Thank you to everyone that helped with our centennial party, from all the people that pitched in to all the people that came to enjoy the festivities and honor the library, from Harriet Jackson Groh’s singing and memories of the library to the fantastic ice cream “scooper” team, Patty’s popular memory scroll to tent set up and take-down, there were enough people to make it work smoothly and well, and I’m pleased that so many people came out on an event-filled Sunday to spend time with us.

During the event, some people asked if the Friends of the Library would have the just released stationery cards available for sale after the event. Yes, they are available now at the library as well as our sun catchers. We also have a good many of the fans left. To get the best price we had to purchase quite a few, so if you want an extra, or didn’t get a chance to pick up one of these mementos, we still have them.

We are jumping into fall this week with our scarecrow line-up—if you took a scarecrow frame to decorate for us, we’d like it back by this Friday, as 11 a.m. Saturday we will be having the unveiling. We will have refreshments, including some Graeter’s Ice Cream. We purchased enough not to run out on Sunday, so we have some left, and we want to share it.

Now for some regular library stuff, such as what books are coming out. James Patterson has his late summer stand-alone with “Murder House,” set in the decadent Hamptons. Jan Karon pulls from the Mitford well again with “Come Rain or Come Shine,” this time focusing on Dooley Kavanagh, all grown up and getting married.

Popular inspirational fiction author Kim Vogel Sawyer finishes her Zimmerman Restoration Trilogy with “When Love Returns,” and Iris Johansen continues the Eve Duncan saga with “Shadow Play.” Nonfiction books include Bill O’Reilly’s latest “Killing Reagan,” and a rather serious book purchased recently is “Let There Be Water: Israel’s Solution For A Water-Starved World” by Seth Siegal.

I realize after the earlier part of this summer water shortages don’t seem likely, but the fight for water out west, and then having enough clean water for agricultural purposes is not a given any more. As always, this is just a tiny sampling of what we add. I can forecast that there will be lots of new juvenile books added as well this week.
