History Harvest Event: Stone Walls
Saturday, September 23rd 11:30 am – 1:00 pm
By appointment only
Do you have historical materials, on local stone walls, in your collection that you would like to share with the community? Our new series, History Harvest, will focus on collecting and scanning important historical documents from our town’s history. The library will use a scanner to copy photos and documents collected from patrons that will be returned to them immediately. The digital copies will then be made available for viewing on our website.

Each Harvest Event, we will focus on a different subject.  September’s topic will be stone walls, a well-known and loved part of Smithfield’s rural heritage.  Please contact Cassie at 401-949-3630 to schedule an appointment if you have any photographs, documents, or written records related to local stone walls.

Gardening is Murder
with Neal Sanders
Thursday, September 14th at 6:30 pm
Join us for an evening of humor and insight with Neal Sanders, who gardens less from an abiding love of horticulture than for the love of a spouse. Adapted from his widely read blog, “The Principal Undergardener”, Sanders brings a sense of humor to contemplating gardening’s big questions such as “why is it impossible to do just one thing in the garden?” and provides evidence that you should never compute the value of your gardening labor and that wildlife do not watch Disney movies.  Good horticultural advice is dispensed; bad advice is debunked. To register for this event, please call the library at 401-949-3630 or visit the event calendar at www.yourlibrary.ws.
