Additionally, the Bellingham Librarians will speak to us about some of the more un-usual books that have been banned (not in Boston) and the reasons for it. This is important information as it mostly effects our children and grandchildren when they are in school. Learn what is banned and what you may be able to do about it.
Please sign up at the front desk and let the front desk person know if you will need a tea cup, we have access to some additional china cups. This is a free program.

Finally, we built a raised bed garden last year for our community. This year we are looking for seniors who like to garden but can’t bend to do it anymore, who would like to work in the planning of this year’s garden and take care of it, AND get first pick of the crop. Call the Center and sign up.
