Steve Blunt and Marty Kelley
This great duo will sing fun songs on a variety of musical instruments.
The show, sponsored by the Durham, Lee, and Madbury libraries, will take place at the Durham Public Library.   Thanks to the Friends of the Madbury Library for helping to make this concert possible!

Story Time Changes for the New Year
Lapsit, Preschool, and Afterschool, too! This month we've made a few adjustments and additions to our schedule.  Our Monday and Thursday 10:30 story times will no longer be identical.  Mondays will be intended for toddlers and preschoolers, while Thursdays will be geared to younger children, lapsit through two.   And then Wednesdays at 4:00, we’ll have an after-school story hour. 

FRIENDS of the Madbury Library NEWS
Friends of the Madbury Library meet on the second Thursday of the month at 7 p.m.  Our next meeting is Thursday, February 11th, 2016.  Open to all! The group will discuss future plans, membership, as well as fundraising ideas.

Read to Rosa Will Be Back Monday, March 7
Perfect for kids who love both dogs and reading
Sign up today for this popular program for new and emerging readers, which takes place the first Monday of each month during the school year.   Rosa is a gentle English Setter who, accompanied by her owner Marsha Barden, loves to sit on the floor and listen to stories.  (Sometimes Rosa's sons, either Grover or Louie, come to the library instead.)  Each child may sign up for a 20-minute time slot between 3:00 and 5:00.  Give us a call, send an e-mail, or stop in to register.

Note:  Due to the popularity of this program, spaces fill up quickly.  We hope to add a second Monday afternoon so look for more information soon.
Writing Group
Our next meeting will be Monday, March 7, 5:15 pm
Interested in writing? Join the Madbury Library Writing Group! Whether you write memoir, poetry or fiction, this a wonderful opportunity to share your work and receive input from other group members. Newcomers are always welcome to join the group for a fun, low-key and rewarding experience! We meet the second Monday of every month, September through June, at 5:15 pm.
