Friends Of The Library Celebrate 20th Anniversary

In 2016, the Friends of the Nashville Public Library celebrate 20 years of service to the community. The organization plans an exciting week of activities to commemorate the milestone and invites the public to attend.

“Make It and Take It” Craft Nights will take place on three evenings during the week of August 15-20. All crafts will be offered at no cost to the participants, but people are asked to sign up in advance so that sufficient materials can be prepared. All ages, from kindergarten through adults, are invited to attend. Parents are encouraged to stay with their child if the child requires assistance. Each craft will be offered from 5:00-7:00 p.m. in the Nashville Public Library. People are invited to arrive at anytime during the evening but no later than 6:00 p.m. (allowing enough time to complete the craft). The crafts are as follows:

Tuesday, August 16, 5:00-7:00 p.m., Pop-up origami.

Wednesday, August 17, 5:00-7:00 p.m., Bead art with fun shapes and some glow-in-the-dark beads.

Thursday, August 18, 5:00-7:00 p.m., Spin art and coloring for adults.

On Saturday, August 20, at 2:00 p.m., the Friends of the Library host a free old-fashioned ice cream social. The afternoon begins with entertainment provided by Harmony Roses Chorus. Harmony Roses, a 20-member a cappella group, is a local chapter of Sweet Adelines International and sings with their signature barbershop style. The group performs locally at hospitals, nursing homes and churches, as well as at community dedications and other events. In addition, the group participates annually in national competitions.

Robert Howard, president of the Friends of the Library, follows the entertainment with a brief presentation of the history of the Friends and their contributions to the library. Following the program, people are invited to enjoy ice cream with all the toppings.

Please come and help the Friends of the Library celebrate this momentous occasion! Please call the library in advance at 327-3827 to sign up for any of the craft nights.
