  • Holiday Sale Benefits Library

    To the Editor:

    This past weekend the Friends of the C.H. Booth Library sponsored our 11th annual Holiday Sale to benefit the town library. The sale was a huge success thanks to the many people who came from near and far to find gifts for their friends and family!

  • Library Super Heroes

    The C.H. Booth Library is haunted by super heroes this Halloween, from Wonder Woman to Batman. As might be expected, each one has the power to help patrons find the perfect DVD or book, or to master new technology. Fortunately forNewtown, these powers will be left with library staff for future use. SHAZAM!

  • The Top of the Mountain

    Newtown is beginning to feel a little like Wild Kingdom to me. In addition to the usual coyote and deer sightings, I am hearing about some more unusual activity. First, there are the bobcats on Scudder Road. Then there is the swan on Route 302.

  • The Library Friends Say ‘Yes’

    To the Editor:

     Yes! Our generous neighbors  swung by the library on Sunday to donate books, CDs, DVDs and other items for the various book sales sponsored by the Friends of the C.H. Booth Library.  Thank you.  You—and the weather—provided crucial support!

  • A New Adventure In Store For Sterns

    For some, the passage of time in this town is brief. Others settle in, leaving an imprint of their lives over the course of many years. Julie and Pete Stern fall into the latter category, many who know them would say. Through community interaction and support, they have quietly interlaced their fingers with those of Newtown people and organizations for the nearly half century that they have called this town “home.”
