The next book discussion will be held on the second Tuesday,
March 14 at 1:30. We will be discussing The Personal Librarian by Marie Benedict. A remarkable novel about J. P. Morgan’s personal librarian, Belle daCosta Greene, the Black American woman who was forced to hide her true identity and pass as white in order to leave a lasting legacy that enriched our nation. The story of a woman, famous for her intellect, style, and wit, and the lengths she must go to preserve her carefully crafted white identity in the racist world in which she lives.
Our book displays this month are
The Eyes of March and Irish Eyes are Smiling.
The Friends of Richards Memorial Library would like to thank Judith Friend and Marilyn McDeed for their many years of volunteer service to our organization. Fundraising takes many hours of strategies, planning, planning again, and expediting, along with managing whatever changes are needed at the last minute. Both of these remarkable women spent many hours in whatever capacity was needed to promote visibility for the Friends to the public. For just one example: the hours spent collecting books, sorting and packing, setting up, working, and breaking down our Annual Book Sale. Judy would run the delicious Baked Goods table at the sale and Marilyn would be at the checkout table, tallying up the costs of your purchases. They both brought so much experience and knowledge to the group. We will miss their input and gracious smiles very much. Thanks to both of you again for your years of service.
There are four display boards in our downstairs Art Gallery just waiting for your art work! If you are interested in exhibiting please contact Marjorie Johnson, Adult Services Librarian at firstname.lastname@example.org
