Dedication of Anita Smith's Memorial Garden

On Saturday, June 9 the dedication of Anita Smith's Memorial Garden will be held at the Library at 1 pm. Located on the west side of the library, the garden was conceived and created by more than twenty-five women who wish to remember Anita Smith. She was an avid gardener and reader, as well as a library volunteer and a friend to many.

Additional contributions are welcome and should be made to the Friends of the Edwards Library in Anita's name.  All are welcome.

June Book Club discussion date change

This month, our Library Book Club will be reading "Bossypants" by Tina Fey. Much like Ms. Fey, her book is "short, messy and impossibly funny" according to Amazon.com and we think it is a laugh-out-loud funny memoir that nearly everyone can relate to in one way or another.

You may pick up a copy of this book at the Main Desk.Our book discussion evening meeting will be for June only on Thursday, June 28 at 6:30 pm. This change will be only for the month of June.  New members are always welcome. Join us for good company and fun conversation.

Another Language Book Signing

Author Jeanne Braham will be reading from her new book "Another Language: portraits of assistance dogs and their people" at the library on Thursday, May 24 at 6:30 -7:30 pm.    Photographs in the book have been photographed by local Southampton resident, Robert Floyd. 

The book profiles sixteen people who have worked with the NEADS/Dogs For Deaf and Disabled Americans program in north-central Massachusetts and who tell their own stories in their own words. In a respectful, compassionate and compelling way, the stories are brought to life of those who use the dogs, and those who train them as well as others who work with NEADS human clients.

All are welcome to this program, no registration is required.
