News & Notes from Blanding Library


Children’s Book Sale March 13-15
It’s time for March Madness again at the Blanding – we’re talking about the annual used book sale of children’s books, which will be held during library hours (10 a.m. to 8 p.m.) on Tues., Wed. and Thurs. March 13-15. Gently used books will be sold for $3 a bag (you can bring your own bags or pick up one at the library.) Since this is a book sale for children, we ask that adults be accompanied by a child when coming to the book sale.

Yoga for Families March 9
The next session of Yoga for Families will be held Friday March 9 at 10 a.m. This is a free parent-child wellness event for children up through age 8. It is sponsored by the PACE CCW CFCE Program with funding from the Mass. Dept. of Early Education and Care. For more information contact Jocelyn at 508-984-3559 or

Coming Up at the Blanding

  • The next knitting group meetings (open to all levels of knitters) will be on Thursdays March 8 and 22 at 6:30 p.m.
