Saturday, June 6, starting at 9AM! Come one, come all to our annual book sale organized by the Friends of the Library. Help support the Whipple Free Library’s special events, special purchases and museum pass program. The library is currently accepting donations of books in good condition. Save the date!!
Monday, June 8th at 7 PM at the Community Church. The New Boston Community Church and Perspectives Committee of the Library invite you to a conversation with Milad and Manar, a husband and wife from Palestine. They are Palestinian Christians who are living their lives under Israeli military occupation in the town of Bethany. They are currently on a visit to the United States to share their experiences and learn about our country. Over the past few years they started an organization known as VACA– Vision Association for Culture and Arts–a safe place for children and youth under occupation (www.vaca-ps.org). It is a non-profit, non-political and non-religious organization that serves four villages in the suburbs of Jerusalem. Through their work they share a vision of peace, nonviolence and human rights in a most troubled area of the world. While meeting with various groups in the US they hope to form a network of support for their work. This program is free and open to the public. Refreshments will be served. For more information call the library at 487-3391 or Woody Woodland at 487-3643.
