We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls questions@heyworthlibrary.com

Weekly Newsletter ~ December 19, 2012

Thank you to the friends and family of Helen Robeson who have made memorial gifts in her honor at the Heyworth Public Library. It is through these gifts and memorials that we can offer services and materials that go beyond the ordinary.  For more information on gifts, memorials or bequests contact the director, Beth Porter, at 473-2313.

Stop by and see the Twelve Days of Christmas figurines on loan from Nancy Beveridge this holiday season.  They are on display in our memorial case.  We also have a collection of hand crafted greeting cards made by Kristy Zalucka in our entry way display area showcasing her creative talent.  We are always seeking collections, hobbies, artwork, and memorabilia to display in the library.  The talent and collections in our community continually amaze and delight visitors to the library.  Please let us know if you could provide a display in the new year!

If you follow the library on Facebook, you might already know of our Elf on the Shelf who has been playing in our displays and on our shelves this past week.  He has been named Dewey, and you can view him in the library each day or visit our FB page to see what he is up to.  Just remember if you touch Dewey the elf, he will lose his magic.  Stop by and visit our Elf on the Shelf and let him catch you reading this December!

Thank you to the Heyworth General Federated Women’s Club for their donation of the following books:  The 2548 Wittiest Things Anybody Ever Said by Robert Byrne, and Unlikely Friendships by Jennifer S. Holland.
