Browser library lore June 22 2006

“Hello again, do you like my hat?”
Dr. Seuss certainly had a way with words. Another group of words that rings true is this:
“Build it and they will come.” And guess what? They did. Come to our library, I mean. No, this isn’t about baseball, though there are some really interesting books at our library about the history of baseball. Also, you could even check out “Field of Dreams”. The movie, not the physical place. I mention all this because The Friends of the Library Foundation is holding its annual Wine and Beer Tasting with Silent Auction. Now, you may wonder what this has to do with baseball. Nothing whatsoever! What it does address is building! Proceeds will go to the library building fund. “But!”, you say, “we already built it.” Yes, that is true, but there is still so much to do. Your library should certainly be the very best it can be. This takes cold, hard cash. I don’t mean to be crude, but that’s where you come in…And we’re making it fun for you to help.

Come to Driftwood Resort on June 29 for Wine and Beer Tasting and Silent Auction.
The time is 7:00pm to 9:00pm.
The advance tickets are $15.00.
They can be purchased at Pine River Public Library, Ultimate Liquors on Highway 371 in Pine River, and at Driftwood Resort.
Tickets may also be purchased at the door for $17.00.
Hors d’oeuvres will be served, and music will be provided by PB Jams.

How marvelous and fun is that? Not your style? Then try this…

Our Summerfest Book Sale at the library will be under the tent at the library!
The dates are June 30 through July 2.
Friday 10 – 6
Saturday 10 – 5 + FOOD! Bakesale! How great is that?
Sunday 10 – 2 and everything will be going for $2.00 a bag (except for me, of course. Books about cats, yes, but not the actual creature.)

All proceeds will be going to the library building fund. “Build it and they will…”keep coming back.

Until next time, I remain
-Browser, your library cat.
