Weekend of December 5 Activities

 Wow!  59 joined us at the Fire Hall Saturday night for a spectacular evening of cookie decorating (made possible by the generosity of Danielle and her many lovely elves).  Huge Bonus - we were all treated to a ride in a fire truck, EVEN MRS. CLAUS!

Sunday night's Annual Tree Lighting and Reception was attended by 32 of the library's favorite people.  If you weren't able to come this year please mark your calendars NOW for next year - it was a wonderful evening and I hope you will join us in 2015 for this special event.  Thank you to everyone who brought in special treats and cheer.  The library will be receiving $346 from the sale of Princess House goodies, YAY!

Did you hear that the skating rink behind the fire hall is open daily 8am - 10pm?  7,376  people saw it on Facebook thanks to 73 shares - how cool is that?

SCHOOL SUPPLIES FROM NIKKI JOHNSON-POOLE

49 Morristown youth ranging in age from pre-K to 11th grade were supplied with school supplies at the library Saturday morning free of charge.  Nikki Johnson-Poole of Unionville, CT has been collecting book bags, binders, notebooks, pencils, pens, markers, glue, crayons, protractors, colored pencils and MORE for almost a year in order to sponsor this special program.  She is an extreme couponer and philanthropist at heart.  Her mother Kandi and grandmother Kathy live in Morristown and had the very fun job of distributing these supplies. 

THANK YOU, Kandi, Kathy and Nikki!  YOU HAVE HELPED MANY FAMILIES PREPARE THEIR CHILDREN FOR SCHOOL!

MORE WONDERFUL SCIENCE AT THE MPL!

 

Mia Brunette produced today's two experiments with (a little) help from her Grandpa, Greg Brunette.  We each saw (with our very own eyes) how temperature fluctuations move air and create wind!  In her second experiment we saw how salt changes the density of water.  Wow, Mia - you are a super scientist, for sure!  To see the entire photo album from today's group be sure to visit us on Facebook.

COMPUTER AREA BECOMES MORE ACCOMODATING

 

Greg Thibert volunteered his skills to assemble 6 new chairs and 2 kiosks tonight.  Each of the new pieces were carefully chosen to better utilize the tiny computer area's small space and add as much comfort as possible to our patrons.  Thank you, Greg!  It looks wonderful and we ALL appreciate your help.

YOUR LIBRARY - GROWING TO MEET YOUR NEEDS.

SOCK ROCKERZ CONCERT AND PIZZA PARTY

 

 

What a great show!  Thank you Natalie and Ella for visiting Morristown - it was certainly a pleasure to have you here.  I had so much fun and I think the rest of the 50 in attendance did as well.

 Thank you to everyone who came and helped make this special show the great success that it was, especially Board President Maggie Whalen for picking up the 15 pizzas and drinks!

The Wind in the Islands by Scott Ouderkirk

Tonight was scheduled to be a big night and boy-oh-boy was it ever!  The Cornwall Brothers Museum in Alex Bay was bustling with the purchase of Scott's new book and also the spectacular glass panels designed from the story. 

THIS IS HISTORY IN THE MAKING! 

Our friends from Bella-Brooke Vineyard and Winery were there and it was so good to see so many patrons from Morristown make the short trip to be a part of it
