Liberty Library News

Jo Peavey picked up 12 hats, 2 scarves and 1 cowl from the basket at the library last week and delivered them to the Soup Kitchen. They were very grateful to get them. The need at the moment is great for adult mittens, scarves, and cowls due to the extreme cold. Sue Chapin took 10 hats to the early Head Start program at WaldoCAP.  They can use small sized mittens.  They are also very grateful! Donations can be brought to the Library. Patterns are also available on the Library website. (

Winner of January Boggle is Barb Rehmeyer with 91. Can you beat that score?

Find as many words as you can by linking letters vertically, horizontally, and diagonally, but you can only use a letter square once in a word. Pick up a Boggle sheet at the library and write words on the sheet. We will post the highest scores on the website if you turn the Boggle sheet in at the Library desk.

Up the Road

There will be a screening of the documentary Wasted - A Story of Food Waste on Wednesday Feb. 7 at 5:30 - 8 p.m. at 69 School Street, Unity. This will be a film and short discussion to follow. Potluck supper at 5:30 and film commences at 6:00 p.m. This show is free and family friendly. For more information contact Mary at or 948-9005. If you are able, please bring a side dish, salad or dessert to share. Produced by Anthony Bourdain of Parts Unknown fame. Check out for a preview.

The Unity Cemetery Committee would like to invite everyone to The Unity College Center for Performing Arts on February 8th at 6 p.m. to see the award winning documentary A Will for the Woods, a movie about green cemeteries. Green burials are traditional and natural burials like those that took place before the funeral industry took over. Burial in a green cemetery is also much less expensive. Perhaps this documentary can help us all get started toward the goal of providing a green cemetery in our communities. February 15th has been set aside as a snow date. There will be no charge for the movie.


That's about it for this week. Until next time.
