Altamont Library Notes for Thursday, January 9, 2014

This is likely the first time you’ll hear about it, so give it your strictest attention. The Altamont Free Library’s annual Gala dinner and auction fund-raising celebration is coming.  Its official name: I Love My Library “Winter Wonderland” Gala.

As always it will be held in the Altamont Community Room on Main Street. The hours are 5 to 9:30 p.m. The cost is $50 per person. Please RSVP with payment by Jan. 31.  

This is most important: The event always sells out.  Year after year, winter after winter, the event always sells out. Do not put this off until the last minute. It will probably have passed.  Do not put this off till the last minute.  The event always sells out.

Meet the memoir-ists

On Saturday, Jan. 11, at 3 p.m. the library will be celebrating the community members who wrote their memoirs with us: Dorothy Armstrong, Ann Vlahos, Stewart Linendoll, Sara Killen, and the group that wrote the history of the train station/library transformation. The gathering will feature readings, light refreshment, and camaraderie. Not bad for a Saturday afternoon in January.

Adult trivia

This is not a contradiction in terms.  In fact this is a lot of fun.  Come already part of a team of four, or come on your own and we’ll put you on a team.  The cost is $5 per player.  Please sign up at the library.
