Monday Morning Book Club

Join us May 20th at 10:30 AM to discuss
The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein!

A heart-wrenching but deeply funny and ultimately uplifting story of family, love, loyalty, and hope, The Art of Racing in the Rain is a beautifully crafted and captivating look at the wonders and absurdities of human life … as only a dog could tell it.

Enzo knows he is different from other dogs: a philosopher with a nearly human soul (and an obsession with opposable thumbs), he has educated himself by watching television extensively, and by listening very closely to the words of his master, Denny Swift, an up-and-coming race car driver.

Through Denny, Enzo has gained tremendous insight into the human condition, and he sees that life, like racing, isn’t simply about going fast. On the eve of his death, Enzo takes stock of his life, recalling all that he and his family have been through.

New!! LIBRARY OF THINGS!

We are excited to announce the addition of our “Library of Things”!

Thanks to a grant from the Foundation for Southern Tier Libraries we were able to purchase a variety of items that can be checked out just like other library materials such as books and DVD’s.  We surveyed the Fillmore community this past summer asking residents what they would like to see in this new collection. Our goal was to provide items for community members to try before purchasing, or to borrow things they may need occasionally and might not want to invest in.  These “things” are available for checkout with a Fillmore library card in good standing for those 18 and over:
