CHECK IT OUT: Friends prepare for book sale; Pelican Pickers to perform

Published: Wednesday, March 12, 2014 at 01:00 AM.

If you’re in the mood for spring cleaning, why not start by donating books and movies to the library? If we can’t use them in our collection, we’ll donate them to the Friends of the Library, who will sell them at their upcoming book sale.

First pick is available for Friends members (or a $2 entry fee for non-members) 5-8 p.m. April 4. Or shop free from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. April 5 and 6. This is a great opportunity to build your personal library, especially for children! 


On March 29, The Pelican Pickers play Appalachian, old-time and gospel music with Appalachian mountain lap dulcimers. They augment their sound with banjo, mandolin, guitar, Irish penny whistles, fiddle, harmonica, Native American flute, recorder and silver flute. The songs, most of which come from the 1800s or earlier and from the early 1900s, start at 10 a.m. and will end around 11:30 a.m. Registration is not required.

 We’d like to thank Cub Scout Pack 799, Webelo Den 11 and Wolf Den 4 and our Friends for providing refreshments!

Please call 682-4432 for more details on library services.


On Early Release Thursdays, when you have a bit more time between school and after-school activities, come to the Crestview Public Library! Sasha Lipscomb prepares fun stories and activities for kindergartners and older children. Sign-in is 1:45-2 p.m. Please drop your child off and enjoy the library until pick-up time at 2:45 p.m.

Heather Nitzel is the Crestview Public Library's youth services librarian.
