Last Thursday, Chris Rycroft from Harvard University talked about the Pi, which is the ratio of a circle's circumference to its diameter.
While it's an irrational number (meaning it goes on forever) it's most commonly represented by 3.14. As a result every March 14th (3/14) is celebrated as PI Day. If you were unable to make it, here are the presentation slides.

The Wilmington Memorial Library is sponsoring Food for Fines to benefit the Wilmington Food Pantry from February 2 to March 16. Patrons may have their library fines cleared by bringing a nonperishable food donation to the library. In the spirit of the program, we ask that the estimated value of the donation be close to the amount of the fine. For a list of items needed by the Food Pantry, you can check the Community Fund website. We are also joining other libraries across the state during this time period in sponsoring a PJ Drive in partnership with the Boston Bruins and Cradles to Crayons. Patrons who bring in a new pair of PJs (infants to school age) can have their fines cleared. Those who do not have fines are encouraged to donate to these two worthy programs.
