FYI from FOL
From the Desk of Lucy Ennis
Here it is February but no scurrying back to our burrows for us.
Last month in addition to our regular mental health program we presented an “open mike” afternoon. We had readers from Bozeman, Harrison, Norris, Cameron, and Ennis. Both poetry and prose were read and all who attended had a great time.
The Friends also presented a $100 award at the science fair to the project that demonstrated the best use of library materials. That includes properly cited internet sources. This year there were several projects that did a good job and the prize was presented to a team project.
Programs for February will be Saturday Feb.7 Lisa Brubaker discussing Obsessive/Compulsive Disorder (OCD) at 11:00 in the Community Room. Also this month there will be a Women’s Suffrage Program on Feb 17 featuring a Living History of Jeannette Rankin. Program times will be 10:00 a.m. for 8th graders and 7:00 p.m. for the public. This is a Humanities Montana sponsored program. Check the Madisonian Calendar for more details on this program.
The March Mental Health Program on March 14 at 11:00 will be Jessie Close talking about bipolar disorder. She has published a book titled Resilience and will be coming to speak to us right after her appearances with Dr. Oz and Good Morning America. Jessie is a resident of McAllister and a member of the Friends. I hope all of you will be able to attend this exciting program.
We hope to present several more Humanities Montana shows this year, some travelogues, and more local authors speaking. We think another “open mike” event in May or June could also be arranged.
Keep talking about our wonderful library. We would invite any and all new members interested in our efforts to support the library in all ways. Our next meeting date will be March 10 at 10:00 a.m. in the Community Room. Please come check it out and get involved!!
