Happy New Year from the Library [UPDATED]Published 9:55am Thursday, January 10, 2013 Updated 12:05pm Thursday, January 10, 2013
It’s a new year and, fittingly enough, we have a lot of “new” at the Fergus Falls Public Library, too. You may have read about our new circulation library assistant, Deb Zachmann, and Emily Millard’s new role as assistant librarian.
Deb has served as a member of the Library Board, Friends of the Library Board and as an avid library volunteer in many capacities.
We are happy to add Deb to our team as a staff member and the new “face” of the library.
As assistant librarian, you will find Emily leading programs with our Youth Librarian, Arielle, and Adult Services Librarian, Katelyn, and will also find her at the Information Desk, ready to answer your research and technology-related questions.
We are excited to have Emily in her new role at the library.
In addition, we are gearing up for a full slate of fall and winter library programs for all ages. During the next couple of weeks in this column, we will reveal our program lineup for youth, teens and adults.
You can also get a sneak peak on our website at www.fergusfalls.lib.mn.us or by picking up a program brochure at the library.
And, as if that weren’t enough new, the Friends of the Library are hosting a new fundraiser at the library this week.
Calling all art hounds and bargain hunters, visit the Friends of the Library Fine Art Silent Auction in the library’s Jean Dahling meeting room through Monday.
Bid early and often as all proceeds will benefit the library.
Included in the auction are 16 pieces of artwork, including prints of works by Claude Monet, Vincent Van Gogh, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Johannes Vermeer and more. Check out the Fine Art Auction photo album on the library’s Facebook page: www.facebook.com/fergusfallspubliclibrary to view the pieces or stop by.
Pieces include items donated to the library as well as items discarded from the library’s circulating collection of artwork.
Find a new piece for your wall.
The Fine Art Silent Auction is just one of the fundraisers the Friends of the Library host for the library.
The mission of the Friends is to provide support and encouragement for the library.
Interested in joining the Friends? You can do so at any time for as little as $10. Check out the Friends of the Library page on our website for more information www.fergusfalls. lib.mn.us/friends.php
Stop by and we’ll show you what’s new at the library!
