With Connie & Shauna

  • Well, FALL has officially arrived, hasn’t it? Time for sweatshirts and hoodies, hot chocolate, bonfires, working a puzzle, or snuggling up with a good book. We have NEW books, as well as New To Us Books, going on the shelf every week. Stop in and check one out. We post the “NEW” ones on our Facebook page, so be sure to follow us. Are you also following along with us every day at 3:00 for a story? I love taking just a few minutes out of every day to post a story for the kiddos. If you haven’t joined us yet, make today the day you do. Looking for something to do as a family? We have just the thing for ya. GAME NIGHT is the 1st Thursday of every month at 4:00pm. We have games and puzzles for all ages. Stop in and join us. You’ll be glad ya did. Our SIT & STITCH group has decided to begin meeting EVERY Friday 11-1 and/or 4-6. Come to one or both timeslots, or stay all day. We’re working to gather patterns to share with everyone, and the filing cabinet and shelving willbe moved in very shortly to keep all our supplies stored. So, if you’d like to learn or already know how to knit, crochet, cross stitch, sew, embroider, plastic canvas, whatever crafty project you enjoy, bring it in and enjoy some “me time” with a great group of ladies. Every week we have more new people, and we couldn’t be happier to see this group continue to grow. Our PLARN MAT group continues to meet every 3rd Friday of each month, during our Sit & Stitch @ 4:00, to prep bags to make mats for our deployed military. Y’all have no idea just how much they appreciate our efforts. Won’t you consider joining us to help, in such a small way, to support those you fight for our freedoms? Winter is just around the corner y’all and we need to keep our bodies moving. Why not join us for our SENIOR STRETCH ? We’ll keep those joints and muscles moving with easy chair exercises. Stop in the 3rd Sat of every month at 11:00 and stretch with us. Our LARGE PRINT books are being replenished often from the West Virginia Library Commissson. The program hasbeen a big success with the patrons. Looking for a particular book in LARGE PRINT? Let us know. We’ll do our best to locate it for ya. DID YOU KNOW…..that if we don’t have the book you’re looking for on our shelf, we can have another library in ourstate, send it to us, for you? That’s right. And it won’t cost you a thing. Our PAPERBACK EXCHANGE is always getting new books added to it. We just had a ton of WESTERNS donated to us, and they are on the shelf now and ready for you. Do you have a loved one who’s struggling with Dementia? Or, do you care for someone who has it? Then you’ll want to come and talk with Jami Myers, as she gives us Supportive Techniques and answers our questions. She’ll help us to better understand what those with Dementia deal with and go through on a daily basis, as well as give us, who care for them, some help in doing so. I think we all know someone who has struggled with this very thing. If that someone is YOU, you’re not alone. It’s not easy for those with dementia or for those caring for them. Come, let Jami help. She’ll be here at the library on Tuesday, October 5 at 5:00. Remember to keep an eye on our Facebook Page, Lynn Murray Memorial Library, to see all the upcoming events we have in store for you. You’ll also find our 3:00 Story, NEW RELEASE books, New To Us books, pictures from our events, and so much more. Until next time…. grab a book and let your imagination take you places you’ve never been. Connie and Shauna
