Join us at the library!

For a celebration and a look ahead

Wednesday November 17th from 6-8pm

The Monson Library board of directors is reaching out with an invitation to come join us at the Library for a first annual community get-together.

It's been a long Pandemic for all of us, and we've been working hard behind the scenes to keep the Library healthy and poised for our recent re-opening post Covid-- We have a huge thanks to our Librarian, Tom, for his commitment and courage upon reopening!

We'd love for you to come join us, we'll chat a little about where the Library has been and what direction we, the Library Board members, have been trying to lead the Library into the future. We have a few exciting things to chat about, things accomplished and things to come! We're very excited to share our updates and also to invite and encourage you all to stop by more often, to participate, to tell us what you'd like to see so we can make our Library more and more pertinent to the interests and explorations of our contemporary community.

Wednesday Night, Nov 17, 6p-8p at the Monson Library, please come swing through, enjoy some cider and maybe a little autumn warmer or two-- reconnect with your neighbors and come help us nurture the Library into our shared future.
