Friends of the Library News

From the desk of Lucy Ennis, President


Hi Friends,

    I can scarcely believe March has sped by and April is on the horizon. I find myself anxious to send you news from the Friends of Madison Valley Public Library.  We have several new members and I bid you welcome.  All of us together make a strong Friends group and a cadre of library supporters. Great!

    The monthly business meeting will be on Wednesday, April 1 at 1:00 in the library community room.  Please come and remember that children are welcome so you do not need to get a sitter to attend. Our business meetings are not well attended and those of us attending hope we are making decisions you would approve of. We would like you to add your voice.

    The Friends are presenting a program with the sponsorship of Humanities Montana.  Because April is National Poetry Month we are hosting WordSong, which is an active energetic reading of poetry with guitar music by Dave Caserio and Alex Neumann.  Check out the up and coming library events; please come!
     One last thing:  a great way to keep tabs on what's happening at the library is their new Facebook page.  Even if you aren't a regular on the site, check it out, it's a good way to keep track of what's going on!

      Here is looking forward to a joyful spring.  See you in the library!
