Upcoming Special Events

The Unlikely Strummers - Inter-Generational Ukulele Program
Saturday, Sept. 21 -- 10:30am
"We're a big happy family of ukulele players from across southern Massachusetts and northern Rhode Island.  Our group began in 2017, and we've been strumming our way around the region ever since!   We've played at events from festivals to farmers markets to movie nights"  
This is definitely not your great-grandfather's ukulele music!  The ukulele is a surprisingly versatile instrument that's suited to almost any genre, from 1920s "standards" to early rock-n-roll, and from country to contemporary top 40s hits.  You never know what we might play next!
The Unlikely Strummers provide family-friendly music that will make you want to sing - or dance - along! No matter what your age, we'll leave you smiling!
This program is supported with funds from the Friends of the Fiske.
Program is free but canned-good donations will be gratefully accepted for the Wrentham Food Pantry.  Sign up at the circulation desk or call 508-384-5440.

SPECIAL MASK WORKSHOP
Sat. Oct. 26th -- 1:00-3:00pm
Grade 4 and UP including Adults!

Ugglie Bugglies, an exciting, innovative mask workshop with master mask-maker Eric Bornstein.  *No wet glue or paint *Can be worn over glasses!  * Masks will be ready to wear!
We will make whimsical creature masks using strips of pipe insulation foam, colored & patterned duct tapes, chenille and sparkle stems. The basic form creates goggle eyes, a long “stinger” (hence, bugglies), decorative antennae, and adjustable straps. More daring students can create more complex forms, headpieces, and faces with the principles taught in the workshop. The finished masks are comfortable, lightweight, and one-of-a-kind! Perfect for parties, workshops, and festivals.  Registration required, sign up at the circulation desk or call 508-384-5440.
Program is free but canned-good donations will be gratefully accepted for the Wrentham Food Pantry.  This program is supported with a grant from the SWEATT FUND.

She went to school like you, and became a “Therapy dog" and a" Reading Buddy" She is a happy gentle pup with velvet ears and polka dot spots. She loves the Library and loves to hear stories about animals (especially bunnies!) She has many jobs including visiting the elderly and cheering up college students during exam periods but her favorite time is spending time with children who read her stories. Lily can’t wait to meet you!

Beth Winmill has been a resident in Wrentham for 53 years and her children actually used the original library and went to elementary school here. She recently retired as a Professor of Nursing at CCRI and is enjoying her leisure time…especially with Lily in various venues.
