New Year Greetings

On the final day of 2010 I extend wishes for a Happy New Year. Let's hope all our favorite authors publish wonderful books in the coming year to keep the readers entertained and informed.
The library will be closed on New Year's Day but we are back to our normal hours on Monday. The first library program of the new year will be a program on Historic Japanese Gardens by Lee Schneller Sligh on Saturday January 8 at 2:00. Lee will be showing slides of some very old gardens, from her travels through Japan. She is a garden designer/ creator who owns Lee Schneller Fine Gardens in Thomaston. It will be a delightful escape for both gardeners and travellers.
The program is free and open to the public.

Merry Christmas

The Library is decorated and ready for the holidays. The Christmas books are on display waiting to inspire with decorating ideas and yummy recipes to cook for family gatherings and holiday parties. It may be too late to make a Christmas quilt, but there is still time to create home made candles or Christmas cards and tree ornaments to give as gifts. And there are some classic Christmas movies to borrow and watch to get you in the spirit. So come in and see what is available to make your holidays bright.
The library will be closing at 12:00 on Friday December 24. We will reopen on Monday December 27 and be open our normal hours that week. The library will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. We hope you all have a wonder holiday.
As we close out another year we think back to all the events of the past year. We give thanks for all the volunteers who work so hard to raise the funds to keep the library open through the annual Plant and Wreath Sales. And our volunteers who work with children presenting programs that bring Bremen youngsters into the library and gets them excited about books and reading.
And of course we especially appreciate all our members who support us with donations, and the Town of Bremen which gives us funding.

See you next year.
