Twenty three of us arrived to clink glasses with our fellow shift mates. Wonderful refreshments kept us all entertained till past our “quitting time.”
Eight years have passed by very fast, with all of us putting in our weekly shift with nary a pause.
The Aston String Quartet from the Boston Conservatory performed yesterday before a capacity group at the Waban Library Center. The beautiful sounds of Beethoven filled our space to the delight of thirty five people in the audience.”
The Aston String Quartet is composed of students at the Boston Conservatory:
John Castore, Jake Vincel (violins)
Rebecca Miller (viola)
Johnny Mok (cello)
We are excited to present a concert of quartet works at the Waban Library! Works on the concert include:
Prokofiev String Quartet Op. 50 No. 1
Beethoven String Quartet Op. 74 No. 10 “Harp”

Tickets are $15 at the door. Hope to see you there!
The Waban Library can be accessed via the D Line to Riverside, only a few minutes’ walk from the Waban stop.
Fun for the whole Family. We will have our old favorites, including bingo, board games, snacks and prizes.
All are welcome, with a five dollar suggested donation per family.
Thursday night, December 15th, the Waban Library Center was proud to host an author talk by Providence author, Ann Hood.
Ann held 31 listeners captive by her fascinating account of how she was born to be a writer from her earliest years as an avid reader.
Her most current book, “The Book That Matters Most,” depicts a woman whose 25 year marriage has just fallen apart. Her husband has left her, and in her emotional dissaray she finds emotional and intellectual support in a book group.
Thursday night twenty two of our great group of volunteers toasted seven years of uninterrupted service to the greater Waban/Newton community!
How did we do this? Let me count the two key ways – by lifting a glass of champagne, and enjoying a sublime cake created for us by Russo’s, and by seven years of consistent work at the Waban Library Center.
We beheld the newly reorganized music listening room, and children’s area. We met up with fellow volunteers whom we only chance see at these festive occasions. We will look forward to another year of service, including the essential election on November 8th, when the WLC transforms into the polling station for our Wards.
Such a lovely expression of thanks from Connect Africa, whom we hosted last weekend for a crafts fair to benefit Ugandan orphans.
Lynn and I thank you so much for making it so very easy
to have a successful craft sale this year. We appreciate
your generous spirit and the wonderful WLC space.
We made a little over $2,000 in an hour and 45 minutes!!!!
Now that’s a great success in my book! 😀
Best wishes for happy holidays and a healthy and peaceful
