Leisa’s Place

Our wonderful new Library named in loving memory of Leisa Crane Dedicated July 20, 2017

Spring Hours

THURSDAY  10am – 12pm

As we look forward to the summer months and the various activities of the community, I would like to put out an inquiry for a volunteer or group of volunteers who would like to offer a program for younger children this summer. This could easily be a “one time” activity of your own choosing. It could take place inside the library, out in the CC yard or elsewhere within the village surroundings.

Last year children enjoyed outdoor movies, a scavenger hunt, stone skipping contest, crafting (the kids really like that and we do have many supplies on hand) or a Story time for younger children also at a time of your choosing….maybe in the morning! For those who may not be familiar, for many years we successfully held Story Hour on Monday evenings. In the last few years (pre Covid), attendance had diminished greatly. Therefore, the thought of someone(s) doing something new seems a possibility. Please let me know if you would like to offer something along these lines!

Please call SueMaccalous @ 617-671-5977 to let us know of your interest.

As I write this information today, the plan for the immediate time frame is to have the building fully open. I am hopeful that we have several volunteers to then staff the library most weekdays throughout July and August. We will continue to remain open for 2 hours each day. Exact times to be determined in cooperation with our volunteers. In the meanwhile, we can offer you several new reads. Please stop by to find something you will enjoy and perhaps share with others. Once again, there is a list of books at the end of this document we would like to add and would gratefully receive if you’d like to make a donation. Or perhaps you have read something recently that you’re anxious to have others enjoy… Thank you
