Searsmont Town Library

The library is a busy place between snowfalls, but you can drop by in any weather to play board games on Thursdays from 4 to 8 p.m. Challenge the librarian to a game of Backgammon (he just learned to play!).

Beginning on Saturday, March 9, at 10 a.m., the library will be showing a 30-minute episode of The Muppet Show (1976) each Saturday, followed by 15 to 30 minutes of creative activity. An adult should accompany children under the age of 12.

Looking ahead: The Book Group meets Thursday, March 14, at 6 p.m., and folksinger Bill Berlinghoff will play a concert on Sunday, March 15, at 7 p.m.
