Each class will be a fun, learning experience for your little ones!

Are you a retired Teacher?

A volunteer is needed to help a 7-year-old understand math concepts.  For 1-2 hours a week you could make a real difference in this child’s present and future education!  The schedule is flexible.  Please contact Susan Leto, Volunteer Coordinator at 508-839-4649 or sleto@cwmars.org

Diary of a Wimpy Kid: OLD SCHOOL Book Sale!

Posted by switham on

Author Jeff Kinney is back with another story about our favorite character Greg Heffley!

Summary: Life was better in the old days. Or was it? That’s the question Greg Heffley is asking as his town voluntarily unplugs and goes electronics-free. But modern life has its conveniences, and Greg isn’t cut out for an old-fashioned world. With tension building inside and outside the Heffley home, will Greg find a way to survive? Or is going “old school” just too hard for a kid like Greg?

Buy your copy for $10 at the Grafton Public Library while supplies last. Get a great book and support your Library!
