Tuesday Night Family Story Time Returns to Library

Tuesday night Family Storytimes return on February 4 at 6:30. Miss Robin will start us off on the 4th and will bring in guest storytellers as the month continues.

Our first guest will be Parent's Choice Silver Award winner Diane Edgecomb who will present Join In: Stories & Songs from Around the World on February 11th. Travel around the world with captivating multi-cultural legends. Each tale offers a participatory look at our common love of story. Celebrate engaging narratives, animal characters, songs in different languages and home-spun wisdom as one of New England's favorite storytellers takes us from the heart of the Amazon rainforest to the villages of Africa on the wings of story, rhythm and song.
Diane is a featured storyteller on NPR and is known for transforming into the characters in her tales. Publisher's Weekly called her 'an entire cast rolled into one!' Warm up your hearts and your imaginations with this delightful family event. Recommended for ages 4 and above.
We are pleased to announce that Diane will be returning to us on Saturdays in March and April to lead our Family Adventures in Reading Series. Learn more about this program being offered to the families of Middleborough by Mass Humanities.
On February 18, authors Sandy Leahy and Kathy Tarentino will be in to read their book "The Hibernating House;" share a wooden model of the hibernating house and an activity sheet. Learn about this seasonal house on Martha's Vineyard as it gets cozy to sleep the winter away; awakens to laughter of children on a warm spring day and watches a family as it creates unforgettable memories. Copies of their book will be available for purchase and signing.

Recycled Card Program

Soule Homestead has a meaningful and "green" way to help you dispose of your old greeting cards. Bring them to our collection box and we'll make sure they get to the St. Jude's Ranch for Children - Recycled Card Program!

Your cards will be recycled into new holiday and greeting cards made by children and volunteers and sold to support various programs and services operated by Kid's Corp., a program for the children at St. Jude's Ranch to learn entrepreneurship skills.

  • All types of greeting cards, including Christmas are accepted
  • No deadline - we now accept used, all-occasion greeting cards year round!
  • Only the card front can be used (backside should be free of writing)
  • We can not accept Hallmark, Disney or American Greeting cards
  • 5" x 7" size or smaller is preferred
To Donate Cards:
  • Greeting cards may be dropped off during regular office hours, any Tuesday through Friday, from 9am to 5pm, or during any of our scheduled Saturday workshops (check our website calendar for the most current information).
  • A collection box is located inside the classroom (next to the office door). The office is located in the building below the barn on the right-hand side.
