Until recently forgotten and obscure, Frances Drake was a courageous fighter for the cause to end slavery. Even more unsettling to many of her Leominster, Massachusetts contemporaries was her ardent stand for gender equality. Not only did Mrs. Drake welcome to her home some of the most famous abolitionists, but she helped free the first fugitive captured in New England under the new fugitive slave law of 1850. Why then has she been largely ignored for nearly a century while her hometown celebrates the folklore of Johnny Appleseed? Come and learn how these two very different stories were developed and communicated through the years.

We received a notice that the IRS will drastically reduce the number of forms they are sending this year, and that they will not be sending instruction booklets this year at all. We will post more information as it is received.

Since 1968, AARP Tax-Aide volunteers have helped nearly 50 million low- to middle-income taxpayers, many of whom are aged 60 or older. Tax-Aide volunteers (IRS Certified) are trained to assist with filing the 1040 Form and the more standard of the schedules, including Schedules A and B. Electronic filing (e-filing) is offered at the Wadleigh Memorial Library site, with no charge to the taxpayer. E-filing ensures more accurate tax returns and faster processing of tax refunds.

Tuesday February 3, 2015

7:00 PM until 8:15 PM


Our selection this month is Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline

“Penobscot Indian Molly Ayer is close to ‘aging out’ out of the foster care system. A community service position helping an elderly woman clean out her home is the only thing keeping Molly out of juvie and worse…. As she helps Vivian sort through her possessions and memories, Molly learns that she and Vivian aren’t as different as they seem to be. A young Irish immigrant orphaned in New York City, Vivian was put on a train to the Midwest with hundreds of other children whose destinies would be determined by luck and chance. Molly discovers that she has the power to help Vivian find answers to mysteries that have haunted her for her entire life–answers that will ultimately free them both. Rich in detail and epic in scope, Orphan Train by Christina Baker Kline is a powerful novel of upheaval and resilience, of unexpected friendship, and of the secrets we carry that keep us from finding out who we are.”–from publisher’s description

Copies are available at the Main Desk. Newcomers always welcome.
