“Libraries in the Woods” Community Read: Join us and the residents of nine other libraries for a Community Read in March and April of 2019. We will all be reading Stranger in the Woods: The extraordinary story of the last true hermit by Michael Finkel. Copies of the book are available at the library, and we will be offering many programs throughout the month on related themes. For more information, please visit the Libraries in the Woods Website or the Libraries in the Woods Facebook Page.

Library Giving Day is Wednesday, April 10th! We are asking our supporters to consider a donation to the Friends of the Sunderland Public Library on Wednesday, April 10th in honor of Library Giving Day. All donations given on this day will go towards supporting our Summer Reading Program. Donations can be made on the Friends of the Library page on our website.
