Library (Karen Tangen, FFB Library Director)
The days are getting colder and more fall like and although it’s beautiful outside, we all tend to spend more time inside during the winter. It’s a perfect time to come into the Library to check out the book, audiobook or movie that will help pass the time.
Some of our new books are:
Fairytale – Danielle Steel Tell Tale – Jeffrey Archer
Deep Freeze – John Sandford Column of Fire – Ken Follett
Killing Season – Faye Kellerman Enigma – Catherine Coulter
Lilac Lane – Sherryl Woods Romanov Ransom – Clive Cussler
How the Finch Stole Christmas – Donna Andrews Casualty of War – Charles Todd
Mind Game – Iris Johansen Cuban Affair – Nelson DeMille
Quick and Dirty – Stuart Woods Don’t Let Go – Harlan Coben
Rooster Bar – John Grisham Echo of Murder – Anne Perry
Strange Weather – Joe Hill Holly and Ivy – Fern Michaels
Sleeping Beauties – Stephen King Snow Country Christmas – Linda Lael Miller
We also have a lot of new movies, and are offering the new PBS Series, Vietnam for check out.
December Fundraising – One Gift at a Time
One of the constants at the Library is fundraising, as the membership dues do not cover operating costs. We strive to make our fundraisers fun but this time we are adding USEFUL to the mix.
How, might you say?
We have a deal for you…gift-wrapping!!
No, we won’t shove a catalog under your nose, twist your arm and make you buy rolls of wrapping paper but we will wrap your Christmas gifts for you.
So, now how will this work? Bring your gifts to the library and we will wrap them for you. The only other thing required of you is a monetary donation.
Hopefully there are sighs of relief heard all over because this is a job some folks hate. They love the selecting and shopping of gifts for family and friends but hate the wrapping part.
This will be our December fundraiser and we are telling you now for two reasons. One, you need to know now that there will be gift wrapping elves at the Library to help out and second, if you have rolls of gift wrap, ribbon etc, tucked in the back of the closet you don’t know what to do with, well, we do. Bring it to the library and we will use it.
The Fairfield Bay Library is proud to have 40 ACTIVE volunteers that help us with a little bit of everything: working the front desk, helping in the back office, processing of new books, processing of new movies, assistance with book over dues and collections, assistance with monthly newsletter, tracking of membership, and so much more. Suffice it to say that our Library could not function without these AMAZING people!! If you are interested in spending time in a fun, completely non-stressful environment where you get to meet TONS of nice people all while helping out our awesome little non-profit Library….give Karen a call at (501)884-4930!!
About the FFB Library:
The Fairfield Bay library is an independent non-profit Library that serves the Fairfield Bay community, the surrounding areas, and the vacation and timeshare visitors. We are the only library in Arkansas with such a large number of volunteers. The volunteers work daily with the director and volunteer staff. The volunteers are a big part of what makes this such a great library. Since this library is not a part of the regional library system, the library relies on donations and fundraisers to operate. We also have different levels of memberships for adults 18 and over. There are no membership dues for children. There are temporary memberships for visitors, and timeshare visitors.
If you aren’t already, please consider becoming a member – we would truly appreciate your support!! If you’re a Time Share visitor, your membership to the Library is FREE for the length of your visit. If you’re a Resident, our Basic Membership is just $15.00 a year and includes unlimited books, movies, audio books and games to check out. We also have fax services, free Wi-Fi and public computers for anyone to use.
Library Hours: Mon, Tues, & Thurs, 1 – 4 pm, Wed & Fri, 9am – 4pm, Sat – 10am to 12:30pm.
