July 3, 2019 marked a get-to-know-you gathering for the Friends of the Stockbridge Library. New Stockbridge Branch Head Librarian, Sherri McConnell tested Stockbridge’s iconic Rob’s Pizza and enjoyed some fresh picked salad greens from Friends’ President Eileen Conti’s garden. Member Kathy Porzsolt decorated the table with tablecloths and fresh cut flowers and Janine Falk rounded out the menu with scrumptious brownies.
McConnell was eager to learn about the Friends programs, particularly the upcoming August book sale, the rotating art displays (currently displaying art by Carolyn Pascoe), the annual Silent Auction in November and the Holiday Open House.
The Friends and McConnell decided to host a public “Meet & Greet” at the library to introduce Sherri. It is scheduled for Tuesday, August 20, from 4 – 6pm. All are welcome to stop by, say “Hi” and enjoy some light refreshments. The next regular meeting of the Friends of the Stockbridge Library was also set for Thursday, September 19 at 4pm at the library.
