NEW DISPLAY  Are you disappointed that the Bassmaster Tournament is over?  Miss the fish?  Then stop by the library: we have a new display of vintage fishing lures, poles, and more.  These unique and functional collectables come from a variety of sources.  The long cabinet features the collection of Shannon Demers, while the lures in the circular cabinet are on loan from Bob Bowman, Thomas Murray, and Dean Marshall.  As always, we have plenty of books about fishing for you to check out if the display inspires you.


SOCIAL HOUR  Our next social hour is tomorrow (Wednesday) the 12th, at 1 PM.  Stop by to talk to your neighbors, drink coffee, and munch on treats.
