Sunday, April 28, 3:00pm NSIS Annual Meeting.  Join us at the Library for a brief annual meeting.  We know you would rather be in the garden enjoying the spring blooms and uncovering your perennials, but feel free to join us as we elect our new trustees and officers and get ready for the Library's annual Book Fair.  We will have a table at the Fair with lots of updated information and products to help you Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.  We plan to have another meeting later in the year and will put together some videos like "Dive!  Living Off America's Waste."  Stay tuned for details.

Saturday and Sunday, May 4 and 5 it's time for the annual Library Fair.  We will be there on Saturday, May 4, with displays, handouts and products to help you Reduce, Reuse and Recycle.

If you are a member, you will receive email reminders.  Please consider becoming a member.  It's only $20 per year!

New "Entering North Salem" signs have been installed.  We'll never understand what motivates them, but vandals damaged and totally destroyed four of our gateway signs last year.  All totaled, six of eight signs were down!  We have not been defeated, however. We ordered new and slightly improved signs this spring and they are up!
