Happy New Year! Start off the New Year helping a family in need. Spencer Public Library is a donation drop for CAASA and the Family Crisis Center for victims of domestic violence. Items you donate will be used while victims are seeking refuge or working toward gaining independence. The library will collect personal hygiene items such as shampoo and conditioner, styling products and tools, soap, body wash, lotion, feminine hygiene products, baby wipes, diaper ointment, tweezers, q-tips, nail clippers, deodorant, first-aid supplies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, contact solution, socks, underwear, household cleaning supplies, gas cards, supermarket cards, and gift cards. Victims of domestic violence often need supplies for going into emergency hotel placement, shelter, or starting over after leaving an abusive partner. Your support is greatly appreciated!
Why not start the New Year right by volunteering for a local organization? In February, Spencer Public Library will be hosting a Volunteer Fair where organizations from our community will talk to you about the opportunities they can provide. Come to the library for a one on one conversation to find the best place to suit your needs. Learn a new skill, help your community, and meet new people! Organizations that will be at the Volunteer Fair are: Volunteer Network of Clay County, SAAC, CAASA, Love Takes Root, Clay County Fair Association, Spencer Public Library Friends Group
The library will be showing the movie Maudie starring Sally Hawkins and Ethan Hawke. Maudie is a film biography and based on the true story of when a Nova Scotian folk artist falls in love with a fishmonger while working for him as a live-in housekeeper. A wonderful movie that shouldn’t be missed!
Sign-up to read the thriller, The Taking of Pelham 123, by John Godey. What starts as a normal day on the New York City subway becomes a race against time when a commuter train is hijacked. We will watch the 1974 movie in February starring Walter Mathau and Robert Shaw. Copies of the book provided.
