Greetings! I hope you are in good health and looking forward to spring and summer.
Our Annual Meeting and Entertainment will be held on Thursday May 26 at 7:00. Yes, this years meeting is at our beautiful library.
At the meeting we will have a short business meeting and election of officers. Positions on the board are open to any member who would like to join our board. We welcome new members. If you are interested, please call the library and give your name and phone number to the person at the front desk.
Our entertainment this year is a visit with Walt Disney, portrayed by James Froemel of Maidsville in a West Virginia Humanities Council History Alive! Program. Please come enjoy the event. Meet with old friends, make a new friend. After our entertainment we will be having some wonderful desserts for all you sweet tooth’s.
