Altamont Library Notes for Friday, January 3, 2014

The Altamont Free Library has books for sale.  We’ve been culling non-fiction books that have not been taken out in a long time, in order to make room for new items, ones we hope will be in greater demand.

Our culls are up for grabs at 25 cents each for paperbacks, and 50 cents for hard covers.  These prices are a steal.  Come in and have a look.


It’s catching on.  This month’s Pinterest project is turning a well-worn hard cover book hmm… (Where would we find a few of those?), into a fine looking planter. The date is Monday, Jan. 6, at 7 p.m.

Book discussion

The first book club discussion group of 2014 is set for Monday, Jan. 6, at noon at the library.  The book is Neil Gaiman’s The Ocean at the End of the Lane. Early reports describe the book as challenging.  Challenging books make for feisty discussions, the best kind.
