WEEKLY QUOTE “Summer is not obligatory. We can start an infernally hard jigsaw puzzle in June with the knowledge that, if there are enough rainy days, we may just finish it by Labor Day, but if not, there's no harm, no penalty. We may have better things to do.” – Nancy Gibbs, American journalist
SOCIAL HOUR Social Hour is tomorrow, Wednesday the 8th, from 2 – 3 PM. Join your neighbors for coffee, treats, and conversation.
BEADING Come in to learn how to make a napkin holder with wire and beads next Monday the 13th at 3 PM. All materials are provided, and there is no cost to attend. If you would like to see additional crafting classes at different times, please offer your suggestions to library staff.
WEEKLY QUOTE “By their hands I fain would clasp them – ah! each lives but in a name; But the freedom that they fought for, and the country grand they wrought for, Is their monument to-day, and for aye.” – Thomas Dunn English, American poet and politician

WEEKLY QUOTE "Prithee, smite the poet in the eye when he would sing to you praises of the month of May. It is a month presided over by the spirits of mischief and madness. . . In May, nature holds up at us a chiding finger, bidding us remember that we are not gods, but overconceited members of her own great family." – O. Henry
LIBRARY CLOSED The library will be closed next Monday May 30th for Memorial Day.
