Samuels Public Library celebrating National Friends of Libraries Week with annual book sale

Published

on

Samuels Public Library is joining libraries across the nation October 18th-24th to celebrate Friends organizations who do so much to support local libraries around the county.

The Friends of Samuels Library (FOSL) was established in 1994 and over the years has raised more than $75,000 to support library programs. Currently, FOSL boasts more than 200 members who contribute annually to FOSL, and nearly 30 of these members actively volunteer their time to assist the group with fundraising efforts that include operating Epilogue, a used-book store, sponsoring informative programs and Samuels Library’s annual fundraiser, A Taste for Books, and hosting an annual used book sale.

“The library is a priceless asset to the people of our community and our local friends’ organization is dedicated to supporting the very best library programming and resources that are available for free for everyone to enjoy,” said Melody Hotek, FOSL president.

This year, FOSL will host their annual fall Book Sale during National Friends of Library Week. The book sale will feature a variety of more than 4000 books and DVDs. The sale will run October 23rd – 24th from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm with a special preview night on October 22 for FOSL members only. Books range in price from $.50 – $3.00. A special Name-Your-Own-Price Day will be held October 26th from 10:00 am – 3:00 pm. Social distancing guidelines will be in place including a requirement of face coverings, only 10 people will be allowed in book sale area at a time, and entry/exit to the book sale will take place through patio door ONLY.

“This has been a challenging year for everyone with COVID19,” said Michelle Ross, library director. “We are so thankful for our very active FOSL group that supports our exceptional programming, but also volunteers at our library to help us provide the best services and resources to the citizens of Warren County.”

Published

on

On January 9th, the Front Royal Church of Christ held a tea party for six little girls. Jane McCool and Tenia Smith hosted the event, and the girls shared it with their doll babies and special stuffed animals.

The menu included finger sandwiches of ham and cheese with baby spinach leaves, fruit trays, cheese and tomatoes, scones, and mini cupcakes.

The girls made their own Facilitators (Hats) for the tea party. A game was also led by Tenia, called “Freeze”, which included their baby dolls and stuffed animals. Songs were sung with merry hearts from little girls’ voices. And lastly, tea party favors of white gloves and jewelry were given as keepsakes to remember their ‘Dolly & Me’ Tea Party.
