Sunday and Monday and Tuesday

Go support the Friends AND a local business while getting gorgeous clothes! It's a win-win-win situation!

Jones Library Curator "Meet and Greet"

Once the hullabaloo of the holidays dies down, you're going to go into party withdrawal.  You'll miss the buzz of a roomful of people.  You'll miss the plastic cup in your hand filled with a slightly warm seltzer.  You'll miss seeing folks in their Fancy Clothes.

Fear not! The Jones has your back!

Please come join us on Thursday, January 22, from 2-3 pm in the Goodwin Room of the Jones Library.  Come and meet ... (drum roll, please) ...

our new Head of Special Collections Cynthia Harbeson!

(Cue Kermit the Frog exiting stage left from the Muppet Show stage to wild applause.)

See you on the 22nd! Wear your fanciest Christmas sweater!

Reading literature makes us smarter and nicer

An article from Time Magazine last year highlights a couple of studies proving that people who often read fiction "appear to be better able to understand other people, empathize with them, and view the world from their perspective."

The Friends feel it goes without saying that it also makes them better looking.

Go forth and read, Friends! 
You're making the world a better place!
