February 5 – Friends Meeting

Library School Storytime will start their 2nd session on Thursday, February 6th at 9 AM.  Storytime usually includes a rhyme, song, game, craft and book.  It is planned for a three year old to attend with an adult caregiver.  That said, children of all ages are welcome to attend and participate as they are able.  Please contact the library to register.  This is important, so that enough supplies needed for the day’s activities will be prepared and on hand.  This session will focus on books by Todd Parr.
The Friends of Our Wonderful Library/FOWL will meet this Thursday, February 6th at 6 PM.  Two items on the agenda are the outdoor space and a 10 year anniversary dinner.
Monday the 10th, What Kind of Book Club Is This?!?! will meet at 6 PM to discuss, “Before We Were Yours” by Lisa Wingate.  Our March selection has been changed to, “The Handmaid’s Tale” by Margaret Atwood.
Thursday, February 13th at 6 PM:  a screening of author Elaine Weiss’s introduction of her book, “Woman’s Hour:  The Great Fight to Win the Vote” at the Woodrow Wilson National history Center in Washington D. C.  part of the Ashland & Bayfield Counties League of Women’s Voters promoting the Centennial of the 19th Amendment.
It’s time to remove our lounge chair.  It’s served us well for these past 10 years, but it’s time to say good-bye.  We’re offering it up for silent auction with a minimum bid of $25.  The proceeds will go to the Mellen Friends of the Library.  Interested?  Stop by the library and enter your bid.  The deadline is 1 PM on Thursday, March 5th.  Payment will be expected, when chair is removed.  The winner is responsible for moving the chair to its new home by March 12th.
