Tuesday, June 5, 2012
To the Editor: GK. Chesterton wrote, “Without the rain, there would be no rainbow.” One could also say, “without the Friends of the Sherborn Library, there would be no Arts & Crafts Fair!" The Trustees of the Sherborn Library would like to sincerely thank all the Friends, especially co-chairs Abby Fiske & Bene Raia, who along with Mother Nature, once again gave us a day to remember!

With their ongoing support and a recently launched 3-year Capital Campaign the future is certainly bright for the Sherborn Library. A thoughtful and exciting renovation/expansion project is in …
