Happy New Year from the San Juan Ridge Community Library! It has felt very “community” lately in the past month as we celebrated the holidays together for our first Holiday Open House Craft and Cookie Exchange. It was a lovely day, complete with carols sung by our very own Nichole DaLuz , thoughtful crafts by Mary Moore and of course tons of tons of amazing cookies! It was a delicious gathering of young, wise and everyone in between! I even snuck in a great story while everyone munched and glued. Many thanks to Tom Wade, who generously donated a beautiful set of wooden blocks for our kid’s area. If you missed it, don’t worry, I think it will be a tradition from here on out! The patrons at the library were generous and kind during the holidays and we thank everyone who contributed to our welcoming atmosphere.

As we move into the new year and the colder months, we hope to see more BOOK check outs! Reading is a great way to spend those rainy afternoons cuddled with blankets and a cup of something warm. The new year is also a time to clean out those tough spaces you’ve been procrastinating about. Audio books make house work, driving and other tedious projects fly by. We hope that “Reading More” is one of your new year’s resolutions!

We would like to welcome Renee Wade and Bethany Thomas to our board. Renee has been with us for a few months and is our new board secretary and Bethany became officially the VP in December. We also have one more position available if anyone wants to join our amazing board of Directors. It is a volunteer position and meetings are once a month. Inquire at the library or send us a message on Facebook.

We would also like to thank our volunteers Laura Savage and Ruth Heyser. Your incredible dedication is so appreciated! Thank you for keeping our AV department tidy and for wrapping and protecting our collection. You two are the best!
