Something for Everyone!

   Bring a big bag and fill it up with all kinds of great books without emptying your pockets!  Saturday, July 26th at 10 am. is the Friends of Maud Marks Library Book Sale that you have been waiting all month for!  There will be books in every category and for every interest.  They have fiction and non fiction, children's books and adult books.

Bring 'Em & Bling 'Em!

 Summer is upon us and we can't be seen in just any ol' thing!  Bring a plain pair of flip flops to Maud Marks Library Meeting Room Tuesday, July 8th from 2 pm to 4 pm and we will "bling them out"! Of course we need a lovely sun hat to go with them!

It's Murder and Sweets!

Next Wednesday, May 21 at 2 pm the Just Desserts Mystery Book Club will be meeting here at Maud Marks.  We will be discussing The Girl is Murder by Kathryn Haines.  Iris Anderson is only 15 and wants to help her dad with his detective agency. (sound familiar Veronica Mars fans?) This is the first in the series so you don't want to miss out.  Add to the fun by bringing your favorite dessert to eat while we discuss whether the villains got their "just desserts!" 

The Gift Everyone can Use

   Do you know people who are hard or impossible to buy for?  Maybe they have everything! Maybe you don't know them that well.  Maybe you don't know their tastes.  Well, there is one gift that everyone can use. Money.  It is the perfect gift when you don't know what to give.  Wouldn't it be nice to have a special way to give money.

Read A Good Book

Looking for a good book and a good time?  Come to Maud Marks Book Clubs.  We have three different book clubs this month to whet your appetite!  Starting on Monday, April 7 @7PM the Evening Book Club will be discussing On Saudi Arabia  by Karen Elliott House. House is a Pulitzer Prize–winning reporter who has spent the last thirty years writing about Saudi Arabia.

Beautiful Eggs

         I know it's still March, but I'm already thinking about Easter.  I'm all excited about making these beautiful Ukrainian Easter Eggs!  They are very labor intensive but well worth the effort.  Tuesday, April 8th from 2:00 pm till 5:00 pm we will be learning how to make these wonderful eggs!  Notice the extended meeting time.  We will need extra time to finish these eggs.  I will provide whole, raw eggs, and everything else you need.  You are welcome to bring a blown out egg to decorate if you are uncomfortable about keeping a raw egg.  I assure you it is safe and will dry out in the shell and will not stink!  Space is limited so you will have to sign up here

Luck o' the Irish

  Here it is March already and the world is starting to turn green.  Reminds me of the Emerald Isle! Almost. Let's give the green a big boost by making some green shamrock coasters for St.

Who can "resist" watercolor?

    If you are between the ages of 6 and 11 you do not want to miss the afternoon art class next Wednesday, February 26th.
