book jacketWednesday, October 29th

Library Conference Room
Please note, we meet on Wednesday for only this month.

This month we are reading The Museum of Extraordinary Things by Alice Hoffman

The story of an electric and impassioned love between two vastly different souls in New York during the volatile first decades of the twentieth century. With its colorful crowds of bootleggers, heiresses, thugs, and idealists, New York itself becomes a riveting character as Hoffman weaves her trademark magic, romance, and masterful storytelling to unite Coralie and Eddie in a sizzling, tender, and moving story of young love in tumultuous times.

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.
