Join Katie, Registered Dietitian from Food Explorers to make homemade chocolate Pop-tarts! This online event is on Tuesday, August 11th from 3:30pm – 5pm. You’ll learn how to make pastry dough from scratch, a chocolate fudge filling and delicious glaze to drizzle on top. You will need the following ingredients for this recipe: cocoa powder, chocolate chips, butter, AP flour, sugar, 1 egg, confectioners sugar and whole milk OR heavy cream (about 1/2 cup). A food processor would be very helpful, but not absolutely required. This class will be conducted using Zoom.
This event is for children ages 7+ and is limited to 10 families. Please email the library at firstname.lastname@example.org to sign-up.
Once your family has signed up we will email you the zoom link. This event is being sponsored by the Friends of the Brimfield Public Library, Inc.
This is a touching remembrance of the author’s beloved grandmother, Bobby Bell. Bess Kalb saved every voicemail her grandmother had ever sent to her. This book is written around these sometimes explosively funny and sometimes very opinionated but always from a grandmother’s heart full of love, voicemails. If you’ve ever been fortunate enough to have that one person in your life who loves you and watches out for you more than anyone you will ever meet again and give you advice that no one else would ever dare to, this book will resonate with many touching emotions.

Parker has written many books, and Brimfield Library has a group of them.
This one is actually written by Reed Farrel Coleman, his second book continuing the Jesse Stone protagonist. If you enjoy reading in sequence, Blind Spot was Coleman’s first Stone book. I have not read this/these authors prior to picking up this book. Truth be told, I liked the cover!!
Paradise, MA is a coastal town, with a small population and very old roots. The residents are a tight-knit, and tight-lipped, community. Chief Stone is a newcomer, and as such, he is still making his way through the old bonds, working to understand whom to trust, and what to be wary of.
There are many secrets, lots of characters, and a fairly gritty beginning to the story, but I hung on & was glad that I did. There are similarities to Brimfield, given old and enduring relationships, some whispered secrets, and warmhearted townspeople.
