He visited cities, villages, temples, jungles, rice terraces, beaches and snorkeling sites. Hartley’s presentation will introduce the country, its people and their way of life.

We are happy to announce a collaboration with the Roots Brewing Company again to raise money for books at the library. The Brew for Books fundraiser will be held on Wednesday, February 24 at 6:30 at Roots. We’ll pass the hat again for donations and you can choose whether your money goes to print books or downloadable books. We’ll also have a prize wheel that each of you can spin to win a prize. The prizes include Roots tokens good for 1 beer, coupons to the library book sale and more. In addition, Roots will be giving the library $1 for each beer purchased during the event. Last year we raised almost $1000 that went to the reading pleasure of our library patrons. We appreciate your support and especially enjoyed the good conversation last year.
