A Lifetime Friend

Friends Vice President Lin Locklear, Shirley Patchett, Friends President Lynn Griffith

Our Friends group honored Shirley Patchett at last week's meeting, naming her their first lifetime member. Devoting innumerable volunteer hours of service, Shirley has led various classes, has led the troops through several successful book sales and conceived and has chaired the Holiday Bake Sales and Valentine's Chocolate Sales. Through her popular "Shhhhh!" column in the Sun & Record, she shares her love of the library and keeps the community informed about our activities. Thanks from all of us, Shirley - the honor is well-deserved!

Tuesday's BSI

I've received an email from David Englert with more information on Tuesday's program. He'll be reading a piece of creative nonfiction, "You Might Want To Do Something About That," along with a short story called "The Parson's Ride." Both are original works, and this will be the first time either has been heard in public. I hope you can join us in the Library Annex to hear David share his writings.

There are still a few seats available for next Tuesday's Books-Sandwiched-In. David Englert will be sharing two of his short stories with us. Call the Library at 483-9292 to reserve your spot. The monthly meeting of our Friends group will follow at 1:30 p.m.

NOTE: The luncheon and meeting will be in our new Annex, not the Library's meeting room. (Just one more reason to attend!)

Thanks To Our Friends!

We had a great time at our Friends Open House yesterday. Thanks to Friends President Lynn Griffith and her wonderful team for making the day such a success. I had planned on taking lots of pictures, but I was too busy showing off our "Annex!" I did take this one before we started.

We heard many library memories, and collected several suggestions; if you weren't able to attend, we'd still love to hear from you. Stop by the Library any time to share your thoughts. As the expansion project gets underway, we'll be hosting focus groups to gather more ideas and suggestions from Sodus residents. If you'd like to take part in these in-depth discussions, give me a call or leave a comment here.

You're Invited

Join us for our Friends Open House from 4 to 5:30 p.m. on Tuesday, April 13th. There will be stations set up around the library where you can learn about our Friends group and all the great things they do for us. After you've toured the building, please come visit us next door at 19 Maple Avenue for a sneak peak at our newly acquired property. We're asking everyone to write a sentence or two about how libraries have affected their lives. We'll also have a suggestion box available so you can share your ideas of how we can serve you even better in the future. Refreshments will be served at the end of your walk through the stations. I'm looking forward to seeing you there!
