Wednesday, February 22nd at 6:00pm: Stuffed Animal Sleepover

What happens when the library closes?

Kids bring their stuffed animals to this special bedtime story time to find out! Their stuffy will spend the night in the library and when at pick up the next day, they will discover just what happens when the lights go out!

For children of all ages, though 3+ is suggested as young children may not want to leave their stuffy behind, and older children may have more fun with this event.

Registration is required, please contact the library to sign up!

Wednesday, Oct 26th at 6 PM — A Night with Local Author, Rosemary Colt

Join us at the library for a night with Rosemary Colt, former Little Compton resident who recently published a memoir. Her book, As Far As I Can See: A Memoir “began as an attempt to write about a beloved husband’s last year and his battle with dementia and illness. But it soon became the life story of two people from different backgrounds who married young but made it work.”
