Looking Forward

We want to thank everyone who came out on Saturday and helped us celebrate the 100th birthday of our building.  We had a great time!  We also kicked off our Seed Sharing Library and are now accepting donations.  We hope to begin sharing seeds in the spring, but we need to grow our library. 

We also want to congratulate Allie Rose (age 7) who won the Friends of the Library surprise giveaway of a Kindle Fire HD!  She was here from the Dallas area visiting her grandmother.

As much fun as this past weekend was, we have a fun and busy week to look forward to at the library.  Today is a Marvelous Monday! and for the next couple of weeks we will be having Halloween themed activities for the kids.  Stop in at 4:15 today! 

Also, Saturday from 10:00 - 12:00 we will have our Fall Seed and Plant Swap.  We've been doing this for a couple of years now and it is always fun.  To participate, just bring a plant or seed that you are willing to exchange.  It can be a cutting from something in your yard, bulbs or seeds, or a potted plant from a garden center.  Whatever you bring will find a good home with someone and you will leave with something new for your garden.  Some of our local gardeners bring lots of things, so usually you will go home with more than you came with.     

And finally, we have begun serving coffee.  Coffee is free, but a donation to the Friends of the Library is appreciated.  We are serving coffee from local roasters, Lake Country Roasters, owned by Martin and Susan Bass.  The weather forecast looks like perfect coffee drinking weather the rest of the week!

We hope to see you at one or all of our upcoming events!!
