Join us on Tuesday, June 28 at 10:00 a.m. for a fun concert for all ages! Jim Gill performs Music Play to entertain everyone. We’ll be in the school cafeteria so feel free to bring a blanket to sit on if you’d like. We look forward to seeing you there!
The Downton Abbey Tea Party and Flower Pot Fundraiser hosted by the Meeteetse Friends of the Library was a real success! Even the weather cooperated – the cool, rainy day felt just like England! Inside the tables were decorated with linens and teapots and the goodies and hats were worthy of a British High Tea (in our best Wyoming fashion). The fabulous Flower Pots were auctioned by Silent and Live Auction. After all the auction action the Meeteetse Friends raised nearly $800 for library support.
A high point of the Auction was the dedication of one of the pots for the Leo Horsen Fund. Leo is a Meeteetse student who was struck by a shot put earlier in the month at a Track Meet. A Fund has been set up for the Horsen family at Meeteetse Bank of the West and the Meeteetse Friends were happy to be able to assist the family.
Beyond the Books Club is reading Historical Fiction right now. We’ll meet on Thursday, May 12 at 2:00 to talk about our books. Pick any Historical Fiction Book you’d like to read – we’ve got many, many to choose from! And if you still can’t find “the perfect book” we can always borrow books from Cody and Powell (or even from libraries throughout the state or even the world if necessary!) Just show up to join!
The Friends of the Meeteetse Branch Library will have a Downton Abbey themed tea party and flower pot auction on Saturday, May 7, 2016 at 10:00 a.m. at the St. Andrew’s Parish Hall in Meeteetse. In the meantime, there are several other flower pots around Meeteetse available for silent auction bids and there are also two flower pots at the Cody Library. The money will go toward Meeteetse summer reading programming, author talks, books and other additional needs of the library. Everyone is welcome to have a spot of tea and a scone with our Friends and buy the perfect Mother’s Day gift.
Make a Downton Abbey Style Hat, from 4:00 to 6:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 26 at Meeteetse Branch Library, to get ready for the Downton Abbey Tea Party to be held May 7.
Bring a hat or hatband
and we’ll get you started using papers from old books to decorate them in the style of Downton Abbey!
