Our Road to the Oscar movie nights have begun. Every Thursday in February, starting at 6pm, we will be screening an Acadamy Nominated film. This Thursday, Feb. 11th, we will be watching Bridge of Spies. It's a dramatic thriller set against the backdrop of a series of historic events.

Coloring books are no longer just for kids. If you have walked through the book section of any store recently you will probably have noticed Adult coloring books on display. The Mill Pond Library in Kingston will be holding an “Adult Coloring” class on Tuesday, Feb. 2nd at 6pm. Kathy Sletten, who has jumped on the coloring bandwagon, will be talking about materials, tips, and techniques that she uses when coloring. And then you’ll have a chance to try them out.
We hope you all had a wonderful and safe holiday! We will be open our regular hours starting January 4! Hope to see you then!
