Mineola Memorial Library Notes


Greetings to all! I believe fall has finally arrived. We have lots of books to curl up and read while the weather is not cooperating with outside activities.

The annual Board Meeting and Open House is scheduled for Thursday, Dec. 13. The board meeting will be at 4 p.m. and is open to the public. Following the board meeting at 5 p.m. is our annual Open House. We will have musical entertainment and refreshments. Please, stop by and hear what is happening at the Library.

Remember, we are doing a Book Drive to collect books for Caring & Sharing. We are accepting new books and our goal is 300 books for children infant through age 13. As an added bonus, if you owe a fine, a new book donated to the drive will remove $5 from that balance.

The next Library Book Club read is A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens. How many of you have read this short story? Or are you like me and have only seen about every movie version out there? Joins us on Thursday, Dec. 20 at 6 p.m. to discuss this Christmas classic.

Children’s programs continue on Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday.

Some of you have visited and noticed changes inside of the Library. The movies that grown-ups may enjoy are near the back computers along with music CDs, and our newest addition: puzzles that may be checked out for two weeks. We have moved our International Collection (books written in Spanish, Korean, Polish, German, and Japanese) and our Texana Collection (books about Texas, set in Texas, or written by Texas authors) have joined our audio books in the center aisle. Large print books have moved to the area formerly occupied by movies and audio books.

As if that were not enough rearranging. children’s series books such as Hank the Cowdog, Magic Treehouse, Cupcake Diaries, and Geronimo Stilton (to name a few) have traded places with juvenile non-fiction books. All the fiction works are now together and the non-fiction resides along the Lane of Learning.

Sometimes you just need to rearrange things so you can remember what all you have. We redecorate and rearrange in our homes and sometimes it happens at the Library as well.
