Let it snow!

Winter is almost here and the snow has already covered the town. We wish everyone a warm and safe season. It's a good time to cozy up with a warm drink and a good book, curl up and watch a movie, make crafts and if you're an adventurist, its time to explore the snowy landscape.

Here at the library we have a weekly winter craft for kids. Stop by to see the beautiful garland made by our wonderful patrons last week. This week we will be making snow flakes. We also have many great craft books for all ages to bring home.

The new book club book has arrived: The Homecoming of Samuel Lake by Jenny Wingfield
The book club will be meeting this Thursday to discuss: Kitchen Confidential by Anthony Bourdain

The Monthly Photo Project for November is on display now with many beautiful bridges shots from all over.
December's the topic is lights and is due January 1st. We look forward to seeing your work.

Our Cheshire Children's Museum passes were just renewed by the Friends of The Library! Check out the events they have going on.

Food for Fines

The Davis Public Library is a no-fine library because we believe that it is better to give a little, than to take at all. We ask that you donate non-perishable food items to the library to be give to people in need in our community. You can donate for your late books or just to give a hand! Take a look in your pantry and find those things you never see in there, that someone else could use. Donations will benefit the Community Kitchen of Keene, NH.

A big thanks for all the help thus far!
