Congratulations to Sylvia Erickson! She is the winner of the “Blind Date With a Book”, dinner for two, to the Lincoln Manor Steak House. According to the “Rate Your Date” slips, most of the “dates” with the books were enjoyed by the participants. We heard feedback from quite a few people that they were exposed to types of books/authors that they would otherwise not have read (if they had not participated). Thanks to everyone that participated! — at Central City Public Library
There’s still time to get your “Blind Date With a Book~ Rate Your Date” registration slips in. Please them turn in by March 1, to be entered into the drawing for the dinner for two to the Lincoln Manor Steak House. 🙂 — at Central City Public Library.
Tired of your same old relationships? Need something new and exciting? During the entire month of February stop by the library for a mysterious rendezvous. We’d like to fix you up with a blind date (with a book of course); after all we are a library! We’ll select a variety of books, wrap them up in plain brown paper (no peeking) and you won’t know the “identity” of your blind date until you get it home. Will it be fiction or non-fiction, a mystery, biography, or a cookbook? Funny, heart-breaking or informative? Sure, you may be disappointed; then again… you may end up really enjoying something you may not otherwise have chosen for yourself.
Each book will have a “Rate Your Date” slip. If you are so inclined, say whatever you want about your date (even if your date was a dud- don’t worry, its feelings won’t be hurt). With each slip you return, you can enter a drawing to win dinner for two at the Lincoln Manor Steak House in Central City. So, be sure to stop by the library anytime between February 1 and 28. Who knows, you might get lucky; if not in love then perhaps in literature?
Get your woodcarving knives out and get ready to do some carving & chatting! “Woodcarvers Get-Togethers” will be held at the library on the 2nd Tuesdays of each month at 7:00 pm (beginning February 12). — at Central City Public Library.
It’s that time of year again- the seed catalogs have arrived! Luddene Perry’s “Gardening Throughout The Year” classes will begin on Thursday, January 17 at 7:00 p.m. at the library. The first class will be about the ins and outs of adding fruit trees to your garden. It will cover: appropriate varieties, the right root stock, site preparation, proper planting techniques and pest control. Everyone is welcome- no class fees. — at Central City Public Library.
We are closing at 5:00 this evening (for New Year’s Eve) and we will be closed all day tomorrow (for New Year’s Day). Happy New Year to everyone!– from the library staff 🙂
“Peppermint Sugar Cookie Bars” is one of the Pinterest recipes being made by one of the participants in the upcoming library cookie swap (being held on Wednesday, Dec. 19th at 6:00 p.m.). If you would like to attend, bring 6 dozen cookies to the library for the swap, mingle and enjoy some of the cookies. Then, take home a variety of the 5 dozen delicious cookies, to enjoy during the holiday season! If you want to participate, but can’t attend the swap, you may drop your cookies off in advance, and pick up your variety of cookies afterwards.
Our “Season’s Reading’s” display features holiday entertaining, recipe and decorating ideas. There are also holiday-themed mystery, romance and western novels. Reward yourself with a good book, while you sit by the fireplace, with a nice cup of warm hot chocolate! 🙂
Currently, the library has the Christmas of Sharing doll quilts on display. These beautiful quilts were made by the Central City Lone Tree Quilt Guild members. The quilts are definitely works of art! 🙂
