Fun at the Library

We not only had fun listening to stories about trees, we learned many new and interesting things, were given acorns to plant (we hope our great-grandchildren enjoy the oak trees), and sanded and decorated beechnut tree rounds. Our thanks to Martha and Jim Miller, a great library team!

Sending Kisses

"Kisses" to all who helped with the Library's Third Annual Valentine Chocolate Sale. Thirty-five people donated chocolate goodies of all kinds, several members of the Friends of the Sodus Free Library set up, sliced and priced, and countless people shopped. At the end of the two days, we had made $501.90, more than double last year's total!

A Reminder to Chocolate Lovers

The tables are filling for our 3rd Annual Valentine Chocolate Sale, and the smell is heavenly! So many goodies have already been donated, the sale has been moved into the Library's meeting room. I spotted Chocolate Lava brownies, chocolate chip cookies, a heart-shaped chocolate cake, chocolate rum balls, Que Sera Sarah brownies, and a variety of cookies in handmade paper baskets - I'm so glad I've been saving my pennies! Remember to stop by between noon and 8 p.m. on Thursday and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Friday.
