A very big thank you to Ron Morin for covering our air conditioners. He designed enclosures to stop the cold air from coming into the library. He constructed out of wood, painted and insulated two covers for the windows. This is really making a big difference in the library!!

Please return your books that are recently due back. During the month of December Ricker Memorial Library will excuse overdue fines on currently borrowed (but late) materials in exchange for non-perishable food items. Bring your overdue books, tapes, videos, DVDs, whatever to the Circulation Desk along with your contribution of packaged, non-perishable foods and we will wipe the slate clean. The entire community will benefit from your generosity. Thank you

Everyone is encouraged to contribute, even if you don’t have overdue library books.

A very Heartfelt thank you goes to Jim Porter for painting the downstairs community room. The room now looks so much more inviting, bright and clean.

Join us and learn how to make a fall leaf light from a mason jar! Tuesday, November 10th 3:00 – 4:30pm Call to make reservations.. We hope to see you here.
