The holidays are over and the LCOPL is excited to start the new year. We have so much going on here that we decided to let you know about everything in one succinct blog post. You are welcome.
On Tuesday, January 21st at noon, Tom Franklin and Beth Ann Fennelly will be our guests for Books & Lunch. We are serving food, so please call us 662(234-5751) to register for this event.
Tuesday, January 28th at 6pm we are hosting a craft night for adults.
Have Fun with Fabric Yo-Yo’s
Althea Church will lead us in an easy fabric craft project. Fabric Yo-Yo’s can be made into hair barrettes, jewelry, even clothing! We’ll make a snow-white brooch for winter, or a Valentine blossom you can wear as a pin or decorate a package with. All materials will be provided so please pre-register.
From right this minute until the Super Bowl on February 2nd, we are collecting canned good for our wonderful Pantry. So, if you are in the grocery hoarding Velveeta due to the shortage rumors, grab some soup and bring it to us.
February is also going to be an exciting month. In conjunction with the 11th annual Oxford Film Festival, we will be screening three movies that were filmed in Mississippi. The films will be shown in our auditorium and will be free and open to the public.
My Dog Skip – Friday, February 7th at 1 pm & Saturday, February 8th at 10 am
Intruder in the Dust – Friday, February 7th at 3 pm & Saturday, February 8th at 3 pm
The Help – Saturday, February 8th at Noon
We are very excited about collaborating with the Library Ambassadors, the Center for Southern Culture, University of Mississippi Libraries, and the William Winter Institute for Racial Reconciliation to show documentaries at the library as part of the Created Equal Film Series. The first film is The Loving Story and here is a link to all of the events that will occur as part of this program.
We have also scheduled our first Books & Lunch for the month of February. Claire Spradling from West Point, MS will visit us to discuss her novel, Duress on Thursday, February 6th at Noon.
Whew! And that is just the first two months of this year. We could not be happier to be working with other groups in our community to provide programming for our patrons. We also want to remind everyone that we have an Events Calendar on this blog. We are adding new programs all the time, so be sure to keep an eye on it.
