Christmas holidays are here. We are very excited about the upcoming holiday festivities.
The library will have a booth at the Hometown Country Christmas on Saturday, Dec. 11. We will have paperback books for sale. Plan to come and buy a book or two to put in your Christmas stockings. If you have a preference for a certain author, then please let your librarian know.
We have many books donated and can probably fix you up for your reading needs. All proceeds will go towards the new Library Building Fund.
Groveton Methodist Women has graciously donated $150 towards the Library Building Fund. We are humbled and thankful for their donation. There are donation cans in some of our businesses in town. The total collections from these jars for the past two weeks were $100.58. Our total donations so far $455.28.
If you happen to be in these stores, please drop your change and it will eventually add up to our new library building. The businesses that have graciously allowed us to put donation jars are McClain’s Hardware, One Stop Grocery and Pizza, Pruitt’s Auto Parts and Susie Q’s. Please support these businesses and support our new library efforts.
Your librarian will keep you posted on our advancing total every two weeks. There will be more fundraisers in the future and they will be announced here in our news column.
•There has been a lot of interest in starting a Friends of the Library group. This group would help your librarian with fundraising for the anticipated new library. If you would be interested in joining this group, please call or come by the library and get the information you need to join.
The library will have a Christmas open house on Friday, Dec. 17, from 5-6 p.m. Please come and visit your library and have some cookies and punch. Everyone is invited.
•We have so many activities to offer at the library. If you can think of something you wish for us to offer, please let your librarian know. This is your library and we would not be here if not for our patrons.
If you are aware of any person that is homebound and cannot get to the library but would like to have books to read, please call the library. We will work on a time for delivery and pickup of books if someone shows interest. This is your library. Please let me know how I can be of service to you.
Our hours of operation are Monday through Friday from 1 to 6 p.m.
Story time is at 5 p.m. Tuesdays and Thursdays. ESL class is at 2 p.m. Friday
The library phone number is (936) 642-2483, and the location is in the rock building just east of the courthouse.
