Next time you are headed to the library, be sure to visit our new deck. It’s the perfect place to curl up with a book, chat with friends, or just enjoy the peace and quite of the library’s back yard.
Our summer bake sale will be held on the steps of the post office on Saturday, August 18 from 9:00 a.m. until all items are sold.
You can help your library in a delicious way by baking, by buying—or both! Donations of baked goods are appreciated and may be brought to the sale that morning. If you want to enjoy some of the best baked goods in town, stop by the post office steps on Saturday morning!
Get to Know Your Neighbors!
Our series, Getting to Know Your Neighbors, continues on Thursday, September 6, at 7:00 p.m.with Norma Goff. Her talk will be followed by Q&A. This event is a fund raiser for the library with a suggested donation of $5.00 (children free).
This series offers opportunities to meet and get to know several of your neighbors at the library. Some are well known beyond Essex, others not so much, but each has made a mark in some profession or field of endeavor as an entrepreneur, artist, public servant or volunteer. We believe their presence among us has contributed to the quality of life of our town and enriched our lives. They will talk about the interests and motivations that inspire their lives, the specific activity or activities that have absorbed their energies and how Essex has inspired or shaped these activities. The series will be held on the first Thursday of May through December. Here are remaining events in the series:
September 6: Norma Goff
October 4: Karen Judge Dalton and Rick Dalton
November 1: Kristin Kimball
December 6: Ron Jackson
