September 4 – Library Card Sign-Up Month

September is Library Card Sign-Up Month.  If you don’t have a library card, stop by to get one.  You’ll need proof of identification with your current address.  You may then enter a special drawing for New Card Holders.  If you already have a card, each time visit the library and present your card for check-out, you may enter a drawing.  Stop by and see what your library card can do for you.
The Friends of the Library’s Quilt for their Fall Raffle is now on display at the Library.  The quilt, “Stacks” was made by Judy Gibson and donated to the Mellen Friends by Elizabeth Webster.  Other donations have already been brought in for the raffle which will be held on Saturday, September 28th, 9 AM-Noon.  The drawing for the quilt and other prizes will begin at Noon.  In addition to the “Stacks” quilt and prizes listed last week, we’ve added an animal cross-stitched baby quilt made & donated by Betty White, “Take Me Home Country Roads” & “The Days Are Long . . . ” signs made & donated by Coreina Stricker, and a loom woven denim rug donated by Tana Turonie.  Tickets are $1 each.

The Friends of the Library will meet Thursday, September 5th at 5 PM.
At 7 PM Thursday, September 5th join us in making book art.  We’ll share directions in creating a birdhouse or fairy house or?  Depending upon your imagination and extra touches it could be anything.  Materials for the project will be provided.  This will be the first of our Conversation & Crafts meetings following our summer break.  C&C will continue to meet on Thursday evenings at 7 PM.  If you have a craft idea, please share it with us at the library.
