Welcome, May! As everyone at the Dalton Community Library re-energizes from the busy month of April, we still have plenty of busy days ahead of us for the next few months. Keep reading our monthly Abington Journal column for details or check our website, lclshome.org.
First, we’d like to thank our community for taking part in our Book and Bake Sale last month. This sale was outstanding since there wasn’t a moment that wasn’t busy. We saw people from many areas, both near and far, who came to visit and shop. We are most grateful!
We’d like to thank the following businesses for their donations of food and drinks: Starbucks, Beta Bread of Clarks Summit, and Royal Buffet. We’d also like to thank all patrons who visited, baked goodies, donated books or spread the word about our sale. With everyone’s help, this sale was a great one.
The month of May will bring a very special program to our library. Making Books Come To Life is a program by Tracy Doherty-Williams, who will give a presentation of the children’s book “Pinkalicious” at 6 p.m. Monday, May 8. All kids are invited to this free event. Come a few minutes early for a good seat. It’s sure to be fun!
Also in May, The Friends of the Dalton Community Library’s Herb Sale will take place. This sale will be held from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 20. There will be herbs and perennials for sale, in addition to a few gardening and flower magazines and books available. The location for this event is the Dalton Fire Hall. This is also the same day as the mile-long yard sale along North Turnpike Road. Anyone interested is encouraged to come check out this special gathering.
We hope everyone has a fantastic month! We want families to know that preparations for children’s summer activities and the summer reading program are underway. Here’s a little tidbit of opening program information coming up in June: The Endless Mountain Nature Center will do a presentation and bring along live birds. This will be a free event, open to all ages. I will be revealing final details in next month’s Dalton Library Delights.
