Treasures to explore today! Spurr Open House & Two Community Yard Sales

There's multiple treasures to explore today!

Spurr Open House

10 AM - 12 Noon

There will be an open house Saturday, Sept. 12, from 10 a.m. to noon, at the Spurr House, 7 Parkman St. The Spurr House was built in 1849 and is owned by the Town of Westborough since the Forbes family donated the house to the town in 1933. For many years the American Legion used the home as a meeting place, but it has been vacant since 2014.

A Spurr House Committee was appointed at March Town Meeting to develop recommendations for the ultimate disposition of the house and property and present at the Oct. 19 Town Meeting. Since then, the Committee has been conducting community outreach to assist with its research and findings. The Sept. 12 open house will be an opportunity to showcase the home's architecture and condition and to receive feedback from visitors.

See Community Advocate for full details.

Up to 10 librarians in public, school and college, community college and university libraries will be selected to win $5,000 and will be honored at a ceremony and reception in New York, hosted by the Carnegie Corporation of New York. In addition, a plaque will be given to each award-winner’s library. Winners will be announced in December 2015.

Each nominee must be a librarian with a master’s degree from a program accredited by the ALA in library and information studies or a master’s degree with a specialty in school library media from an educational unit accredited by the National Council for the Accreditation of Teacher Education.  Nominees must be currently working in the United States in a public library, a library at an accredited two- or four-year college or university or at an accredited K-12 school.
