Dear Felton Library Friends —

As we begin a new year, Felton Library Friends looks forward to systemwide library planning that will include better service and hours to the San Lorenzo Valley. We will keep you informed about meetings in February concerning the Library board’s discussions of where to point the library system for the next five years.

2011 events at the Felton Branch include ongoing book groups (newcomers always welcome) and a Read-a-thon in February.

Reading in the Redwoods Book Group meets monthly to discuss a given book. It meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month at 6:15 p.m. (it reschedules for holidays). Use the side entrance on Felton-Empire as the branch is closed on Wednesday. A copy of the book can be picked up at the Felton branch. For more information, call Eunice at 420-1345.

Book Sharing at Tea Time meets monthly over tea to discuss favorite books from the genre of the month, and to get reading recommendations from others. It meets at 3:00 p.m. on the 4th Tuesday of the month. Coming genres: January — poetry; February — biographies; March — recent fiction. Full list of book topics. For more information, call Felton Library Friends at 335-1135.

Felton Library Read-a-thon will take place at the Felton Library on February 10th from 2 to 6. Readers from the community will read aloud passages from some of their favorite books throughout the afternoon. A complete schedule of readers and their selections will be posted on the website later in the January.
