book jacket for The Paris Wife

This month we are reading The Paris Wife by Paula McLain

Tuesday, September 30th
10:00 – 11:30 am.
Library Conference Room

Meeting through mutual friends in Chicago, Hadley is intrigued by brash “beautiful boy” Ernest Hemingway, and after a brief courtship and small wedding, they take off for Paris, where Hadley makes a convincing transformation from an overprotected child to a game and brave young woman who puts up with impoverished living conditions and shattering loneliness to prop up her husband’s career.

New members are always welcome.

Friends of the Library Fundraiser

Photo of LibraryWould you donate an ear(ring) to support the Library? Just one small earring can make a big difference!

During the month of October, the Friends of the Library have partnered with Gold Trader and their Lend an Ear… Lend a Hand! charitable program.

Here’s how it works:
1. Donate an item to the Friends. Drop your item or items off at the library or bring them to Gold Trader.
2. Earn money for yourself and the Friends. Bring your unwanted gold, silver, diamond and platinum items (rings, chains, coins, flatware etc.) to Gold Trader at 1360 Allen Street in Springfield. For every sale, Gold Trader will donate an additional 10% to benefit the Friends of the Library. Pick up a Friends “Lend and Ear… Lend a Hand!” coupon at the library today! A coupon must accompany your item.
3. If you can’t make it to the store, call Gold Trader at 304-2335 and arrange for “at home” service.
