The Children’s Room of the Fiske Public Library will follow Wrentham’s Public Health masking guidelines, and will adjust accordingly. Currently (April 16, 2022), these guidelines recommend that young children (ages 2 - 5) wear masks while in a group setting.
Help Support the Summer Reading Program
We are writing this letter to ask your support for our summer reading program at the Fiske Public Library. This summer Wrentham children and teens (ages 0-18) and their families are invited to participate in the 2022 Statewide Summer Library Program: Read Beyond the Beaten Path, sponsored by the Massachusetts Library System, the Boston Bruins, and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. We are asking library patrons, local businesses, banks, and civic groups to donate items (gift certificates, raffle items, school supplies, coupons etc) to encourage Wrentham families to read together. We will use these as reading incentive prizes. We hope this will not only be good advertising for local merchants but also FUN for Wrentham readers. We will be happy to post names of supporters at the library, on social media, our website and in our monthly newsletter.
YOUR SUPPORT IS GREATLY APPRECIATED!!! Thank you in advance.
Sara DelPriore, Children's Librarian
ELLEN HENRY – MEDIUMSHIP DEMONSTRATION
WHEN : SATURDAY MAY 14
TIME : 1:00PM
Ellen Henry is returning once again to Fiske Library! Last time she was here the participants raved about her program. A medium is someone who receives communication from the souls of those who have moved on to the next chapter – your loved ones in Spirit – and delivers those messages to their loved ones in he physical world.
In this program Ellen begins with a discussion of what mediumship is and how she receives messages. She then performs a demonstration for the group with audience participation (attendance does not guarantee you will receive a reading)
The program lasts about an hour. Sign-up up by calling 508-384-5440 x2 or stop by the Circulation desk.

Christians and Muslims lived peacefully together for years in this small Lebanese village, but animosities begin to build among the men as a result of slights and misunderstandings.

When tragedy strikes, the women find themselves driven to make a deeply personal sacrifice for the sake of peace
