Greetings From The President

Ellen Dewey

Everyone raking fall leaves or pruning shrubs is painfully aware of the constant effort needed to keep order amid the chaos. But we all know autumn is nature’s way of preparing for the fresh burst of spring.

The Grand Opening of our grand Sherrills Ford-Terrell Library required a flurry of long-term effort to control the chaos. I am so proud of our forward thinking county government, and of all the Friends that had a part in this monumental project, from its inception through the

opening. A flurry of short-term effort resulted in a wonderful ribbon-cutting event that drew an overflow crowd of all ages. Our county, branch, and other branch staff recruited for the opening and for its preparation were incredible. The autumn of our little library has given way to the rise of our new symbol of community literacy.


We meet on the 3rd Tuesday of each month at 6:30 pm at the Sherrills Ford Branch Library.  Please join us.
