Kids Book Club!
The next WLC Kids Book Club will be on TUESDAY, April 25, AT 6:30 PM. The book will be CRENSHAW by Katherine Applegate. It is a fabulous book about a family falling on hard financial times, and it is told from the child’s perspective. Crenshaw is the boy’s imaginary friend who reappears to help him work through the tough times.
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”
Haydn String Quartet Op. 76 No. 4 “Sunrise”
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.

to have a successful craft sale this year. We appreciate
your generous spirit and the wonderful WLC space.

Movie Night Returns:
In December, which is just around the corner, we have Movie Night for families with children ages 5 – 10 ( and beyond!)
Saturday, December 10th at 4:00 pm we will show “Finding Dory,” popcorn et al.
A note from Alice Jacobs, our Volunteer Director.
“If you, like me, have found the debates and everything else surrounding this contentious election year abrasive, then you have a potential remedy at the library.
Next Monday night at 7:45 we are very pleased to welcome back to the WLC Dr. Christina Hardway, who will lead a one hour meditation session.
There is no charge for this relaxing workshop, and Prof. Hardway (she is Prof. of Psychology and Chair of the Psychology Department at Middlesex College) will answer questions afterwards.”
Newton resident Christina teaches a variety of techniques to help us achieve a less stressed lifestyle. This free 90 minute workshop is open to any adult who would like an introduction to the techniques of mindfulness and meditation. She will lead us in a few exercises and will invite group discussions and questions. You will leave the workshop with a better sense of mindfulness techniques and information about further resources to explore mindfulness in more depth.
Donations to your all‐volunteer WLC are always welcome!
