Now that the evenings are long and cold, staying home with a good book might have a definite appeal. At the Andes Library, there are some new books available, (listed on the New York Times’ Best Sellers list), to satisfy us stay-at-homes. For example, for those who prefer novels, the library has Her Father’s House by Belva Plain, Sunset in St. Tropez by Danielle Steele, and The Crimson Petal and The White by Michel Faber. Non-fiction readers can find Tom Brokaw’s A Long Way From Home, and Among The Heroes by Jere Longman. So stop by the library and pick up a best seller!
“Let the Games Begin” will be the slogan for a new January to March weekly series called GAME NIGHT to be held at the library on Thursday nights from 7 to 9 pm, and hosted by Linda Jones, beginning on January.16th. You can either bring your own game of choice, or use the library’s sets of Scrabble, chess or checkers. So, this winter, spend an enjoyable and challenging evening with your family and your neighbors at Game Night.
To serve the Andes community better, the library is planning to change its hours of operation by this winter. The library hopes to encourage more people to use the library by having morning hours; by having evening hours that don’t conflict with other village events, and by offering opening times that best serve the needs of the community. The Andes Library staff looks forward to having your input on this issue.
Please keep January 19th at 2 pm, open on your calendar for the Andes Public Library’s Eightieth Birthday Celebration. This special event will be an opportunity to celebrate the library’s eighty years of service to the Andes community. It will also allow the library to thank and show it’s appreciation to the many Friends of the Library who offer so much of their time and talents to support the library. Delicious sweet and savory refreshments will be served, and delightful conversation and camaraderie will be on hand. ~
