily life. Come get another view of the Afghans, their culture, their way of life and how they positively affected Ron. Free and open to all.
