LIBRARY NOTES — February 2013

apl library-thumbnailBy Barbara Mellon

The holidays are over and here in the Andes Public Library we’ve packed away the Christmas and Hanukah decorations for another year. But that doesn’t mean we are without festive reminders of the season. Now on display is a delightful collection of snowmen, courtesy of Lesley Gray. In a variety of sizes and materials, these cheerful fellows are sure to bring a smile to the face of even the most hardened snow decrier among us (yes, Dick Liddle, I’m talking about you). Next time you’re in the vicinity, do come in to see this celebration of one of the joys of winter.

Our prior featured display was an absolutely lovely assortment of china teacups which had been loaned to us by our own Gloria Carlson. Many an afternoon I found myself imagining being at a garden party sipping a bit of hot, lemony tea out of these delicate vessels while conversing with a group of ladies wearing fancy dresses and huge hats covered in netting. Ah, imagination. What a wonderful thing. And what better place to stimulate your imagination than at the library? Our shelves are crammed with books about history and art, cooking and music, philosophy and poetry, and people, people, people; books written by artists who paint pictures with words. Come browse upstairs and down; you’re sure to find something that will appeal to you. ~
