Are you a friend of the library?

With the annual book sale happening this weekend, now is a great time to join the Friends of the Library. Membership in the FOL is an important way you can help us raise money to fund special programs and purchase supplies and equipment that are not in the library’s budget. Some of the programs the FOL supports are the summer concerts, summer reading program, author visits and many other programs. FOL members also volunteer to support the library, often baking items for bake sales or helping to sort donated books for the book sales. If you are interested in helping to support and enhance our library services, please stop by to pick up a membership envelope.

Library displays

The next time you are visiting the library, be sure to stroll the hall art gallery to admire the oil paintings of local artist Susie Flansburg, the library’s September Artist of the Month. Our display case is exhibiting a miniatures collection shared by Rose Lawson. It is sure to please all ages!

Gadgets and Gizmos: 101

Do you know what an iPad is? A Tablet? On Thursday, Sept. 26, from noon to 1 p.m., you can see an overview of everyday electronic devices and their uses. This workshop is for people with little or no prior computer knowledge who wish to learn the basics. Light refreshments will be served.
