Read Local With Our Local Literary Festival & Market, Saturday at Maud Marks

     It’s the Holiday Season!  Maud Marks Library wants to help out with your last minute gift shopping.  Do you have a relative you just can’t think about what to buy them?  Do you have a child who would give anything for a new book?  We have you covered with our 3rd annual Local Literary Festival and Market on December 3 at 12:30-4:30.

Spring Branch-Memorial Library--The Page Turners

Dashing through the snowTitle to be discussed: Dashing through the snow by Mary Higgins Clark and Carol Higgins Clark.  Date of meeting: Tuesday, December 13, 6:30 pm.  Summary: "In the picturesque village of Branscombe, New Hampshire, the townsfolk are preparing for the first Festival of Joy. The night before the festival begins, a group of employees at the local market learn that they have won $160 million in the lottery. One of their co-workers, Duncan, decided at the last minute, on the advice of a pair of crooks masquerading as financial advisers, not to play. Then he goes missing. A second winning lottery ticket was purchased in the next town, but the winner hasn't come forward. Could Duncan have secretly bought it? Alvirah Meehan, the amateur sleuth, and private investigator Regan Reilly have arrived in Branscombe for the festival. They are just the people to find out what is amiss. As they dig beneath the surface, they find that life in Branscombe is not as tranquil as it appears."

Toys for Tots Holiday Drive

Toys for TotsAs we celebrate various holidays, let us show the spirit of the season by helping others.  One of the ways to do it is to participate in the Toys for Tots drive and drop off new unwrapped toys at our library by Friday, December 16.  Marine Corps Reserve volunteers will pick up and deliver the gifts to children in need. 

Spread the cheer, share the happiness!
