Tuesday, January 28, 3:30pm to 7pm
Service dog Commander and his handler Andrea will be at the library so children can practice reading aloud to him, and he can spend time with library visitors. Reading aloud to dogs can help children gain confidence and skill, and is a great way to experience the fun of reading.

"To Fall in Love" Reading
Wednesday February 12, 6:30m
Cold Comfort Theater brings this intimate reading to Carver Memorial the week of Valentine's Day! All are welcome to hear this wonderful new story by California-based playwright Jennifer Lane and directed by Maggie Goscinski.
Scientists claim that there are 36 questions you can ask to fall in love with anyone, coupled with four minutes of uninterrupted eye contact. But can this exercise save a marriage, splintered by a horrible accident?
“ A wonderfully simple play that deals with the complexities relationships face during times of grief. The playwright does an excellent job asking questions in a natural way that encourages the audience to gauge their own feelings on particular "what ifs." ” -Alex Burkart

We are Now Fine-Free!
Carver Memorial Library has gone fine-free on all our materials, and forgiven any fines on borrowers' accounts. We want everyone to be able to enjoy the library without the barrier of fines. (We will still charge for lost or damaged items.) There is now a "conscience jar" on the counter for those with late books who may want to contribute. We have also extended our regular loan from two weeks to four weeks. We hope this helps people return items on time for others to use. If you have any books or movies sitting around that may be overdue, now is a great time to bring them back!
