Today a customer came in, she brought her grandkids. They all got books and a couple movies. Checked everything out and home they went. A few minutes later, I received a call...she had forgotten her "on hold" movies! Could she come back and get them? 'Of course" I said! I checked out the movies and waited by the door until she came...I quick ran out so she wouldn't have to park and handed her her movies. She was so happy to be able to "grab & run". We always aim to please! What does your library do for you?
One of our book club members brought in the movie "If Beale Street Could Talk" and you are invited to come and watch it this Saturday morning, April 27th, at 9am here at the library in the reading room. It won an Academy Award and also a Golden Globe award for best performance by an actress in a supporting role. The story is about Tish and Alonzo, young African Americans in Harlem, in the 1970s, and in love. This is the story of their relationship, and the challenges it faces during the era. Bring your coffee or drink, and enjoy a movie and a bit of discussion afterwards
We will be discussing the book “A Piece of the World” by Christina Baker Kline this Thursday at 6pm in the meeting room. To Christina Olson, the entire world was her family’s remote farm in the small coastal town of Cushing, Maine. Born in the home her family had lived in for generations, and increasingly incapacitated by illness, Christina seemed destined for a small life. Instead, for more than twenty years, she was host and inspiration for the artist Andrew Wyeth, and became the subject of one of the best known American paintings of the twentieth century.
We have been celebrating the writings of Dr. Seuss this month as his birthday was on March 2nd. Our goal was to check out 100 of his books by month end. At the writing of this article we have checked out 65 items. With a week to go yet we are hoping that we can still meet our goal. We've also used Dr. Seuss's books for story hour this month, and have one more program this Thursday at 4:30pm. All ages are welcome!
Rummage for Reading has started again. If you are spring cleaning and need a place to donate items, please think of the library. We will price the donations, place them on our Rummage for Reading table, and then use the proceeds to purchase new books. It's a win/win situation.
