The week of April 11-17 is National Library Week. It is a time to celebrate libraries of all kinds all over the country. What a privilege it is to have good school, academic, and public libraries here!
The Friends of the Library holds its monthly meeting on April 19 at 10:30 a.m. in the classroom. Final preparations for the week-long set-up and hosting of the annual book sale will take place, as well as making plans for the May annual meeting. All Friends members are welcome.
The Friends are having their big annual book sale on 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. April 23 and 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 24. The money earned from this sale will help the library purchase new materials. In the meeting room, you are welcome to browse a huge selection of books and other items. In the library classroom are the “best of the best,” individually priced. Many volunteer hours go into putting on such a large sale. We would appreciate your support, so new items can be purchased to be enjoyed by many.
The library has received various art print donations over the past several years, but had no bags to put them in for check-out. The Friends formed a sewing committee, and made 16 new customized bags. Becky Erlenbach, Karen Lambert, Pat Hovi and Carol Reasbeck donated the material, Becky and Karen did the sewing, and Gary Reed from Reed Graphics donated the lettering on each bag. Thanks to this effort, our art gallery has some new selections for you to choose from.
