The Friends of the Merrimac Public Library 


"Edwardian Summertime Tea"  with Rita Parisi

Friday, August 10, 2018  @ 6:30pm 

in the Merrimac Library

At the turn of the century people would spend their summers enjoying popular beachside resorts.

Strolling along the promenades, enjoying amusements such as ballroom dancing, bandstand music, vaudeville, circuses, etc.   

Rita, as the character of Mrs. Gordon, will give a first-hand account of what it was like 

to spend a day at the beach in 1908.           

Join us for an entertaining evening with light refreshments. 

Doors open at 5:30PM.  Seating is limited so come early. There is no registration for this program, 
Regretfully doors will be locked when we have reached capacity.


       COMING IN OCTOBER!

                The Merrimac Public Library Has A Telescope!

      A big Thank You to Director Kelly Unsworth for all her work in           getting the  "Adopt a Telescope" program to the Merrimac Library.

   The  progam is supported by The Aldrich Astronomical Society 

and has been funded by The Friends of the Merrimac Public Library. 

The program will allow patrons to borrow the telescope from the Merrimac Public  Library 

as you would a book, CD, DVD etc.

On Thursday, August 16th, from 7:00PM-8:30PM there will be a Library Telescope Workshop 

in the Library meeting room.

It is designed for adults and families with children 8 & older. 

The first part will be a powerpoint presentation on how to use the telescope. 

Weather permitting the presentation will be followed by an outdoor viewing.

A raffle will be held to see who will be the first to borrow the telescope and holds will be placed for any other patrons who are interested.
