Altamont Library Notes for Friday, November 1, 2013

Election Day is coming.  Responsible citizens will help to decide the directions to be taken by our political groups and communities.

Responsible citizens with a favorite dessert recipe will have a different, equally vital opportunity to help raise needed funds for the Altamont Free Library.

The library’s annual Election Day bake sale is always a major funding source — we’ve come to depend on it.  If you’ve contributed before, please be aware of our appreciation, and please help us again.  If you’d like to make a first time offering, we will be most grateful.

Election Day is Tuesday, Nov. 5.   Please bring your cake, pie, maple bars, treats, cookies, éclairs, mom’s famous, cupcakes, surprise, doughnuts, to the village community room by 8 a.m.  Or call the library at 861-7239 to coordinate a pickup.

And, of course, if baking is just not your thing, you can always help the cause by buying something.  A win-win, yum-yum situation.

Book club selections

The following are the book selections to be enjoyed:

The Woman Upstairs, by Claire Messud on Nov. 4, at noon;

The Three Weissmanns of Westport, by Cathleen Schine, on  Nov. 18t, at 7 p.m., and

Life After Life, by Kate Atkinson, on Dec. 2, at noon.

To a T

The second Pinterest adult craft night will be held at the library on Monday, Nov. 4,, starting at 7 p.m. We’ll be making braided rugs from old T-shirts. Some preliminary mock-up models have been made. They look good.

You know you don’t really want to throw your old shirts away — too many memories, too many vibes.  And you know you’re really not likely to wear them again.  Once again, the vibe thing.  We’ve got a solution. It could be fun.  Bring the shirts with you.
