Library’s holiday craft bazaar proves to be popular event
Vendors, shoppers and kids all enjoyed the Lindale Library’s Holiday Craft Bazaar held last weekend at First United Methodist Church.
The 6th graders from E. J. Moss Intermediate School sold some really tasty soup to help raise funds for their spring trip, and we want to wish them good luck.
Through items sold by library volunteers and booth rental to vendors, the library raised more than $2,000 for operating expenses.
Mary Hurst of Lindale was the very happy winner of the Pastel Sampler quilt drawing last week.
Raffle ticket sales raised around $250, and we appreciate everyone who bought one. You’ll have another chance to win a quilt, as Nancy Gipson has donated one for our next raffle.
Nancy’s quilt is Vanilla Jamaica, which combines pieced blocks and appliqué, and recently won first place in Mineola’s Quilt Show.
Made by Nancy, it was machined quilted by Cheryl Pontious of Tyler. Tickets are $1 each, or 6 for $5, and we’ll draw for this lucky quilt winner in January.
Children at our regular Friday StoryTime at 10:30 a.m. have been entertained by Melissa Melendez, with her husband, Mike, on guitar.
They play and sing simple songs with the little ones, who have fun time singing along. We want to thank Melissa and Mike for sharing their talent.
Don’t forget to check out all the Christmas gift baskets made by the Friends of the Library from recycled ribbon and decorations.
We will be closed for Thanksgiving from Thursday, Nov. 22 through Monday, Nov. 26, but the book drop will be open and checked during that time. All of us at the Lindale Library are thankful to have support from such a great community and such great patrons.
