Support the Friends!

Friends Membership Renewal: October has arrived, and that means it's the start of a new membership year for the Friends of the Topsfield Library. The Friends are an active and dynamic group of people committed to supporting library programs and activities. Money raised from memberships and fundraisers is used to purchase museum passes, fund library programs for children, teens, and adults, and provide funds for items outside the library's ordinary budget. To join the Friends, fill out a membership form and bring it to the main desk of the library along with the membership dues. Membership dues are $25 for a family or $10 for a senior household.

"River Road, Topsfield" Art Prints: We are pleased to announce that local artist Meg Black is now offering prints of her painting "River Road, Topsfield" with 25% of proceeds going to the Friends of the Topsfield Library. You may have admired this piece hanging on the wall behind the circulation desk. Stop by the library to see a display of matted prints and fill out an order form!

Gardening is Murder
Thursday, October 30th
7:00pm

Presented by mystery author Neal Sanders, "Gardening Is Murder" is a "husband’s point of view" of gardening. It is filled with humor and insight from someone who gardens less from an abiding love of horticulture than for the love of a spouse. Good horticultural advice is dispensed, bad advice is debunked. Patrons will leave with a better appreciation of what is going on in the mind of their helpmates.
