An artist’s reception is scheduled to take place from 10:30 a.m. to noon, Saturday, Dec. 9. All are invited to see Fishman and talk about how she creates her art.

Many of the scenes will be familiar to people who know and love the surrounding landscape. On display will be Fishman’s pastels, along with interesting collages, jewelry and ornaments, all according to a news release from the library.

Casey Junker Bailey will present her annual Holiday Program at 10:30 a.m. Saturday, Dec. 16, for kids of all ages. Bailey will read a Christmas classic and children will make decorations for hearth and home or for gift-giving. A surprise visit from Santa is expected. All are welcome.

About 50 video DVDs were recently donated, and the library staff invite all to come on over and check them out. Many are well known and well-acted movies and TV series from the not too distant past. Those who enjoyed The Beverly Hillbillies, 24, Six Feet Under, Lost, Johnny Carson, Mr. Selfridge, M*A*S*H or Mad Men, can watch them all again. Other excellent movies on the library shelves include Ladies in Lavender, Ocean’s Twelve, We Were Soldiers, The Truman Show, Point Break, The Life of Pi, Sully and many others, according to the library.

The library also has more than two bookcases full of antique books in its book loft, and they are for sale. Most of these limited-edition books were printed in the late 1800s or early 1900s. The library would like to use these book shelves for other purposes, and hopes that patrons will stop by and make an offer for these clothbound and beautifully illustrated books.

Calling all artists – if any are in the need of frames – local artist Nancy Tips has donated a bunch of frames that she no longer needs. Stop in and make an offer; all sales will be donated to library coffers.

Library Hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday from 10 a.m. to noon and from 1 to 5 p.m.; additional hours on Wednesday are from 7 to 9 p.m., and 10 a.m.-1 p.m. on Saturdays.
