THE WHISTLE STOP NEWS - MAY 2015

 

   The Library’s Children’s Area is pleased to host LEGO® HOUR on Tuesday, May 19th, 3-4 pm.

   We then display the creations of the children in one of the Wolfe Community Room hallway display cases.  Currently, children are building the “Heartlake Lighthouse” kit for permanent display.

   The Children’s Area hopes to increase its collection of LEGOS® for use by the children.  If you have a stockpile of LEGOS® not being used at your house, please consider donating them to the Library.  They will be used and enjoyed for years to come.

 

Spring Cleaning and Moving Furniture

   The Staff has made a few changes and improvements in the Library.

   We were able to purchase a new Baby Changing Station thanks to a generous donation from the N. B. American Legion Auxiliary Post #539.  We are having the changing station installed in the Girls’ Room in the Children’s Area.  Just in time for a Happy Mother’s Day!

    Also new in the Children’s Area are the larger spacious bookshelves, donated by Powell Elementary School, which have been added to the Non-fiction section of the room.  Resulting in a New space for our juvenile Graphic Novels collection near the paperback spinner.  Check it out!

    This year, Friends of the Library have donated a new full size refrigerator/freezer and a new Dell laptop, compatible with the Smartboard program, for use in the Wolfe Community Room.  Ask the Children’s desk for details.  Thank you Friends of the Library for also donating after school snacks; “just watch them disappear!”

 

    The Friends of the Library would like to thank the community for its donations and a special thank you to our volunteers for another successful Spring Book Sale!

    The Fall Book Sale will be in October so as you are spring cleaning, consider donating books and other media to the library.  Donations are accepted all year at the Main Desk.  Thank you.

  

The Library will be closed

Monday, May 25th in observation of Memorial Day.

 

May Almanac

May’s name comes from the Latin Maius mensis – meaning Month of Maia.

Maia (meaning "the great one") is the Italic goddess of spring, the daughter of Faunus, and wife of Vulcan.

May has always had 31 days.

 

May’s Birthstoneis the emerald, which is a vivid green gemstone.

May’s Floweris the Lily of the Valley, which symbolizes humility. 

May’s Full Moonis called the Flower Moon.

May's abundant blooms give its full moon the name flower moon in many cultures.

Other names include the Hare moon, the Corn Planting moon, and the Milk moon.

On May 25th we will observe Memorial Day

It is a day established to honor the men and women who lost their lives fighting for their country and their homes.

There are many ways to observe Memorial Day, by visiting cemeteries and placing flags or flowers on the graves of our fallen heroes, by visiting memorials, and by flying the U.S. Flag at half-staff until noon.

May

May is . . . . Better Sleep Month, National Good Car Care Month, National Photo Month, National Salad Month, National Egg Month, National Barbecue Month, Revise Your Work Schedule Month, Date Your Mate Month, National Hamburger Month, and Fungal Infection Awareness Month
