Come join us for our next Library Lecture on Wednesday, March 29th at 7:00 pm.
Using music, photos and videos from his trip, Joe Pratt will share the story of his climb on the highest mountain from the north side in 2012. His goal of the climb was to eradicate polio throughout the world forever.
Come hear the details of one of deadliest days for western climbers in the history of Mount Everest – two climbers died on the north side while four did not return from the south side. This is the first hand account of how Joe managed to be one of two Americans to summit on May 20, 2012. The expedition began in Lhasa Tibet and lasted over six weeks. With temperatures of 35 degrees below zero and winds that literally blew tents off the mountain, it is a story of physical and mental challenge few have experienced. Find out how the death zone of Mount Everest lives up to its name!
Polio is a crippling and potentially fatal disease, which affects primarily children under five. Pratt donates 100 percent of the funds raised at his presentations to this effort. Donations raised are matched two to one by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation for up to $35 million a year through 2018. If fully utilized, the match will represent more than $500 million.
Great fun was had at LEGO Club on Wednesday, February 22. Creative designers included:

Thank you to all those who baked for our Friends Election Day Bake Sale, those who made soup and everyone who purchased items! Over $750 was raised that will go towards enhancing library activities.
The rain held off and we had a great turnout for our annual BOO Parade held on October 27th. Thank you to the folks that we visited: The Country Store, Main Street Art, The Community Church, Town Hall, and the Police Station!
Construction is underway at 76 Main Street – we will be adding 6 additional parking spaces in our lot behind the library! This is very exciting news for all of you who have struggled to find a place to park when visiting us.
Thank you so much to the Friends of the Library who are making this possible! If you are not already a member, this would be a wonderful time to do so and support this wonderful group!

If you noticed several trucks and lots of activity at the library last Sunday – we were the setting for a local film shoot. Our lovely meeting room was used for a scene that may appear in the “The True Believers”. They also used the Country Store as a setting for some other parts of the film. Above is photo of some of the cast and crew.
