As we start a new year, many of us make resolutions for goals we want to achieve during the year. One of those goals might be to help the library by becoming a member of the Friends of the Library. If you are unable to participate in the meetings, you could sign up to volunteer during the annual book sale or during one of the other events the friends sponsor. You could resolve to put a dollar or two in their plastic donation box every time you come to the library. You could bring in your used books, books on CD, or DVDs as a donation to the library or the library book sale. You could resolve to read to your children every night, so they learn to love books and the wonders they can find inside. You could bring books to shut-ins who are unable to make it to the library. I could go on, but you get the idea.
On Jan. 18, the Children’s Room resumes Story Time for children ages 3-5. You can sign-up anytime by calling 394-8866. You can choose Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday at 10:30 a.m.
The Friends of the Library will be meeting at 10:30 a.m. Jan. 18 in the meeting room. They have invited the Duluth Friends of the Library to join them to share ideas and consider working together on a project. A potluck luncheon follows. Friends’ members new and old are welcome.
New non-fiction includes: “American Rebel: The life of Clint Eastwood,” “Get Cooking” by Mollie Katzen, “The Audacity to Win,” “The Frugal Life: How to Spend Less and Live More,” “Knitting a Kiss in Every Stitch” by Nicky Epstein, “A World Without Ice,” and “Helping Your Child to Read.”
