With every brand new year come the mandatory “Resolutions” lists which most of us abandon after a few weeks of half-hearted effort! Here’s one resolution that I hope many of you will keep: Read more books! We try to make it easy for you by showcasing the best that we have, such as the New York Times Best Sellers display; and for children, the What’s New At The Library display in the Children’s Room. Donations keep showing up and many of them are nearly new, hot off the top ten list. Our classics section is easily accessible now in the Main Room, and those are always in vogue offering the best writing and the most engaging stories you’ll ever read.
We have also added a couple of exciting adult groups to entertain and challenge you. The Writers’ Group meets every second Wednesday in the Annex at 2:30pm. This is a group of folks who have a passion for writing, or who would like to hone their writing skills, or who would like to learn how. If you have a secret longing to pen the great American novel - or just a really good story - come join this group.
The second gathering is a Book Club which meets on the second Monday in the Annex at 2:30pm. Book clubs are a great way to be introduced to stories you might not choose yourself, but which expand your horizon and your experience. For information on either of these groups, call Barbara Theus at 541-746-9734. New members are always welcome.
The volunteers and I want to wish all of you a very happy new year filled with blessings and with joy. We so appreciate your patronage and your support over the years and we look forward to many more years of continued service to the McKenzie River community. Come see us often!
I’ll see you at the library.
