A nine-month-long STEM program at the Quarryville Library wrapped up Saturday, September 14, with a final project and awards.
The Quarryville Library will host a meet-and-greet with a number of authors from 5 to 6 p.m. on Tuesday, May 28.
Among the authors who will have books available for signing and purchase will be Carol A. Park, JP Robinson, Don Helin, J. Arthur Moore, Patricia L. Reese, and Kevin Hewitt. Books will also be available for purchase from local author, Mary Boomsma.
Gardeners will have plenty of choices at the seventh annual Quarryville Library benefit auction.
Owners of 15 local greenhouses will be donating plants to this year's sale, organizer Ron Althoff said last week.
"We expect to have annuals, perennials, and some shrubs and trees," he said.
"We're stressing flowers this year. We always do well with them."
Songs by Diana Ross.
Autobiographies from Dwight D. Eisenhower and George Burns.
Vinyl records and eight-track tapes, perfect for the player mounted under the dash of a vintage Edsel.
There's even a coffee table book about the Kennedy years that carries President John Fitzgerald Kennedy's signature.
These are just some of the items the Friends of the Quarryville Library will be selling at their annual fall sale.
Leslie McRobbie, advisor to Solanco High School's Class of 2013, left, class officer Jillian Eberly, librarian Emily Dawley, and class president Tyler McCardell, attended the presentation of the class's gift to the school.
Most school libraries typically include computers and shelves of
books to help students read and research, but the Solanco High School Library will have a new area this coming school year. The recently graduated Class of 2013 has donated $600 to fund a Library Reading Lounge at the high school. Librarian Emily Dawley said that she sees “a lot of kids who enjoy the library as a peaceful escape from the hustle and bustle of the ordinary school day. It will be nice to have a place for our students to relax, put their feet up, and just soak in their surroundings.”
