1. Meeting Canceled. The Community Preservation Committee has canceled the meeting scheduled for tonight.

2. Other Meetings. The Weston School Committee and the Library Board of Trustees are still scheduled to meet today. The Library Board meets at 8:30 a.m. and the School Committee at 7 p.m.

4. eBook Options. The Weston Public Library has an array of ebooks available for check out. Want to make use of your Nook or Kindle? Check out the options.

5. Have a Heart. On this date in 1957, Lewis Washkansky received the first human heart transplant. Wahkansky died 18 days after the transplant from double pneumonia, to which he was made susceptible by the immune-supressing drugs he took to avoid rejecting the new heart. Still, the new heart appeared to have functioned properly until his death.

Dear Weston Patch, Thank you for highlighting the options for ebooks on various devices. For assistance using library books on an ereader, patrons can call the Reference Desk and schedule a one-on-one appointment. We'll show people how to borrow books using their device! Also, thanks to the help and expertise of Weston Media, brief videos can be found under "gadget help" in the Reference section of the library website at: http://westonlibrary.org/reference/computer-classes Jennifer Warner Assistant Director Weston Public Library
