Our public turkey dinner on April 7 was a great success. It was so nice to see our library friends and supporters come out and enjoy great company and a great meal. May 5th will be our famous public rotisserie dinner. Roast with mashed potatoes, peas, carrots, cucumber salad, Janet rolls as well as homemade cakes and pies will be on the menu. As always, dinners start at 5 p.m. and are held at the Hillgrove Community Center in Whitneyville. If you haven’t been, you’ll need to mark the date on your calendar and join us. The construction of the library started with the placement of the foundations and now begins the framing of the library. With the funding obtained to build the library, the Friends of the Library are now working to fund new libraries and new furniture for the library and craft store. With more space for the library and craft store, the library will be able to host events throughout the year and the craft store will be able to accommodate more new artisans. This week, Patricia Brightly is visiting Rose M. Gaffney and Jonesboro Elementary School with books and will read aloud in five classes. Kids look forward to Whitneyville Library Day and love stories that are read aloud. This service began in 1972 and continues today. The library is open Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. We have two computers for public internet use and Wi-Fi for those with laptops. We offer interlibrary loan free of charge and there has never been a charge for a library card. All readers from surrounding towns are invited to join the library. You can visit the library at: and don’t forget to like us on Facebook.
