A full list of activities and events for fall are some of the many ways our library touches our community: Book and video circulation, of course, but also free use of computers and wi-fi (and computer training), films, book clubs, craft workshops for all ages, activities for children and young adults, a place for community groups to meet. And a LOT more. As Friends members, as active library volunteers, and with your help, we are proud to support this work.
The Friends Board also presents talented speakers, actors and musicians in afternoon programs. Inside this issue you'll find more about Linda Gray Kelley (September 9), who will present Part II of her “Women of the Bible” program. On October 1, be sure to check out Bob Patterson, songwriter and storyteller. And on October 17, we'll be holding a special fund-raising event featuring New Orleans Jazz Singer Sybil Gage. (As one of our board members put it - we'll be serving “Nibbles and Nons(-alcoholic),” that is.) We hope you'll all come.
If you'd like to be notified before each of our events, please let us know your email address. We have many, but not all member emails, and will be glad to add you to our notification list. Just send a note to: firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll get you on the list.
Be sure and circle October 11 as the date of our next Friends Book Sale. As a Friend, you will have early admission and receive a 10% discount on purchases, with your Friends Membership Card. There will be many great gently used books, magazines, VHSs, and DVDs. More details will be available on the Friends Bulletin Board in the library hallway and on the Friends blog listed below.
A special thank you to Platinum Fitness: Their yoga studio holds a donation-only “Karma Yoga” class each Saturday morning. During the month of July, all donations benefited the Friends of the Library. We greatly appreciate their support.
As a reminder to our Friends, all money earned through book sales and program donations go back to our Ormond Beach Library for books, computers and projects. Thank you for all you do to support our community.
See you at the Library!
