Urgent parade update!

The Park and Recreation department as changed the time that parade participants need to arrive!
We have been asked to arrive at 11:00 am in the Town hall parking lot this Saturday, the 19th. Any later and we’ve been told we might miss the parade departure!

We’ll have time to decorate and get our gold ready to pass out once we’re situated on our float.

Check out the fabulous pictures of our meeting on Monday, where Jr. Friends prepared our decorations, costumes and publicity for the big shindig on Saturday.



We’ve been invited to ride in the Essex St. Patrick’s Day Parade!

Looking forward to seeing you on Monday, January 14th for our next meeting!

We’ll be looking at our website on the big screen and will be working on our Do It Yourself Calendars.

Don’t forget to bring photos if you would like to include them in your projects!!



We’re getting better by the month!


Junior friends met again this month and had a very successful gathering! We’ve discussed a great deal including future plans for the upcoming year and projects that we might be working on. For example, we’re creating our own logo.

We’re now working on choosing a new meeting time for the new year – but for now,  plan to meet on Monday, January 10th at 4pm. Can’t wait to see you then!!

Looking for Junior Friend Points?

We would REALLY love your help!

You are cordially invited to attend our next event: the annual Santa Clause Story Time:

Some Jr. Friends have requested that we wear elf shoes and elf hats…. This is of COURSE not required – but you are certainly welcome to dress the part.
Thanks so much!  Please send Jessica an email if you have any questions. jbranciforte@essexlib.org
