National Library Week

Good Morning all,
It is a new week and the sun is shining. Last week Jill Nelson, new author from Madison Minnesota visited the library to talk about her new book, "Reluctant Runaway". She also talked about publishing and ate a piece of pie while visiting with her fans. The Federated Womens Club served pie to the community in the Community Center in Canby with all the proceeds going to the library. Many people were at the library to hear Jill's presentation, then headed down the hall for a piece of pie. The author signing and pie day were tied in with National Library week. The library was decorated with balloons, airplanes, and kites to represent the theme "Get Carried Away, Read". All those who visited the library were given a special bookmark as a gift for visiting and touring the library. Many thanks go out to Jill for honoring us with her presence and to the womens club for organizing the fundraiser for the library.
