LIBRARY NOTES —October 2013

Well, our movie screen may not be the largest, the seats are probably a bit hard, and the popcorn comes from a bag, but August’s screening of the movie 42: the Jackie Robinson Story was very well attended. From the comments afterward, it seemed that everyone truly enjoyed the film. What I found particularly touching was how many of the attendees stayed after to help us dismantle the equipment and move chairs and tables back to their normal places. Their assistance was so appreciated, and so indicative of what is special about a small community such as ours. At this writing, the September movie showing has not yet happened, but Matt Damon’s Promised Land is scheduled; the October selection is still undecided. Movie Nights at the Andes Public Library are on the fourth Thursday of the month starting at 7 pm.

Our dedicated and energetic Board of Trustees is once again planning a Silent Auction to raise funds in support of the library and its endeavors. They are actively seeking items and services to be auctioned off at the event to be held on Saturday, November 16thContact Gloria Carlson at 676-4765 or call us here at the library if you have something you want to donate to this worthy cause. Plan on joining us for what is sure to be an exciting afternoon. Remember, while we do receive some financial support from the Town of Andes, the funds used for acquiring books, DVDs, computers and programs come from donations, grants and fundraisers such as this.
PHOTO word gamesDo you enjoy playing word and board games? An avid group of gamers have been coming to the library monthly to share their favorites with the group. In September they played something new called Banana! Lots of laughter emanates from this program. The next meeting will be on Tuesday, October 8th. Do think about coming any second Tuesday.

The library’s book discussion group continues to meet monthly on the first Thursday at 5 pm. For October they will be discussing Seven Locks by Christine Wade. If you’d like to be added to the list for information, contact Phyllis Galowitz at  or leave a message here at the library. ~
