MPL Has Received a CLiF Grant
New books have arrived!
We have received a CLiF Rural Library grant for the 2017-2018 school year.  CLiF, the Children's Literacy Foundation, seeks to create a culture of literacy in the communities it serves and encourage everyone to read for pleasure.   Our new books ($2,000 worth!) are now on display in the Children's Room.  We hope you'll come in and take a look!

A Special Art Exhibit for October and November
The Road Not Taken: Artistic Interpretations of the Poetry of Robert Frost
This exhibit, which features three Derry-area artists--Ingeborg Seaboyer, Judy Krassowski, and Corinne Dodge-- contains personal interpretations of Frost's poems.  Images in pen and ink, watercolor, acrylics, and oils accompany selected verses that were the source of inspiration.

Daytime Book Group
Next meeting is Monday, October 23, 3:00
The group will read Graham Moore's The Last Days of Night.  This novel, set in New York City during the last part of the 19th century, tells the story of the fierce legal battle between Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse over the question of who actually controls electricity, which is just becoming available to the public.  This novel is part legal thriller, part tour of a fascinating period of American history.  Join us!

Evening Book Group
Monday, November 6, 7:00 PM
Join us Monday, November 6, to discuss Killers of the  Flower Moon by David Grann.  Subtitled "The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI," this story begins in Osage County, Oklahoma during the 1920s.  Just after oil was discovered on their tribal lands, members of the Osage Indian nation became some of the richest people in the world.  Then, when twenty-four tribal members were gunned down in cold blood, the relatively new FBI was given the case. This work of historical research reads like a crime novel.
