  • Missing Comfort Quilt Stymies Paying It Forward

    The Comfort Quilt is one of 250 quilts received by the Town of Newtown, following 12/14. The plaque that accompanied its arrival in Newtown tells a special story.

    Created in 2001 by the children of St Hilary Catholic School in Fairlawn, Ohio, the 35-block quilt was first presented to the students of St James Catholic Grammar School in Red Bank, N.J. after 9/11, as a tangible display of the thoughts and prayers sent their way.

  • Taking A Chainsaw To The Flower Garden

    To the Editor:

    Forty years ago, I moved to Newtown.  I soon discovered the treasured resources, and the friendly and dedicated personnel of the C. H Booth  Library.  When I retired five years ago, my activity at the library increased as I became a member of several monthly reading groups.  Over time, I borrowed numerous books and DVDs from the extensive collection. 

  • Library Board Needs To Reconsider

    To the Editor:

    We have lived in Newtown since 1968, raised two children here, and I taught 33 years in our school system. The Cyrenius Booth Library has been a constant source of learning, fine reading, pleasure and friendship. Now that my husband and I are retired, the library seems like an extension of our home.
