From The Stacks A column about the Tyrone-Snyder Public Library

Check for updated information about the library, its books,
programs, and special events in this
column appearing bi-weekly on Thursdays in The Daily Herald.

December is upon us and 2008 is racing to an end. Below average temperatures and early snowfall reminds us that winter will be here officially in a few weeks. On the bright side, the weather helps get us in the holiday spirit. It is also time for many annual events – governmental agencies reorganizing, Tyrone Yuletyme Christmas Celebration, and, yes, planning ahead for next year’s big events. The Tyrone-Snyder Public Library participates in all three of these.
On Tuesday, December 2, the Library Board of Directors held its Annual Meeting. At this time, the Board said farewell to two board members: Fred Thomas and Mike McNelis. Thank you both for your dedication to the library and its mission in our community. Your activities on behalf of the library have contributed to the growth of the library’s building and to the services provided by the library to our community. Thank you, Fred and Mike, for a job well done.
On Saturday, December 6, the library will join in the Tyrone Yuletyme Christmas Celebration. We will offer our patrons the chance to save time baking by offering Christmas cookies for sale, an opportunity to shop new or nearly-new items for Christmas gifts at our Christmas Gift Yard Sale, and, at the same time supporting the Library. These sales both take place in the Library’s Community Room beginning at 10 a.m. Charlotte Albright will offer Christmas stories for the young from 1 to 2 p.m.
Tickets are now available for the Library’s 2009 spring concert. The May 2 concert, entitled Save the Last Dance for You, features not one but TWO classic groups: The Marcels and Charlie Thomas and the Drifters. Unlike many other things in today’s economy, prices for the concert tickets remain the same at $30 – a bargain for wonderful night of entertainment. Tickets are available at Kopp Drugs (Tyrone store only), Bressler’s Food Mart, and, of course, at the Library. These tickets will make great stocking stuffers for those music lovers on your list.
Whether you stop in for cookies, Christmas gifts, or a story, we look forward to seeing you at the library soon.
