• Crafternoon - Jewelry Making - 2/22 @ 3:00 PM


    Jewelry Making Crafternoon FlyerSchool Vacation Week? No problem! Join the Southborough Library on Thursday, February 22 at 3:00 PM for an afternoon of craft creation - a little thing we like to call a Crafternoon! Our friend Mandy Roberge will be visiting us once again. This time, she will be focusing on making jewelry like necklaces and earrings.

    Young patrons are welcome to join, but since sharp materials are being used, the event is retricted to Ages 8 & Up. Program will be held upstairs, and is first-come, first-served dependent on the amount of materials we have available for creation. Can't make this Crafternoon? Mandy will be coming back in April.

    Nominations are now open for the fourth annual Peggy Tuttle Award for Library Service Distinction. This yearly honor recognizes a library staff member, volunteer, or community member that has dedicated a significant amount of their time into making library services better for the entire Southborough community. Whether they lead a monthly book group, serve on the board of The Friends of the Southborough Library, or suggest what to read next through reader's advisory service, this is a time to celebrate an individual who makes the Southborough Library the unique and wonderful place that it is. Nominations close March 17, 2018.

    Please feel free to print out and use the official nomination form, or e-mail library director Ryan Donovan at rdonovan@southboroughma.com with a 1-2 paragraphs explaining who you are nominating and why.

This award is in rememberance of deceased staff member Peggy Tuttle who worked at the Southborough Library for over 30 years.
