ON THE LIBRARY
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.
