Greetings From The President

Ellen Dewey

I Love Rock ‘n Roll. Yes, I do. In fact, that was the number one love song in 1982 (Joan Jett and The Blackhearts). But we use this word, love, in many different ways…..for people, for things, for country, for activities, etc. And I love how our community has embraced our new library. Just check the statistics and related FOL volunteer opportunities that appear later in this newsletter.

After seven years, I find that I am in danger of spreading myself too thinly, so stepping away as the newsletter editor will allow me to better balance my interests. I love how I’ve been able to use and grow my technology skills over the years. And I love how Joyce O’Neal, a new SFTFOL member, has taken the opportunity to become our new editor. She looks forward to getting acquainted with our members and to receiving written articles for inclusion.

And speaking of love, our program this month will feature local members of Almost,Maine, currently a commonly performed high school play that was canceled at Maiden High School.  The American Library Association was one of several national organizations that urged the Catawba County Board of Education to reverse its decision. Love is the central theme of the play; details below. Hope to see you at our meeting onFeb. 17, 6:30PM.

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