FOLK MUSIC PROGRAM - ANDY & JUDY SING
WHEN : THURSDAY MARCH 2
TIME : 6:30PM
New England natives Andy & Judy Daigle have been singing together since 2009. They wrote their first songs as a duo in 2011. Since then, they have recorded over 80 original songs and produced 7 albums. They continue to compose and produce new music as they find inspiration from the sometimes chaotic, sometimes breathtaking, but always interesting world around us. Andy & Judy do a masterful job of involving the audience in their performances.
Call the library or stop by the front desk after Feb. 1 to register for this program.

THANKS FOR MAKING US SMILE
Recently, Amazon notified charitable organizations that they are discontinuing the AmazonSmile program as of February 20th, which organizations like the Friends of the Fiske benefited from. The Friends would like to thank participants for their support over the years when they shopped at Amazon. You are still able to help the Friends by purchasing books at our ongoing in-library book sales, taking part in the TD Bank Affinity Membership Program, or by making a donation directly to the Friends. Information on all of these items can be found on the library website at https://www.fiskelib.org/about/friends-of-the-fiske.
Don't throw away your used magazines! We would be happy to take your RECENT issues when you are finished (no more than 2-3 months old preferred) to share with others.
The Magazine Swap is located near the DVD’s outside the Homework Center. Magazines should be brought to the Front Desk for staff to put Magazine Swap Label on. You do not need to bring magazines in order to take from the Swap rack and magazines taken from the Swap Rack do not need to be returned.
