Create Cards for The Rainbow Cards Project!

November 8th (Children 7+) & November 15th (Teens 13+)

Want to make a difference? Love to craft and/or write? Join us for an afternoon of winter & holiday card-making to make a difference,  get creative & have fun!

For some LGBTQ+ folks, the holidays can be a difficult and lonely time. We will create cards to send through The Rainbow Cards Project, a nonprofit that sends cards to LGBTQ+ recipients who celebrate a holiday during December. These cards will remind recipients that they are loved—and not alone!

All are invited! Two sessions: one for families, and one for teens (13+).  
Registration very much appreciated.

SPL Veteran's Club Presents

Please join the Veteran's Club on Monday November 18 from 10:00 to 12 noon in the library Community Room as they explore the War of 1812.   This program will begin with the viewing of the Battle of New Orleans.  Discussion to follow. The Battle of New Orleans was significant for the following reasons:
  • The battle was fought after the Americans and British signed the peace treaty in Ghent Belgium.
  • Andrew Jackson was suffering from dysentery at the time of the battle.
  • Pirate Jean Laffite double-crossed the British in order to help the Americans.
  • The famous Kentucky militiamen were ill prepared with clothing and equipment.
  • This campaign was the beginning of steamboat warfare.
  • New Orleans was placed under Martial Law by Old Hickory.
  • A 1500-yard rampart or defensive fortification was paramount to the success of this battle for the Americans.
  • This battle was pivotal in the expulsion of the Federalist Party.

Sharon Community Chorus Holiday Program

Please join us as we celebrate the holidays on Wednesday December 11th, with the Sharon Community Chorus under the direction of Jeanne Lucas.   Program begins at 7:00 PM in the Community Room of the library.  Refreshments!


In conjunction with NIH & NLM, Sharon Public Library presents: A Living Person's Guide to Dying, a multi-part speaker series about death & dying, green burials, digital estate planning, &  more. Although death is an inevitable reality of life, we often delay conversations about the topic until after the fact--a habit that can create unnecessary stress or confusion about our end-of-life wishes. The Library is seeking to launch an honest, open series of discussions around this important topic.

See the full list of events on our website or on our Facebook page.

This project has been funded in whole or in part with federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, under Cooperative Agreement UG4LM012347-01 with the University of Massachusetts, Worcester.
