Please join us Monday, August 15 at the Chenoa VFW Post 8350 at 7:00 pm to hear our local State Representative Dan Brady talk about how state government effects us. He will answer questions and talk about the issues that matter to us locally. The Library’s Consitution Club is sponsoring the event. We will talk, have refreshments and hear a surprise announcement. Chenoa’s Space Age Pioneers 4-H Club will be providing cookies and leading a Pledge of Allegiance ceremony for the event. The Post is located at 215 Green Street in Chenoa. We extend our invitation to anyone who is interested and to our young people.
We are starting the new year at the Library with immense gratitude in our hearts.
We are grateful to Pam and Jim Raymond for their new donation to our new handicap accessible library. They met with us and gave us encouragement and great ideas, along with a generous donation. How wonderful. Thank you Pam and Jim.
We took this lovely picture to celebrate. Here’s Dan Groce, Library Board Vice-President, Pat Witte, Library Board President, Pam Raymond, a great friend of our library, and your Library Director Sheryl.
We are also very thankful to Viola Atkins for her recent donation. Viola is a long-standing book club member and a frequent visitor to our library. Viola embraced e-books at a time in her life when few others her age would have done so.
This week we honor the memory of our dear library friend Joyce Wilson. I first met Joyce at book club in our library. She immediately made me feel welcome. Several times after book club I went to lunch with her. Joyce often cited David Baldacci books as her favorites – especially the Camel Club series.
In the Camel Club books Baldacci brings to life the adventures of four misfit men who live in the Washington, D.C., area. These men meet regularly in isolated places to argue about international politics. Led by a likable guy who calls himself Oliver Stone, the Camel Club is basically an excuse for its members to feel involved and important. But suddenly the four accidentally witness a real high-level conspiracy in action. Joyce loved the humor in the series.
We have the series at the library if you want to read more. We have –
The Camel Club (also in audiobook)
Hell’s Corner (also in audiobook)
