November 12, 2021 - The library would like to thank all the Friends of the Library and others who helped with the Library's Fall Book Sale. There was only one week to get ready for the sale and one day to take it down. Everyone was amazing.

It was a great sale and the money will go to buying new books. Also, a big thank you to all who attended and bought books. Maybe you were able to find a new favorite author or that book you have been looking for. Just as important we were able to raise awareness of the Library in our community.

November 12, 2021 - On November 10, 2021 VFW Post 8904 Life Member Michael Wulf joined the Center Garden Club at the Blue Star Memorial and placed their Memorial Wreath in honor of Veterans Day.

November 10, 2021 - At the invitation of the Jessie Allen Wise Garden Club of Jefferson, Texas, Center Garden Club President Carolyn Bounds presented Jefferson’s November program entitled “Colonial Williamsburg Decorates for Christmas” in which she discussed the enduring appeal of the Colonial Williamsburg style, outlined its most interesting history, and via video shared how to create both the interior and exterior natural Christmas decorations. The Jessie Allen Wise Garden Club, founded in 1939, has been a leading force in the preservation and restoration of Jefferson’s many historical treasures. The program and the business meeting were held in the exquisite historical dining room of the Excelsior House Hotel which the club owns and operates.

November 10, 2021 - Last Wednesday, November 3rd, preschoolers enjoyed a program at the Fannie Brown Booth Library Preschool Story Time. Mrs. Terri Lacher read a story to the children about Fall. The children listened to a story about the leaves changing colors and falling from the trees. Mrs. Lacher asked questions about the story which the children were eager to answer.

Following the story, Librarian Sandra Davis and volunteer Roy Davis had a variety to crafts for the children to make related to the Fall theme. One of the activities included drawing their handprint as if it were a tree and then gluing heart-shaped leaves onto the tree with some of the leaves falling to the ground. Parents and grandparents who attended with the children enjoyed sharing in the craft time and getting to visit with each other.

Preschool Story Time is offered at 10:30am each Wednesday at the Library at no cost. We appreciate Librarian Sandra Davis and the volunteers who work so hard to make this program both an enjoyable and learning opportunity for our youngest library patrons. Parents and grandparents and other special adults are invited to attend with the Preschool children and join in the fun.

Mary Lynn Tinkle

November 10, 2021 - The Center Woman’s Reading Club met on Thursday, October 21st at the FUMC fellowship hall.

Club member and this year’s president, Mary Lynn Tinkle presented reports on two books she read in 8th grade that made an impact on her life. 

The first presentation was 'The Hidden Staircase' by Carolyn Keene. It was the 2nd book in the Nancy Drew series. There are 64 Nancy Drew books. Nancy Drew was an amateur sleuth with qualities that were not typical of a young girl in the 60’s. She grew up with her father and a housekeeper – no mother. She was conservative. Armed with her determination, problem solving skills and a flashlight, Nancy Drew solved many many mysteries. For Mary Lynn and thousands of young girls, she was a true role model.

Mary Lynn’s second report was about 'Black Like Me' by John Howard Griffin. Black Like Me is an extraordinary book about racism. Griffin, a Texas native, went through a rigorous process to have his skin temporarily darkened to he could truly pass as a black man. He traveled for six weeks throughout the racially segregated states of Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas and Georgia to explore life as a black man. For Mrs. Tinkle, a white middle class girl, it made quite an impact on her, for life. 

Guests are always welcome. Please contact the club membership coordinator, Monty Jones, at 936-598-5757 if you are interested in visiting the club.

November 9, 2021 - The Center Woman’s Reading Club met on Thursday, September 16th at the FUMC fellowship hall. The meeting kicked off the club’s 21-22 season.

Club member Fannie Watson presented an informative and inspirational report on the book 100 Bible Verses That Made America written by Robert J. Morgan.

The Bible has had a great influence in American history starting with the founding of our nation. The book shows the verses and then shares how they played a part in a significant event in American history. Some of the events are well known, such as the attacks of 9/11, and other events are not well known. But each one had a role in building and shaping our country.

Guests are always welcome. Please contact the club membership coordinator, Monty Jones, at 936-598-5757 if you are interested in visiting the club.
