It’s been another busy week at the library accessioning new arrivals and placing them in their proper place in the library. For those of you with a flare for westerns we now have Horsing Around A Lot and Humor around Horses by author Stu Campbell, Yesterdays Yarns by Ken Overcast, and Half Broken Horses by Jeannette Walls. You will find other new books by authors David Ballacci, John Gresham and W.E.B. Green. During the month of March the library will open at 10:am Tuesday and Thursday and the coffee pot will be on, so stop by and enjoy a cup while checking out nearly 100 new books on the shelves. The childrens area is looking better by the week and new books can also be found there.
Open house for Ladd Arnoti was well received with many signing the guest book. A special guest, former resident of the area and class mate of Ladd’s daughter, Marlene Rad O’Neill, now residing near Clearwater, drove up just for this special occasion.
Joan Kopczynski’s book Spies, Lies & Psychosis is now available at the library. The cost of $18 includes tax. On days when the library is closed, Carol at city hall will make them available.
The computer class is going well. It takes a strong hearted instructor with lots of patients to teach the grandma‘s (after a big boo-boo) how to successfully restore all programs to their original state. Way to hang in there Zeke. The next class will be Thursday 4:30 to 5:30.
New Library Officers for the coming year will be Laurine Nightingale President, Steve Halligan Vice President, Ed McMillian Secretary and Donna Wassmuth Treasurer. Other Committee appointments are Dorothy Arnoti - Artistic talent, Marlene Jungert - Local Authors, Cindy Willson - scheduling and Face book, Pat Trautman - creative talent and Jane Burgess - internet correspondence.
Thanks to the generosity of Ladd Arnoti who purchased a light for the displaying artwork in the library and Kenny Geis who donated his labor to install it, the wall is now a bright and delightful display area.
