Wednesday Afternoon Films
We will begin showing films again in mid-September and run them through to the end of March. We’ll post more information closer to that time. Our film license doesn’t allow us to advertise our films outside of the library venue but we’ll post a reminder that films are starting up again in the Millstone and you can check here or on our Facebook page for more info. We’ll also be putting posters up at both branches and there will be handouts at the front desk with the dates and film titles. Email Margo with your suggestions.

Teen Advisory Group (TAG)
Our Teen Advisory Group is a venue for teens in grades 9 through 12 to develop leadership skills, create library programs and influence our teen collection, while gaining community service hours! This is a great opportunity to:
- Suggest new teen programs
- Volunteer at programs such as travelogues, technology workshops, and other library
- Write book reviews for our review blog
- Create book or art displays and make recommendations to improve our teen spaces
Our community is remarkably well traveled and this program allows for the sharing of travel advice, stories and photographs. Contact Katherine Pillsworth for more information.
