Guests had a wonderful time at our Love Your Local Artist event on Friday. We were fortunate to view the work of 28 talented artists. Thank you to everybody who attended the event for making it a special evening, for supporting our local artists, and for “adopting” a book at the book sale.
A special thank you goes to the Friends of the Library for the appetizers, and to Kevin Hoeschen and his quartet for the lovely music. Also, thank you to Belknap Liquor and Lounge, Keyport Lounge and Liquor, Superior Public Museums (Fairlawn), and Saratoga Liquor, and Ray Nelson for helping us to serve wine at our gala event this year.
The Friends of the Library meets at 10:30 a.m. Monday in the library classroom. Everyone is welcome. Please come and join us as plans are made for the April book sale.
Storytime for children of all ages continues on 10:30-11 a.m. each Tuesday through March 6. Each storytime takes place in the Children’s Room and includes songs, stories, and a craft. No registration is necessary.
The AARP tax help will again be available in the library meeting room 11:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday and Thursday through April 9. There is no charge for this help.
Did you know….that our nation’s public libraries are busier than ever? More than 1.5 billion library visits are made per year in the United States. Every year, Americans visit the library more often than we go to the movies and six times more often than we attend live sporting events. There’s no doubt that public libraries are an important part of our communities.
