The Beginning and The End

Much of our programming revolves around our ongoing playgroup and story hours in our 5 towns (Erving, Leverett, New Salem, Wendell and Shutesbury). As the school year nears the end some of those ongoing programs do as well. It is the beginning of the summer season and the end of the school year. It leaves some of us wondering what we will be doing on Wednesday mornings or Friday, etc.

Well....we have a solution! Some of the libraries will be continuing a story time. Shutesbury will still have Julie on Monday mornings and Leverett has their summer time story hour person, Georgie, returning again to continue Wednesdays. The library in Erving will be holding special story hour times on Wednesdays as well.

We will also be trying something new this summer. We will be offering Playground Playdates at local playgrounds. All are welcome to join us! We will be distributing the schedule soon. So...as the end of the usual schedule and school arrives....come join us for the beginning of some summer fun! Stay updated by visiting the CNC Website .

Mother's Day

Mother's Day is this weekend.
I always wonder what the day will bring. I am a mother to 3 beautiful children and have been for over 19 years. It is amazing how the time goes by so quickly. Some years I wish for more sleep and some pampering. Other years I wish for more time with my children-to just be with them- life gets too busy. Then, I have to admit....there have been times I have wished for just a little 'me' time....peace and quiet, but when I get it I miss my hub-bub and crazy life that it is hard to enjoy the peace and quiet.
Oh to be a Mom. <3

MotherWoman and the Nields have a wonderful song and video to share with us.

May you find a way to spend the day that fits you.

Happy Mother's Day!
