December Newsletter by Vi Lovejoy

cropped-cropped-cropped-chetcoBanner1.jpgWith the cold mornings we have been experiencing, it looks as though we are getting ready for both winter and the upcoming holidays. First, the Chetco Community Public Library would like to thank all the volunteers who helped with this year’s Friends of the Library Holiday Book Sale last month. Thank you too to the community and all those who made purchases. Your support made the sale a big success.

There is a special program coming up on Thursday, December 10, at 6:00 p.m. in the Library’s large meeting room. “Wild About Mushrooms,” a program about mushroom identification, will be presented by Kathleen Dickson. Kathleen is an amateur “expert” on many of the mushrooms one can expect to find along the southern Oregon Coast. Dickson got her introduction to the world of edible wild mushrooms through the friendships she forged with local mushroom harvesters, first learning how to identify and pick coastal mushrooms like the chanterelle, black trumpet, and hedgehog, then by immersing herself in the commercial mushroom industry.

Dickson is the co-founder of the Wild Rivers Mushroom Club and co-owner with her husband, Rich, of OtterBee’s Farm & Fungi, a Brookings company whose focus is local fruits, vegetables, and wild edible mushrooms. This program is sponsored by Friends of the Chetco Library and everyone is invited to attend this free program.

Linda Mulvany, children’s librarian, tells us that there are a lot of exciting children’s activities this month. This month “Elf on the Shelf” comes back to the library. Every day that mischievous elf will find a new hiding place. Children 11 years and younger who discover where he’s hiding will get a surprise gift.

On Wednesday, December 16, at 10:00 a.m. come and visit with Santa as there will be no Storytime this morning.

Join us for a special night of holiday storytelling with surprise guests, songs and refreshments on Friday, December 18, at 7:00 p.m. Children are invited to come in their pajamas.

Storytime continues on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 a.m. with seasonal themes. For our after-school craft program, there is an exciting line-up of arts and crafts for the month—creating paper bag puppets, tree ornaments, paper trees, presents for friends and family, and fabric designs. Pick up a calendar at the library or check out our website for details. 

We are still looking for donations of Legos for a library Lego Club.  We are also looking for a volunteer to help with arts and crafts on Tuesday afternoons from 4:00 – 5:00 p.m. Please contact Linda Mulvany at the library for more information.

Tricky Twenty-Two, by Janet Evanovich. The New Jersey bounty hunter Stephanie Plum pursues a fraternity member arrested for beating up a college dean and investigates a murder.

The Guilty, by David Baldacci. The government hit man Will Robie investigates murder charges against his estranged father in their Mississippi hometown.

All Dressed in White, by Mary Higgins Clark and Alafair Burke. A TV producer investigates a bride’s disappearance for her show Under Suspicion.

We are also looking for volunteers to bring their own favorite game or host one of ours. Have questions about International Games Day? Visit the International Games Day page at igd.ala.org/about or call Linda at 541-469-7738.
