Stuff That Happened to Me

The Stratford Library is hosting a book discussion on the Gulf Coast Reads selection Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close by Jonathan Safran Foer on Wednesday, October 10 at 10:00 am.  To help get into the spirit of things, the library will be displaying a scrapbook bulletin board called STUFF THAT HAPPENED TO ME.  It is a collection of moments, big or small, that happened in the lives of your neighbors, friends, and fellow patrons.  Feel free to stop by to look and even contribute if you'd like!
