Volume 16 Issue 2                      There’s nothing like a good book on a cold day.                           February 2016   

     The Whistle Stop News     

                                         Serving the people of North Baltimore for 97 years                                      est. 1919

The 2016 annual meeting of the Friends of the North Baltimore Public Library, Inc. was held on January 11, 2016 in the Wolfe Community Room,with President Tonya Emahiser calling the meeting to order.  Nine members were present. Pam Van Mooy, Secretary/Treasurer read the minutes and reported $3465 in the checking account.

The group elected Tonya Emahiser, President and Jaiyme Bushey, Vice President, for another one year term and also re-elected Cheryl Heilman to another two year term as a Board of Trustees member.

Membershipsare accepted any time during the year at the main desk in the library. The group decided that the Book Sales will be held April 6-9 and October 5-8. Book donations from the community will be accepted at any time.

The group discussed and voted to donate $1734 worth of purchases to the library during the rest of the year. They will purchase After School Snacks, a Lego Center, a public Charging Station, the Movie License, a yearbook and ad from NBHS, and give a donation for the summer and winter reading promotions. The Friends will also provide a holiday luncheon for the library staff.

 

The Library will be open regular hours on President’s Day,

February 15th.

 

Without libraries what have we?

We have no past and no future.

–Ray Bradbury

 

It’s TAX TIME

  Tax Forms are available near the Main Desk.  We have copies of the most common forms.

  If you need other forms, many are found on the IRS’s website at www.irs.gov.

Groundhog Day!

   Many braved the chilly morning air in Punxsutawney, PA to watch as Phil was awakened from his sleep and proclaimed:  “There is no shadow to be cast!  An early spring is my forecast!”

   In Marion, Oh, Buckeye Chuck was awakened and he proclaimed we're in for 6 more weeks of winter!

   So we have conflicting forecasts from two preeminent groundhog weather predictors.  Will it be an early end to winter, or will it drag on for six more long, weary weeks?

   Groundhog Day is based on the Scottish couplet: "If Candlemas Day is bright and clear, there'll be two winters in the year."

"A great library is one nobody notices because it is always there, and always has what people need."

–Vicki Myron

 

Winter Be Prepared!

Keep additional gloves, hats, scarfs and blankets in your car in case of becoming stranded.

  Store a shovel should you need to dig out of excess snow.  Also keep in mind either kitty litter, rock salt, or sand will come in handy as extra traction on the ice.

Did you know…?

Winter Edition

Frostbite can occur in 15 minutes or less.

The less exposed skin, the warmer you’ll feel.

Use of hats and gloves can help prevent frostbite and loss of body heat. 

Dressing in layers can help you to adjust to both outside and inside temperatures. 

Nine out of ten people say they like chocolate.  The tenth person might be lying.

 

 

Historical Society Scans & Historical Photos are available for viewing from a Passport device.  Passport devices are located at the main desk.

 

THANK YOU BRIAR HILL HEALTH CAMPUS!

For continuing to donate snacks this summer.  Children will READily eat them up!

 

Dedicating a Memorial book or other item in memory of a loved one is a great way to honor their memory.  A memorial is a great way to remember a beloved pet also.

Ask at the Main desk for details about how to arrange a memorial.
