LIBRARY MUSINGS: Come take part in a Downtown Abbey tea party

It’s February, which can mean only one thing: time to start planning your garden!  Here’s how we can help: we’ve ordered seed catalogs from a number of different seed companies, and we’ve made these available for you to check out. It seems to make more sense than each of us ordering our own catalog, I think.  


In related news, our seed library is still up and running – though we are in need of some donations, so if you’ve got any extra packets of seeds around, please bring them in. 


Computer Workshops 

Looking to improve your computer skills? We’ve got workshops on February 18, 19, and 20 – introductions to computers, photos and digital cameras, and email. Sessions will run from 10:15 am to noon, and the computer lab will be open for practice and questions from 1:00 pm to 3:00 pm. Space is limited – so register today! (In partnership with the Columbia Basin Alliance for Literacy). 


Local History

I’m happy to announce that we now have a local history section, for you to read all about what went on in the Boundary long before I was born. It’s a growing collection, so if you have any books you’d like to donate, we’d very much appreciate it. 


Downton Abbey

Come to our Downton Abbey tea party on Saturday, February 15, from 2:30 to 4:00 pm.  There will be snacks, games, and fancy hats. 


Lego Club

Come one, come all!  We’ll be bringing out our big Lego bins on Friday, February 21, from 1:00 to 3:00 pm – and yes, there will be snacks. 


Board Meeting

If last week’s call for new library board members has sparked your interest, you might consider dropping by our next board meeting, on Wednesday, February 19 at 4:00 pm.
