Dodos Make a Comeback in Seabrook!

The rumor that the dodo bird is extinct has been greatly exaggerated.  Take, for instance, the eight orange dodos occupying the children’s area at Evelyn Meador Library.  Never have we seen such a group of popular dodos.  Patrons of all ages like them.  Children play on them. Middle school students ride them like horses.  Adults use them as seating for browsing.  They come in really handy for those who have trouble reaching the bottom shelves. 

 Yippie ki-yay,  we love our dodos.  Long live the dodo bird at Evelyn Meador Library!

Seabrook 50 Year Anniversary Celebration!

New Artist Exhibit at Evelyn Meador

We have a new Artist exhibiting in our Meeting Room for the month of September. Eric Klusendorf is a local artist who likes to work in a variety of formats, and always welcomes a new challenge. You may have seen his work around town. He has painted murals in schools as well as  portraits of many of our local businesses and homes in the area. Eric also likes wood carving and you can see some of his work in lawns in the area. He has carved some of our tree stumps left over from Ike into amazingly beautiful works of art. It may be a mermaid, or a sea turtle; you just never know where his imagination will take him. Come view an exhibit of his work in our library, and you may find yourself wanting a portrait of your home or business or a carving of your own before you leave!
