            Thank you and blessings to all our military personnel who have served, continue to serve and will serve or who gave their lives in service to our country – a happy, healthy, and safe Veteran’s Day to you all.  And again, thank you.

            Tuesday, November 16th is just around the corner.  What is special about that day?  It is our Friends Night at the Library!  Please join us for Friends Night on Tuesday, November 16th at 7 p.m.  Our guest speaker will be Dr. Joan Hartman.  Dr. Hartman has written a book titled “Grace Finds Gold.”  We are very excited to have Dr. Hartman here with us again.  Dr. Hartman, in this story, based the main character in “Grace Finds Gold” (Mary Grace Hartman) on her youngest grandchild, who is 2 years old. Grace discovers some things that are truly gold and some things that only look like gold.  Dr. Hartman presented her previous book titled “Sam’s Special Cookie” here at the library several years ago.  Please join us as we welcome Dr. Hartman back to Brownsville and the Elma Ross Public Library.  All are invited to attend Friends Night at the Library, Tuesday, November 16th at 7 p.m. 

            Just a few reminders.  We are still undergoing renovations here at the library.  Please excuse our mess.  If you are too sick to go to school or to work, you are too sick to come to the library.  Toddler Time will take place (hopefully, if the children’s area renovations are complete) on Monday, November 15th at 11 a.m.  The Friends Book Sale tables are still not accessible at the moment.  Please do not bring items to be donated to the library for the next couple of months as we have no place to put them.  Thank you.  There will be no Lunch & Learn for the month of November because of the Thanksgiving holiday.  And finally, the Elma Ross Public Library will be closed on Thursday (November 25th) and Friday (November 26th) in observance of Thanksgiving.

            Happy Reading!

            Many, many, many thanks and a hearty round of applause to Mr. Tom Lea who gave our presentation for Lunch & Learn last week.  Thank you so much.  Your talent with floral arranging is phenomenal.  Thank you for sharing your talents with us.  There will be NO Lunch & Learn programs in November of December because of the holidays.  Lunch & Learn will resume in January 2011.

            Friends Night at the Library will take place on Tuesday, November 16th at 7 p.m.  Our guest speaker will be Dr. Joan Hartman.  Dr. Hartman has written a book titled “Grace Finds Gold.”    Please join with us as we welcome Dr. Hartman back to Brownsville.  She visited with us when her first book “Sam’s Special Cookie” came out.  All are invited to attend.

            Toddler Time is offered on the first and third Mondays of each month at 11 a.m.  The next Toddler Time program will take place on Monday, November 15th.  Please join us for stories and coloring.

            The library will be closed on Thursday, November 25th and Friday, November 26th in observance of the Thanksgiving holidays.

            Please excuse our mess.  We are in the midst of having new carpet installed.  We will be having periodic section closings during this process.  We will announce these section closings on the library facebook page.

            Due to the ongoing renovations here at the library, the Friends Book Sale has been temporarily suspended.  The sale will resume after the renovations are completed.  Thank you.

            Happy Reading!
