In celebration of the Bard’s 450th birthday, we are hosting the first annual 24-hour marathon reading of select works from Shakespeare. The event will take place on the steps of the James Blackstone Memorial Library beginning at 12:00 noon on Friday April 25, and running through 12:00 noon on Saturday, April 26. This is a picnic-friendly event featuring almost 100 volunteers reading Shakespeare’s greatest works nonstop to honor the bard. Help bring Shakespeare’s words into the voices, bodies and imaginations of our hometown community–sign up to read today!
The library will open late on Friday, March 21 so that all staff may participate in our annual in-service training. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause.
Tax help is available through the AARP Foundation Tax-Aide program at the Blackstone Library. Appointments are scheduled on Mondays and Thursdays between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. Sign ups are required; please call 203-488-1441, ext. 318 or stop by the Reference desk to schedule an appointment.
