This Thursday, January 18th, join Neighbors United women for an inspiring discussion on the climate and how it is impacting our health and our families.

Wellesley resident and MGH physician, Dr. Regina LaRocque will discuss the health effects of natural gas infrastructure and the need to move to clean energy sources for Massachusetts. Wellesley College’s Dr. Alden Griffith will provide a framework for taking action in the face of uncertainty and Mothers Out Front will inspire you as well.

This event draws from folks from neighboring towns and will happen from 7.30-9 pm. Please RSVP to katie.alt.griffith@gmail.com for address.

The Library of Things “Wish List”

Help Wellesley Free Library expand its Library of Things!

If you have items you are not really using and could donate them, the Library would like to make available for loan for all to use. Below is their “wish list.”

To be accepted, items must be new or nearly new. Donations will be considered outright gifts and will be added or removed from the Library of Things using criteria from the library’s collection policy.

The library also seeks donations of new or like-new padded cases of all sizes; camera bags, padded rolling backpacks, clear backpacks and clear small Sterilite cases are all reusable as protective packaging for the Things.

Borrowing instead of buying useful items like these is a great value that also reduces waste and exercises our environmental stewardship. So next time you want to use something, consider going to the library and borrowing it instead.

Questions? Contact librarian Lisa Arm.
