The staff of the Elma Ross Public Library wishes everyone a happy, healthy, safe, and blessed Thanksgiving holiday. The library will be CLOSED on Thursday (Nov. 28th) and Friday (Nov. 29th) in observance of the holiday. Blessings to you.
If you missed Friends Night last week, you missed a great presentation. Extra hearty thanks is given to Dr. Robert Rooks, who presented his new book “100 Years of Haywood Tomcat Football.” This book is phenomenal! We never knew so much about the football history here in Haywood County. Thank you, Dr. Rooks, for not only writing such a wonderfully informative book, but for presenting such a great program about it here at the library.
December starts in just a few days. Here is a calendar of events for the library:
Monday, December 2nd we have Toddler Time (all toddlers and their caregivers are invited to listen to stories, and have a color/craft) at 11am and the Free Basic Skills Computer Class (first come, first served, limit of 10 people) at 2pm.
Tuesday, December 3rd the library will be CLOSED so that all the library staff may attend an all-day In-Service Training event with our Regional Library. We apologize for any inconvenience that this may cause.
Friday, December 6th is Gingerbread House Family Night at 7pm. We will hear the story of the Gingerbread Boy and Gingerbread Friends, then build deliciously scrumptious gingerbread houses from milk cartons, frosting, graham crackers and candy. Reservations are required as space is limited. Please call 772-9534 to make your reservations today.
Monday, December 16th we will have Toddler Time again at 11am, all toddlers and their caregivers are invited to attend.
The library will be closed the following days for the Christmas holiday: Tuesday, December 24th; Wednesday, December 25th; and Thursday, December 26th.
Happy Reading!

There is one day left to get your bid in for one of the 5 computers that we have available for auction. These computers are set up on a table located just inside the Children’s area of the library. There is a bid sheet at each computer. You may bid on one or more of the computers. Final bids will be accepted until 5pm on Friday, November 22nd. Good luck everyone. These computers need good homes.
There is NO Lunch & Learn program scheduled for next week or for the month of December. Lunch & Learn will return in the January 2014.

Um, did you just see what we think that we just saw? Was that a Gingerbread Boy that just ran around the corner? Why yes, it was. Gingerbread House Family Night will soon be here.
