Library Talk – December 13, 2016


From the desk of Alison Gibson, Director

Ripley Village Christmas continues to showcase some of the best that Ripley has to offer, and we are proud to be a part of the tradition. Many people work behind the scenes to help pull things together, and we want to highlight just a few names….

Once again, the Village of Ripley ably helped set the beautiful tree that Red Malone cut down and delivered. The tree was donated from Thomas Auto Salvage in Georgetown—I think it is one of the prettiest trees we have ever had. Thank you to all.

Thanks to Fred Dengler for arranging the events for the tree lighting—next year he is going to have to work on controlling the temperature—we missed having the 3rd and 4th grade kids singing, but it was mighty cold, and we understand why they backed out. Thanks to those that came for the rest of the program, the hot chocolate served across the street was much appreciated.

Thanks to everyone that was involved with the book sale—The Friends of the Library came out in force to sort many books, then took turns manning the table—the sale raised enough money to purchase more chairs and tables for the (not yet open, but soon) annex. Friday night sales enjoyed the live Christmas-themed music provided by the Banks of the Ohio. Thanks to everyone that came and gave generously for their selections of books—I hope you found treasures you will enjoy.

This Thursday, the 15th, we are pleased to have Dan Pinger at the library at 7:00 p.m. to showcase his book of poetry. His good friend and author Ann Hagedorn will be here as well, to introduce Dan as well as read a selection from his book. A limited number of books will be available for purchase.
