Painters Wanted

GOOD NEWS: The playroom is getting a makeover! 

BAD NEWS:  We don't have an army of elves doing all the work for us. 

Do you have a little time to spare on Saturday, October 19th? Why not join us for an hour or two from 11 a.m. to around 3 p.m. (we'll see how it goes) as we help paint the NSPC nursery (the room where we meet for playgroup). 

Talk to Kristine, me (Vanessa), or any Family Club board member if you're interested. You can always email us too at: 

We hope to see you in your finest painting clothes!

Vote: September Book Club Selections

Hi book club members (and anyone else interested in joining us later this month)!

I'm going to try something new this year. I'll put up a few book selections with links to their reviews. Then I'll place a poll in the sidebar of this site to see which books you're leaning towards.

If you have a suggestion for next month, please either write it in the comments section of this post or email me.

And because everyone's doin' the Doodle, we'll schedule a meeting with a Doodle Poll. I'll post the meeting date on the website and Facebook.

So here are September selections (all available at the library). Please vote for your favorite using the poll in the sidebar over to the right. Thanks!

The Expats, Chris Pavone
The White Tiger, Chris Pavone
The Spy Who Loved, Clare Mulley
Moonwalking with Einstein: The Art and Science of Remembering Everything, Joshua Foer
The Cookbook Collector, Allegra Goodman
