“The Book Nook”  – an activity group for grades 4 and up.  This has branched off from the Great Stone Face program, and become a fun, interactive group, doing various activities.   (Be sure to stop by and put a favorite book suggestion on the board, or just any information you’d like to share with your peers!)  Activity suggestions are welcomed, and the suggestion box is in the library.

The next play is: “The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe” based on the book written by C.S. Lewis.  Saturday, May 6, 2017, 4:00PM, Warner Town Hall   Admission “fee” is  an item donation or $ to the local food pantry.  There is a brief intermission when refreshments will be available- all donations from that go to the library’s renovations.
