Our regular patrons may be seeing an unfamilar face staffing the Library for the month of February. Please extend a welcome to Kathryn, who will be the Library clerk staffing all library hours for the month of February, while the director is on a vacation/family leave of absence.

Copies of On Agate Hill, the title for the March 11, 2016 book discussion are now available for borrowing.

The Sharon Springs Free Library is participating in the My Free Taxes Program, under the Vita Program, using H & R block. All filers with an income under $62,000 may file on line at no charge. There is also no fee for a print out of the files. While the library is one location to participate in the program, anyone with on-line access may go to to file.

Our next book discussion:

Join us and discuss On Agate Hill by Lee Smith
March 11, 6-7 pm at the Library.

Books will be available to check out next week.

"A dusty box discovered in the wreckage of a once prosperous plantation on Agate Hill in North Carolina contains the remnants of an extraordinary life: diaries, letters, poems, songs, newspaper clippings, court records, marbles, rocks, dolls, and bones. It's through these treasured mementos that we meet Molly Petree.
Spanning half a century, On Agate Hill follows Molly’s passionate, picaresque journey through love, betrayal, motherhood, a murder trial―and back home to Agate Hill under circumstances she never could have imagined."
