The Friends of the Case Memorial Library are celebrating their 25th year.
The Friends reached out to the community gathering together a group of talented women to collaborate on a Yarn Storming outside the library and of the second-floor gallery.
This Yarn Installation is a colorful illustration of the Four Seasons entirely crocheted and knitted.  Sections are filled with a rainbow, a fall tree, different flowers, leaves, and snow.
Throughout the display search for insects, critters, the undersea world, storybook and movie characters. Look on the columns for the 6 large Crayons and outside on the bike rack for the Hungry Caterpillar. Enjoy this magical colorful world.
Everyone who has come through has been dazzled especially the children since it is by the children’s area.
The Friends thank all those who donated and contributed to this endeavor.

Fear Not, Says One Resident, The Library Is Fine

 Around Town, Case Memorial Library, Home, Latest News, Today's Events  Comments Off on Fear Not, Says One Resident, The Library Is Fine
Apr 292017
 

This week I posted a press release from our regular source at the Case Memorial Library stating that the library would be closed on Saturdays due to budget cuts.

This has happened in the past and many residents were upset with the news and expressed their concerns on our Facebook page

One resident, though, said that we got it wrong — no phone call or e-mail explaining why the story was inaccurate, just “you’re wrong.”

After some prying, she said that a new decision has been made and that the Library Commission never approved the release. (She has since deleted her comments from the FB page). The story was up for 3 days yet I haven’t heard any complaints or received a corrected press release from anyone in authority at the library.

I will be away today when the library is open and I won’t be able to call. But I encourage someone to contact me at orangectlive01@gmail.com so I can pass on the correct information. I know many people will be relieved if the library hours aren’t affected.
