Sometimes it can be hard to read out loud to people. You might be worried that they're judging how well you read. A dog doesn't make that kind of judgement; they just want to sit and listen happily. We will be hosting two trained literacy dogs today, and they cannot wait to listen as you read them a story! Signup is required for this program. Please sign up in the Children's Room or by calling 978-887-1528.
We will celebrate the end of A Book Grows in Topsfield 2015 with a jazz concert featuring Sinti Rhythm Jazz Quartet, whose repertoire includes standards from the Great American Songbook and lesser-known gems from the ‘20s and ‘30s, at Alfalfa Farm in Topsfield. There will also be a wine-tasting featuring Alfalfa Farm's own apple wine. Tickets required for wine-tasting only ($12pp, 21+). Tickets for the wine-tasting may be purchased at Alfalfa Farm the day of the event, or in advance at the library main circulation desk. This event will be catered by Lantern Hill Catering.
