The Friends of the Woonsocket Harris Public Library are holding a Holiday Book Sale from December 4th through December 9th. The sale will be held in the center aisle of the library during normal business hours. There will be an array of gently used items for sale at nominal prices and a buck-a-bag sale for paperbacks. Fill a plastic store bag (we provide) with paperbacks and only pay $1.00. There will also be DVDs, CDs and VHS tapes for purchase. Some items are marked with special prices and are still a great bargain. For more information or if you'd like to volunteer at the sale, please call the library at 401-769-9044.

At the White House today, Sanders was asked about a remark by FBI Director Chris Wray that Robert Mueller's [[ MULL-ers ]] Russia investigation is not a witch hunt. He made that comment in a Senate hearing today and had said so previously.        Tesla CEO Elon Musk is revealing that a disgruntled employee tried to hurt the electric car company.
