Staying warm at the Evelyn Meador Library!

With the temperatures dropping and the holiday season in full gear, why not stop by the Evelyn Meador Library to warm up and enjoy a good book? On the 5th the teens were warmed by a treat of hot cocoa or coffee (decaf). It was the perfect way to enjoy our first big cold front!

New Landscape Art for Evelyn Meador

The Friends of the Evelyn Meador Library recently purchased these fantastic crane sculptures to add to our outdoor landscaping. We think they add a real touch of class to our already beautiful facility!

This one is in the rain garden behind the library. One person who first saw this on their cell phone thought the birds were real!

Friends of Evelyn Meador Holiday Book Sale

Books - Movies - Music!

sale

If you are an avid reader, books are always a welcome gift. And never more so than during the Holiday Season. Even with the surge in sales of Nooks and Kindle devices, many of us still love the feel and smell and tactile experience of a good book.

Having said that, I am happy to announce that after nearly a three year hiatus, the Friends of the Evelyn Meador Branch Library will once again  hold their annual Holiday Book Sale in the library. This year's sale will take place on Saturday, December 3rd from 10:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. in the Meeting Room across from the Book Store.  As always, all proceeds go to the benefit of the library.

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!
