FRIEND'S OPEN HOUSE ~ The Friends of the Library invite you to stop in after hours on Friday, December 6th any time from 6:00 to 8:00pm for some cocoa or cider and a treat to go along with. Mr.Chip Hill will be here with his guitar and a repertoire of holiday songs to entertain us. The LitKnitters will have the warm and cozy items they have been knitting for sale ~ and Evie Dewar will have fabulous photo notecards available as well. Proceeds from the sale of all of these items will go the library. We look forward to seeing you! NOTE: This event takes place on the evening of the town-wide Carol Sing. Inclement weather will postpone the caroling to Sunday, December 8th; however, the Friends will not host the open house on that date.

More than a century ago Sophia H. and William H.H. Weston bequeathed to the town of Sandwich a sum of money to purchase land and erect a library building. This year marks the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the Weston Memorial Library building. As we enter our second century of service to the community, we invite you to continue the legacy of philanthropic support and community participation begun by the Westons. We need your help to keep our beloved library the vital institution is was meant to be. Your $100 contribution to the Second Century Club will ensure that the Sandwich Public library continues to offer a multitude of services to enrich, entertain and educate you, your family and the community.
