Many of us had visitors over the Easter holiday, but my first one came a few days earlier but required very little work on my part.                       

Being near the middle of April, I had put out an empty hummingbird feeder – so it wouldn’t freeze and break - just as an indicator of the hummingbirds’ return. It paid off when the earliest hummer I’ve ever had showed up on the morning of April 13. I quickly stirred up some sugar water and filled the feeder before my visitor decided to go elsewhere for refueling. When the second one makes an appearance, I’ll hang more feeders.

Don’t you just love spring in the Ozarks?

We are so very proud to announce that Texas County Library has a new Library Director. Welcome to our library family, Louise Beasley. Together, we will make a great team.

New DVDs to our branch this week include: The Pilot: Based on a True Story, Coming 2 America and Redeeming Love. New audiobooks are The Midnight Library, Matt Haig and Blind Tiger, Sandra Brown.

New books include: One Step Too Far, Lisa Gardner; The Liar, Nora Roberts; Blackberry Beach, Irene Hannon; One Italian Summer, Rebecca Serle; and several Christian fiction books, including the Secrets of Willow Springs series by Tracy Fredrychowski.

Our Summersville Friends of the Library group is planning a Plant/Book Sale for Friday, April 22, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the library.

Proceeds from this sale help to fund library activities and needs. Contact Kathie at 417-932-1281 for more information.

As Memorial Day draws near, Memorial books are a thoughtful way to honor our friends or loved ones who are no longer with us. If interested in doing this for a special person, inquire at any of our branch libraries. It’s truly a gift that keeps on giving to others.

Parties interested in taking a tour of our historic Summersville mill may contact the Summersville Library during business hours to schedule a time but be advised there is no heat in the mill. Please stop by the library or call 417-932-5261 during business hours.   

The Summersville Friends of the Library meet on the second Monday of the month at 5 p.m. inside Summersville Library. The next meeting is scheduled for Monday, May 9, at 5 p.m.

There’s never a charge for library activities, thanks to the Friends and Texas County Library, but you can show your appreciation by attending the Friends’ monthly meetings and being a part of this service to our community.

New members are invited to join this active group in supporting and participating in the continuing growth of the Summersville Branch Library. The Friends’ Facebook page can be found by entering “Summersville Friends of the Library.”
