  This month finds our book discussion group reading The Book Thief by Mark Zusak.  We'll be showing the movie of the same name on Thursday May 29, downstairs in the Klock room beginning at 1:30 p.m.  A discussion of the book & film will take place the following week, at 3:30 p.m. on Wednesday, June 4.  Copies of the book are available now at the library...later in May the June selection, The Killer Angels by Jeff Shaara will be available for those who want to start reading...that discussion will take place in late June along with a companion film based on the novel, which depicts the Battle of Gettysburg.  Plans are also underway for this year's summer reading program, with several special events for young people already lined up.  Meanwhile, story times continue on Tuesday mornings at 10:30 a.m.  And don't forget to stop by the library May 17 in the morning as the friends will have lots of plants and books for you to purchase and enjoy all summer long!

Hart Lines      By the Friends of Gilbert Hart Library

Coming in May will be a change in time for whist parties. They will be on May 9th and 23rd at 7:00 p.m. Carol Pratt is still in charge, 446-2843.               

Friend’s monthly meeting has also been changed to 1:00 p.m. on the 2nd Wednesday.  

On May 17th, Saturday morning from 9-12 we will have our annual plant sale. We will have plants left over from the Tinmouth Plant Sale, as well as many items our local folks provide. There will be veggies, herbs, shrub cuttings, as well as indoor plants. We will have some samples for you to taste of items made with herbs: cookies or breads, for example. Also we’ll offer selected garden and/or cookbooks for you to buy.  

On June 21st, there is talk of a town-wide yard sale between the hours of 9 to 12 a.m. and we will have many books to sell at very reasonable prices. This is all we intend to sell at this time, although we are willing to rent space on our surrounding lawns for $10 per table. Churches are offering items for sale and probably individuals will have things to offer as well.

So there is much to keep you busy: find or raise some plants for the Plant Sale on May 17th, and cleaning out your houses to find items for selling in yard sales, especially the one on June 21st.

And savor your summer- they are all too short!
