Greetings, friends and neighbors!
National Gaming Day at your library is Saturday, Nov. 12. I have given thought to this from a feline point of view. Game? That would be "...wild animals, birds, or fish, hunted for food or sport..." [The American Heritage Dictionary]. My kind of game. Apparently, though, this is not that sort of game. I get vision of dozens of wild animals turned loose in the library and everybody chases them. Fun! But no, this isn't what is meant at all. "A way of amusing oneself; pastime; version." [American Heritage Dictionary]. Same thing, isn't it? Muriel say not. She says, "The library will have games out on every table on this day, so if you sit at a table we ask you to play a game." Come to the Pine River Public Library from 10 am until 1 pm on Saturday, Nov. 12 and have fun playing games. I'll be there trying to figure out why this is more fun than chasing wild animals, birds or fish.
Friday, Nov. 11 is Veteran's Day. Our library will be closed that day. Honor your veterans. They have put their lives on the line for you.
