5/7/18 Author Gary Beyer comes to the Mill Pond Library


  This month we are moving the regular meeting of the Loosely Bound book club to the 4th Thursday of the month, May 24th at 6pm and we will discuss the book A Bell for Adano.  We are doing this so that author Gary Beyer can come and give a presentation on the last Thursday of the month, May 31st at 6pm..  Mr. Beyer describes himself as a "glass half-full" type of person.  The title of his presentation is "Inspiring Hope in the Face of Life-Altering Circumstances.  Gary was an English high school teacher for 35 years and then in Jan. of 2008, he was diagnosed with Inclusion Body Myositis (IBM).  It is an extremely rare, progressive, and debilitating type of inflammatory muscle disease.  There is no known cure or treatment for it at this time.  Since being diagnosed he has written "You Must Answer This" and "I Promise I'll Pay Attention", and feels that both books were each divinely inspired.  He says, "The numerous unexpected developments associated with their creation continue to be highly motivating".  Mr. Beyer's sincere desire is to continue to be able to help other people not lose faith in the face of diversity, and for some to consciously find their own reasons for hope.  The public is invited to attend, and Mr. Beyer said "This is a presentation that everyone can truly benefit from."
 

4/18/18 SPRING FLING - APRIL 21st!!

SPRING FLING…..THIS SATURDAY…..APRIL 21ST…….9AM TO 1PM

Saturday, April 21st seemed like a long way off when we started planning our Spring Fling, but here it is only days away! Friday evening we will be setting everything up. The vendors can come in that night to set up each of their sections. One woman has quilts and handmade cards. Another has purse organizers. There is a vendor who makes wooden toys. Another who makes jewelry. There are 15 different tables that will be set up and I think there are 15 different categories of items being offered. On Saturday morning we will open the doors at 9am and the library will be serving delicious cinnamon rolls, or if you are hungrier than that…try a loaded baked potato! We will have extended hours on Saturday, staying open until 1pm, so stop on by, browse or shop, and have a tasty treat.
