Spring is busting out all over.......

Spring has sprung at the library and that means the librarians are cooking up all kind of neat projects. First up is the Annual Easter Egg Hunt. What fun! This year we will be holding it on April 5th at 11:00 AM at the Library Annex on Nettles Street. We are planning a fun experience with lots of prizes and surprises. So mark your calendars and plan to join us on April 5th at 11:00 AM.

The response to our “Sowing the Leeds of Life” basket contest has been great. Brenda and I will be taking the basket on the road this week. We are attempting to raise $200.00 to give to the Relay for Life committee. The basket is available for view at the Library. A chance to win costs $1.00. The drawing will be at “The Taste of Relay” on April 21st. The “Taste of Relay” will be held at the old Bishopville High School gym at 6:30PM and tickets are $5.00. Let’s support this cause and help the committee with its fine work.

More Partnerships.......

Another partnership we are celebrating is teaming up with “Relay for Life.’ Once again, Librarian Brenda has come forward and offered her custom crafted basket we are calling “Sow the Seeds for Life.” The basket is available for viewing at the library until April 21st, when the library will donate the proceeds to the “Relay for Life” committee and they will offer opportunity tickets for the basket at their fundraiser “Taste of Relay” to be held at the old Bishopville High Gym.

The “Taste of Relay” is a new offering to the community from the “Relay For Life” committee and it sounds like a winner. Tickets to attend will be offered to the community at a very reasonable price and if you find a special food offering you like, the recipe will be available to you. This sounds like such a win-win for the community I can’t wait to participate.

Let us not forget to support the South Carolina Quilt Show. Yikes, it’s fifteen years old. Can you believe it? Doris Winstead will be displaying quilts all over downtown Bishopville in the next week or two. The library, as in the past, will be featuring quilting books and history in the library.

Support your community in the effort to improve and enrich all of our lives. Visit the library, visit an older friend, support the efforts of others. We are all in this together!
