Delphi Public

“Beyond What You See,” a body of work by Camden artist Brad Shay, is on display in the Gerber Globe Valve Room from now through March 31. Shay, who is visually impaired, creates intricate pen and ink drawings that start with a single line or point and then builds around the perimeter of the page.

Michael Flowers, the Colfax cowboy, will saunter into town on March 10 to serenade local music lovers with his repertoire of songs. Mike played for a number of years with The Hot Club of Colfax and his solo act includes folk and traditional country music such as “Red River Valley” and “The Traveling Minstrel of the Range.” Music and coffee are free and start at 7 p.m. Desserts are available for a nominal fee.

The library will serve as a collection site for African Library Project book donations. Please consider recycling your gently used books to help start a library in Africa. The following books are requested: baby board and paperback copies of easy readers, children’s, juvenile literature/chapter books, K-8 textbooks (English, math, geography, and science), encyclopedias & atlases (post 1990) and paperback dictionaries. The project is being carried out by the Deer Creek Delphinium 4-H Club. Former Delphi native Chris Bradshaw is the president and founder of African Library Project.

Discover the newest networking craze by attending the workshop, “Pinterest - what’s the big deal?” on March 15 at 7 p.m. Learn how to set up your account on Pinterest; find your friends, and start pinning! This is an informational class, but you can bring your own laptop to get started right away.

Every year, for one week only, the library offers patrons a way to take care of their accounts. During Return the Borrowed Books Week, March 1-7, patrons of the Flora Library will have the opportunity to return any borrowed books (that haven’t gone to collection) and have the fines forgiven. Free-will donations of non-perishable goods in exchange for the forgiveness of fines are welcome and will be donated to the Carroll County Food Pantry.

The March selection for the Flora Book Club is David Baldacci’s entertaining thriller, “The Winner.” When the enigmatic Mr. Jackson approaches LuAnn Tyler, a young mother of one, and guarantees her the $100 million national lottery prize, all of her prayers, or possibly all of her fears, become reality. Extra copies of the book are available for check- out at the main desk.

The theme for the next storytime will be “Chicks.” There will be stories about barnyard animals and their babies (especially the little fluffy ones!) Storytime is Tuesday at 10 a.m.
