LIBRARY NOTES – March 2014

So, the calendar tells us that March 20th is the first day of Spring.  I’m not sure I believe it. Judging by the amount of snow that has been falling as I write this, there’s a good chance that Andes will still be reclining under a thick white blanket of coldness come mid-March. Ah well. There’s always April (or May, or June….).

Audiobook aficionados rejoice! Not only has a new set of 45 titles just been delivered from Four County as part of the Audio Circuit program, but we’ve also recently received a generous donation of over 20 other audiobooks. The circuit packet includes such titles as For Crew and Country by John Wukovits, The Power of Habit by Charles Duhigg, Death of a Kingfisher by M.C. Beaton and Graffiti Moon by Catherine Crowley. The donated items include titles by authors such as Tom Clancy, James Patterson, Clive Cussler and Stuart Woods. Before your next trip, be sure to come by the library to check out what’s available. A good book always seems to make the longest drive more enjoyable.

In order to combat the cabin fever which is impacting so many of us, we’ve decided it’s time to restart our Movie Night series. First up will be a film billed as “A genuinely creepy descent into gothic horror.”  Although the credits list such actors as Bill Sage, Ambyr Childers and Wyatt Russell, we know the real talent of this flick is a gentleman by the name of Don Hogan. Yes folks, on Thursday, March 13 at 7:00 we will be showing the movie that was shot right here in and around Andes. You’ll see Woody’s Country Kitchen, Hogan’s General Store, and a host of other familiar sites. Bring your friends, bring your family, and let’s see what came out of all the hub-bub around town during the filming.

Other ongoing events to remember are the Italian Circle on the 3rd Thursday of each month at 7 pm,  our book group, the LitWits, on the 1st Thursday at 5 pm and Story Hour for the little ones each Wednesday morning at 11.  If you’re interested in anything involving needles, threads, yarn and such, the Stitch Witches meet at the library on the 2nd and 4th Mondays of the month from 2 – 4 pm. Everyone is welcome at any or all of these events. Call us here at the library for more information; phone number is 845-676-3333.  ~
