Comes to Dillsburg Library
Thursday May 17th, at 7 P.M.
Photo credit Christophe Meneboeuf
Ms. Ammerman will bring “Bebo Norman,” the farm’s prize juvenile male alpaca. She also will show the new ram “Zeek, son of Zachary,” in front of the library. Father and son are known for having scores of healthy progeny “on the ground”.
Lee Ammerman, an endodontist, and Kathy receive visitors to the farm from churches, camps, and nursing homes. They arrange activities with Girl and Boy Scouts, and Royal Rangers. Some volunteers on the farm are from the physical fitness classes Kathy leads at the West Shore YMCA.
Programs in the library’s 2006-2007 series “TREASURES: Made in the USA” have been underwritten by the Dillsburg Rotary Club. The library is at 17 South Baltimore St. (Route 74) near the light, phone 432-5613.
The library’s 2007-2008 series, starting November 8, is “COMICS: From the Classics to the Graphics”.
There are banners, posters, ceiling tiles, and even a sculptural piece that all reflect the overall theme. Click here to see the main aution page
All proceeds from the auction will support future GO programming.
Betty Druck, our knitter of considerable skill, is ready to take orders; she has a huge portfolio of patterns and colors, and each stocking can be personalized with a name.
Betty adds special embellishments to her stockings--beads for the center of flowers or tree decorations; angora yarn for beards and tiny ribbons on packages. A variety of patterns are available and you may view pictures at the library.
Now, you might be laboring under a mistaken impression; some people think that Libraries find the most obscure and stale movie, blow the dust off of the VHS tape, and cram it into a creaky and cranky player for their patron's "enjoyment."
Not So! Could not be any further from the truth... not only are these new releases on DVD, but they're being shown with a gorgeous projector in a home theatre-like experience. Portable, practical, and given to the library for this express purpose, this new projector will last for many years.
Although the licence for showing movies prevents us from digitally advertising EXACTLY what's being shown, this page has some hints as to what newly released movies are being offered. If you can't figure out the hints, feel free to call the library and ask. (717) 235-4313
10:30 are movies for everyone, 1:00 feature films rated PG-13 and are suitable for teens and adults.
A few kid-safe examples are; Flicka, Shrek 2, and Night at the Museum.
Stranger than Fiction, The Guardian, and Dreamgirls are other examples of movies that might be shown for teens and adults.
We aren't offering popcorn (yet) but you can get free coffee every Saturday.
Both programs are underwritten by the Friends of Southern York County Library to whom we are very grateful.
