Don’t forget September 9th from 5:30- 7PM we will be having our discussion on Brooklyn by Colm Tóibín.
If you have read this book and would like to join our discussion please call 251-4343 to join. We will see you there!
The Town of Johnsburg Library Board Meeting is scheduled for Wednesday, September 7th at 5:30 PM @ the library.
Colm Tóibín’s sixth novel, Brooklyn, is set in Brooklyn and Ireland in the early 1950s, when one young woman crosses the ocean to make a new life for herself.
Eilis Lacey has come of age in small-town Ireland in the hard years following World War Two. When an Irish priest from Brooklyn offers to sponsor Eilis in America — to live and work in a Brooklyn neighborhood “just like Ireland” — she decides she must go, leaving her fragile mother and her charismatic sister behind.
Eilis finds work in a department store on Fulton Street, and when she least expects it, finds love. Tony, who loves the Dodgers and his big Italian family, slowly wins her over with patient charm. But just as Eilis begins to fall in love with Tony, devastating news from Ireland threatens the promise of her future.
We will be meeting on September 9th from 5:30- 7:00 PM here at the library.
If you would like to join us please bring an appetizer and call to RSVP.
See you there.
GIVE or TAKE
The Knitting Circle at the Town of Johnsburg Library is hosting a material
“swap” on Saturday, August 27, 2016, 9:15- 10:15 am (setting up at 9:15). Bring in anything from small amounts of yarn to projects you no longer want, extra equipment (including knitting needles of any size or shape) and crochet hooks, markers, and guide cards. Clean out that unused stash! Bring an extra bag to bring home new materials for that next project, or those little odds and ends you need for granny squares or striped work. If you bring it in and it doesn’t find a new home, we ask that you take it back.
Coffee, tea, and a snack will be available.
If you have nothing to bring to the “swap” – no problem! Bring yourself and feel
free to bring home a new project. We’re looking forward to meeting others who
like working with fibers. So those of you who crochet are welcome too.
This is our 3’rd Annual GIVE or TAKE. We had so much fun with the last two and we were able to meet so many who knit but can’t always join us at the library on Thursdays from 2:30- 4-pm.
We decided to host another, hope to see you there!
