Aloha Father - Daughter Dance
We're ready for some tropical sunshine, how 'bout you?!? Join us on Friday, January 23, 2015, 6-8:30 p.m. for the Aloha 2015 Father Daughter Dance at the Opera House.
We invite daughters and their Fathers, Grandfathers, Uncles, or significant mentors, to “travel” with us to the distant shores of the Hawaiian Islands and forget about reality for a while. We will snack on tropical treats, play some fun games and, of course, dance, dance, dance! We will have a photo opportunity providing special memories and each daughter will depart with a beautiful silk floral lei. Please sign up EARLY at the library. Last day for advanced tickets is Wednesday, Jan 22nd. Advanced tickets are $5 per person with the treat of a dinner discount at participating local restaurants offering dads or male mentors and daughters a special meal before the dance. Tickets at the door are $6 per person. Please call the library for more information at 633-3112. Aloha!
"Libraries are the mainstays of democracy. The first thing dictators do when taking over a country is close all the libraries, because libraries are full of ideas and differences of opinion, all the things we say we want in a free and open society. So keep 'em, fund 'em, embrace and cherish 'em". Author David Baldacci (2014)
Share Your Library Story!
As we know there are plenty of stories in the news about the very real challenges that libraries face today.
In an effort to support libraries and help share all the wonderful good work and life changing services and support that libraries are doing, Gale has launched a online blog - Tell Your Story - http://mystory.gale.com/
For each story submitted to the My Library Story community (through February 28, 2015), Gale will donate $1 to an advertising fund used to promote libraries through mainstream media during National Library Week 2015. The donation tracker is updated daily as guest posts are published (not real-time upon submission).
You can contribute! Share your own story and encourage others to share their experiences as well.
