Bremen Library Newsletter


Dear Bremen Library Patrons,

Happy November. Summer became late fall oh, so quickly! There is a whole slew of new reads to be had this month, as well as a handful of Rachel Field classics that were purchased after her biographer, Robin Clifford Wood, gave a wonderful program at the library and folks requested they become a part of our collection. So, yes, some things old become new again, and some things are, well, simply shiny and brand new! Enjoy, and Happy Thanksgiving.

Cundy’s Harbor Library holds a now-and-again program called The Repair Cafe, where folks who need something fixed bring in their item and other folks who like to tinker and fix things, fix them! This is definitely wonderful homegrown and serviceable fun - if you have any interest in participating in a program like this here in Bremen, please let me know and I will get folks organized! (Contact info is at the top of newsletter.)


One more thing! There was some interest in forming “The Second Childhood Book Club, in which the group chooses old favorites from their youth, or perhaps a juvenile title never read but that seems interesting now, to read and chat about with one another. Thinking this could be “a thing” in the new year. Please let me know if you are interested!
