Library Corner

With help from so many people, the library will have heat this winter! Saturday’s Fund the Furnace tea and auction, brain-child of Lin Henry, proprietress of Tickle Your Fancy, was a rousing success. From cucumber sandwiches, key lime mousse and Earl Grey tea, to the final shout of “sold your way,” this event raised sufficient funds to cover the cost of the furnace. Many thanks to Lin Henry and her group of faithful and talented helpers, Jean Pepple and all who participated in the tea, auction and booster fundraiser.

Pennsylvania Department of Health will be at the library Wednesday, October 17, from 2:30 p.m. to 4 p.m. Join Teresa Leese this month to learn about immunizations and to get current information about the upcoming flu season.

It’s time for the Free Movie Friday, October 12, at 6:30 p.m. You may not recognize many of the people in this (they're too young) but you will know the ships, weapons, and one large, hairy furball. This movie franchise keeps growing as the generations who have enjoyed it grow in number. Go to https://www.starwars.com/films/solo.

The Fulton County Arts Council is a local group of more than 75 artists who work in various media. The art exhibit has works by these local artists including local high school students.
