May 22, 2015 - We received our first boxes of new books bought by the Friends of the Library spring book sale proceeds. It is always like Christmas morning when we open the boxes. For those of you who wait for the dog days of summer to read, we are now well stocked. There is a good selection of mysteries, light fiction and some great romance reading for the beach. For children, Sandra selected some new series for both boys and girls. We also received the new David McCullough novel, The Wright Brothers. He tells the story of Wilbur and Orville Wright. The house they lived in had no electricity or indoor plumbing, but there were books aplenty, supplied mainly by their preacher father, and they never stopped reading. This novel is a tribute to American ingenuity and a great advertisement for the power of reading.
The Center Noon Lion’s Club summer reading program at the library is close at hand with this year’s program having live animals, magicians, puppeteers, and a special visit from the game warden and the fire department. The events begin on June 11th at 10:30 a.m. for the 4-8 year olds and at 2:00 p.m. for the 9-12 year olds.

April 9, 2015 - The Woman's Reading Club met on April 2 at the John C. Rogers Gallery. Mrs. Deborah Chadwick was hostess. Vice-president Janene Walker presided. There were seventeen members present and a special guest visiting from Florida, Mrs. Vickie Anderson Shannon, the daughter of member Mrs. Linda Anderson.
Following the business meeting, Mrs. Barbara Prince, program leader, reviewed Condoleezza Rice's memoir: Extraordinary, Ordinary People, an account of her family heritage and her life prior to serving as the Bush administration's Secretary of State.
Born in Birmingham in 1954, Condoleezza was the daughter of hardworking parents who valued education, family, work, and church. Her parents imparted to her their conviction that one could alter her/his situation through education, and her life has certainly been a validation of their belief. She not only earned a PhD, served as a professor and Provost at Stanford and held high-level government positions, but also authored books, triumphed as a concert pianist, and served on the boards of major corporations, such as Chevron and Transamerica. Her inspirational account is a story of the American Dream realized.
Following the program, Mrs. Chadwick treated members to delicious and beautifully presented refreshments prepared by the culinary students of Center High School.
