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.
With April coming soon plans are under way for our Spring Fling, which will be held on Saturday, April 13th, from 9am to 1pm.
We will not be having story hour today. We will instead, be thinking fondly of story hours in the past, along with warm thoughts. We will resume with story hour next week Thursday, Feb. 7th, at 4:30pm. Hope to see you all then!! Stay safe and warm!!
Sending warm thoughts your way,
As we are CLOSED today.
Hope you have a good book to read,
Maybe about gardening and planting seeds.
Tomorrow we will be back,
For story hour, a craft, and a yummy snack.
And that's my try at a winter poem,
Hoping you are safe, warm, and at home.
Are you ready to rummage? If so, stop by the Library and check out the Rummage for Reading table. Normally we don't set it up until early Spring, but this winter we've had so many items donated that we decided to start early. Already this week a picnic basket, a large silver mixing bowl, a 4 qt.
