Hello Friends of Schoharie Free Library!

We have a lot of exciting events coming up for the month of May, including an exciting event for all you moms out there!  Girls' Night out is this Thursday, May 9th from 7-9pm.  Come in your loungies for a chick flick, chocolate and prizes!

Another exciting event is the launching of our new program: Munchies & a Movie on Tuesday's at 2:00pm.  Come and enjoy your favorite movies of yesteryear and your new favorite movies of today and have some munchies while you are at it.  Snack on our munchies or bring some of yours to share.  Library friend, Linda Lown, is your host!

I've also added a few teasers for the month of June just to whet your appetite!

Also, please note that we are a stop on the Schoharie Promotional Association's  Huckle Buckle Beanstalk Contest beginning May 12th and running through May 25th.  We will be hiding an article in plain sight right here at the library.  Come in and find it and say, "Huckle Buckle Beanstalk", and we will initial your entry form to help you win a prize!

And all who have dropped by to see our rebuilding progress, supported our new programs, and just stopped in to say, "Hi" and "Welcome", I just want to say THANK YOU!

See you at the Library!
