Library Corner: Springvale

by Springvale Library Staff

LL Bean has generously donated six pairs of snowshoes to our ever-gowning Library of Things.  When flurries fly, come and check out a pair to enjoy the outdoors.  We have two children, two youth, and two adult pairs to lend!

Our Holiday Tea was a great success with 63 attendees enjoying some winter refreshment on the patio.

Keep an eye out in the New Year for our upcoming author visits, crafts, children’s programs, and a brand new book club!
