Books Seeking a Good Home – these are for keeps!

Posted by switham on

The Library has boxes of gently used books looking for a good home that are a result of weeding the collection to make room for new titles. Titles include adult and young adult fiction and nonfiction.  The books are free, and you may take all or just some. The books are currently stored in boxes, so it will require some time to sort through and see what titles are there.

If interested, please email Susan Leto at letos@graftonlibrary.org or call 508-839-4649 xt 1108.

While the formal story times are on a brief hiatus, please join us for one of our age appropriate Open Play Times!

Open Play is an unstructured time for children to socialize with their peers and keep up with their normal storytime routine.  This will not be a formal storytime, but there will be familiar elements like bubbles and music in addition to age-specific toys. This program is drop-in. If Grafton Public Schools are delayed or closed, this program will be cancelled. The Children’s Room is closed to the public for the duration of the Open Play program.

To keep our groups consistent, we ask that you limit your attendance to the appropriate age group:

  • PRESCHOOL– ages 3.5-5

Tuesdays @ 10:00am-11:00am

February 6th, February 27th, and March 6th.

 

  • TODDLERS -Ages Walking-3.5

Wednesdays @ 10:00am-11:00am

February 7th, February 28th, and March 7th.

 

  • BABIES– Ages Newborn-Walking
