New Fine Policy
Effective January 2022 the Fiske Library Trustees voted to go “fine free.” This does not apply to the “Library of Things”or Museum Passes (both $5.00 a day overdue), nor does it apply to LOST ITEMS or items from other libraries. Rental Books will continue to be $1 a week with walk-in renewal allowed and .25 a day overdue.
We will continue accepting “food” as a donation, BUT NOT FOR FINES.
Artificial Intelligence is an exciting and interesting new technology which is already impacting our lives! The Library has a set of games featuring some AI Activities located in the Children's Room created by Sheela Pandit, KP Class of 2022! Please fill out the survey in the game box as well!
The Friends of the Fiske are pleased to announce that they will once again award a scholarship to a graduating high school senior. The senior must be a Wrentham resident, but does not need to attend high school in Wrentham. The recipient will be chosen based on an essay. Interested students should check with their Guidance office for application information and deadlines. All applications are collected by KPHS – students who do not attend KPHS should contact KP guidance for the full list of scholarships and requirements. Please do not contact the Friends or the Library directly.
THANK YOU TO THE SOHOANNO GARDEN CLUB AND THE LANDSCAPE COMMITTEE FOR THE VALENTINE GNOMES DECORATING THE LIBRARY! COME CHECK THEM OUT!

Foreign Film - DEPARTURES
NEXT DATE: Wednesday January 26
LENGTH : 2HR 10 MIN
Daigo Kobayashi is a devoted cellist in an orchestra that has just been dissolved and now finds himself without a job. Daigo decides to move back to his old hometown with his wife to look for work and start over. He answers a classified ad entitled "Departures" thinking it is an advertisement for a travel agency only to discover that the job is actually for a "Nokanshi" or "encoffineer," a funeral professional who prepares deceased bodies for burial and entry into the next life. While his wife and others despise the job, Daigo takes a certain pride in his work and begins to perfect the art of "Nokanshi," acting as a gentle gatekeeper between life and death, between the departed and the family of the departed. The film follows his profound and sometimes comical journey with death as he uncovers the wonder, joy and meaning of life and living
