Blog Update

Good Morning..... Our Bakerville Library blog has not been updated in some time. We hope to change all of that, and keep you current on new programs, new books, and new opportunities to volunteer in the "Best Little Library" in Connecticut.

Our programming committee has been hard at work this year, sponsoring a Pumpkin Painting event, a historic walk through Bakerville, a Winter Reading Program, a new morning book group, a gardening presentation and supplying our library with College Courses on CD. Ideas for next year are currently being discussed, and the committee would welcome your suggestions. What would you like to see at the library? Family nights? More story times? Lectures? Workshops? Please let us hear from you.

In the meantime, the next Morning Book Group will meet in the library on Thursday, May 12th to discuss Barbara Kingsolver's Animal Dreams. Please join us; the group is open to all. Also, we will soon begin gathering books for our annual used book sale and Marketplace - always a fun day.

Good things are happening at The Bakerville a part of them.

What are you reading now that you are enjoying? I am reading Animal Dreams for the second time to prepare for the May 12th morning book group, and I am remembering why I liked it so much the first time.

I also just finished Elizabeth Street by Laurie Fabiano. It is a novel about Italian immigrants in New York City at the turn of the 20th century. It is based on the true stories of the author's family, and is rich in detail about the plight of the Italians who remained behind and the problems faced by the new immigrants in New York.
Let us know what else is good out there.... summer is coming and people will be stocking up on good summer reads.
