Get to Know Your Neighbors!
Our series, Getting to Know Your Neighbors, continues on Thursday, November 1 with Kristin Kimball. 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:
November 1: Kristin Kimball
December 6: Ron Jackson
