Nov 23, 2016 Library Newspaper Article for Eclipse

The Brown Bag Book Club book selection for November/December is:  Faith Bass Darling’s Last Garage Sale by Lynda Rutledge.  Discussion will be at noon on Dec. 12…all are welcomed to attend!

 Amazon book description: “On the last day of the millennium, sassy Faith Bass Darling, the richest old lady in Bass, Texas, decides to have a garage sale. With help from a couple of neighborhood boys, Faith lugs her priceless Louis XV elephant clock, countless Tiffany lamps, and everything else in her nineteenth-century mansion out onto her long, sloping lawn.  Why is a recluse of twenty years suddenly selling off her dearest posessions? Because God told her to.  As the townspeople grab up five generations of heirlooms, everyone drawn to the sale--including Faith's long-lost daughter--finds that the antiques not only hold family secrets but also inspire some of life's most important questions: Do our possessions possess us? What are we without our memories? Is there life after death or second chances here on earth? And is Faith really selling that Tiffany lamp for $1?”

Save the dates!  We have two programs at the beginning of December.  Our Christmas Open House, Christmas Story Time and Santa’s visit are all on Saturday, Dec. 3rd.  Snacks, crafts, and fun for all!  On Monday, Dec. 5th , we have a special Pajama Story Time with guest author Nancy Adams from Marshalltown.  Nancy will join us at 6:30 pm and read her book, The Transatlantic Bunny. All are welcomed to attend; children must have an adult accompany them, thanks!

Reminder:  the Friends of the Parkersburg Library are selling beautiful Christmas Cacti for a fundraiser. They are large, healthy plants and loaded with buds.  We still have plenty to choose from—these would make great hostess gifts for Thanksgiving, or an early Christmas gift.  Stop in and get yours today!
