From the Desk of Lucy Ennis, President

August 1


    Once again I am coming to you with your monthly reminder that the business meeting for Madison Valley Friends of the Library is coming up.  The first Wednesday is August 5 so I hope to see you in the Community Room of the library at 1:00.  Some good news – the meeting will be over by 2:00 because the open sew quilting group starts in the same room at 2:00.  The most important business that will be handled is making sure of final preparations for our used book sale on August 8.

    We will critique and review our July programs and publicize the August programs.  The program on Diabetes presented by Els Mann this Saturday, August 1 will be reviewed with the July events. Forth coming events in August will start Friday night, August 7 at 7 PM with authors Mark and Kym Todd. They will present their book Wild West Ghosts to  us.  Their book discusses their paranormal investigations in old hotels in Colorado. They are asking any and all to bring their own ghost story to share! It sounds like a fun filled night of excitement to me.  Also we have in August the used book sale on Saturday, August 8, a discussion of JoAnne Troxel’s poetry book Bad Dog Blues on August 15 at 11:00 and August 22 Kathy Coontz, Montana State coordinator, Quilts of Valor program will speak again at 11:00 AM in the Community Room.  The final party for the Summer reading program, Every Hero has a Story will be Tuesday August11.  The final party is always lots of fun, so check with the library for details and plan to attend.

    Can it be possible that we are wrapping up another summer?  Stay tuned to the library (and their Friends) to find out what exciting events will be happening in the fall.


Keep on reading and supporting your public library.
