OCTOBER 7, 2005

Local Author John Bullock will be visiting the library this week to discuss his book, Under a Friendship Moon. Mr. Bullock wrote the book based on his experiences growing up in Allegany County. The book features an absorbing relationship between a man, who is battling alcoholism, and a dog. Many readers will be able to relate to the story because of its local flair. The story takes place during the 1960’s in the neighboring town of Friendship. Mr. Bullock will be very happy to sign books following Thursday’s discussion. Patrons may purchase a copy of the book in Fishers Pharmacy at 138 Main Street. The discussion will take place at 7 pm in the Monday Club Room.

Additionally, the library will be holding a desktop publishing course on Monday, October 17. The course will focus on using basic computer programs to create professional looking documents. During this course, patrons will be able to develop basic skills that will enable them to insert photos and pictures into documents, build letterheads, develop different font types, and include colors that accent a finished product. Patrons must register for this course, which will take place at 7 pm.

Mr. Beau the Clown will be coming to the library on Thursday, October 20 at 7 pm. Mr. Beau is no stranger to the library. In years past, Mr. Beau has entertained both young and old by performing neat tricks and telling great jokes. This program will be a great opportunity for family members of all ages to come into the library and enjoy an evening of laughs. After the show, children get the opportunity to meet Mr. Beau and take home a cute balloon animal. This program is free to everyone.
