the Cutler Memorial Library Newsletter #2017-02

Our TED TALK SALON in March will focus on themes that line up with Town Meeting Day. We'll watch some of these and perhaps others recommended by participants, with a brief discussion of each. The TED TALK SALON meets every 1st Sunday, 6 pm. We share snacks & tea.

We want YOU! (to join the Friends of the Library)



"Holy cow, Batman, the Friends of the Library are some of Plainfield's superheroes, and they need some help from the younger generations! There are only six, sometimes seven, active members and their average age is 75 years old!! They asked me to put the word out that meetings are only once a month, a couple of hours at the most, and that they're a bunch of swell gals that know how to put together a fun-raiser, er, I mean FUNDraiser that really brings in the bucks, big-time, for the library! They run a plant and book sale in the spring, a gift basket raffle before the holidays and sell primroses at town meeting... and golly do they have a fun time doing it! But they might be ready to pass the wand, if you know what I mean, they don't want to hog all the good times in this town, after all! They meet on the 4th Monday of each month, 7 pm, and they'll really dig it when some new members bust onto the scene to save the day!"

Classic Books by Conservative Thinkers

We believe in a diversity of views, and we have a community of diversely-thinking readers. We recently did an inventory of how well those viewpoints are represented and concluded we could add a few more titles by acclaimed conservatives.
More are on their way.
 

Better World Books Contest (Donate your used books!)

Although we usually don't feel the need to invite book donations (it's amazing how many books people "get done with" in a given year), the library director is hoping to enter a contest hosted by Better World Books, our online book reseller, and we need to send them four more boxes of books they want to sell for us. They don't take most of what people donate, so it will probably take at least 12 more boxes of donated books for us to make the grade. PLEASE DON'T LEAVE THEM OUTSIDE: bring them only when we are open, in boxes no bigger than a person of average strength can lift, or in plastic or cloth bags you can leave here. They particularly like fairly obscure books with ISBN bar codes Thank you!!
