Have you read any books by Artist, Thomas Kinkade? His pictures are very popular but this reporter did not realize he was also an author along with Catherine Spencer. There are seven of his books in the Library and they are a hot item right now. The book "Cape Light" is very refreshing. It is set in a small town very much like our own. Two young ladies each have their own problems with which to deal. One is looking for her birth Mother and the other is trying to decide what she really wants out of life. Their stories entwine along with many other people in the small community. Thomas Kinkade is often asked why there are no people in his pictures. He says, "The truth is, my paintings are full of people. They sit in the windows reading a bedtime story to their children. They tend the flowers that line the paths to their warm and inviting homes. I know you will enjoy meeting the people of Cape Light. Their stories remind us that it is possible to overcome challenges and learn to live again, in the light of love and faith. Welcome to Cape Light, a little town you've never been to, but you know it by heart." Check it out!
The Library is slowly gaining some "breathing space" thanks to Stacie and Mardel who spent last Tuesday "weeding". Soon the library will be re-arranged to make it more user friendly. If you have time to spare and would like to spend a day moving books, call the library at 962-3714 for more details.
Don't forget to mark 6:30 p.m. next Friday evening on your calendar to remind you of the Inspirational presentation in Ferdinand by Mat Potratz the young professional snowmobile rider who was caught in an avalanche and nearly lost his life. See you there!
