Scott Harrington to appear Wednesday, November 30

Former Malta resident and author, Scott Harrington will join us on Wednesday, November 30 beginning at 6:30 p.m. (many of you grew up with him here in town) After a short presentation on his new book, "They Called it Naked Fanny," Scott will be signing copies of his book, which will be available for purchase that evening.

Scott's new book tells the story of the U.S. Air Force's part in the early years of the Vietnam War at a small base just west of Nakhon Phanom, Thailand, called Naked Fanny by the men stationed there.

Deck the Halls Community Appreciation Day

The Library Board of Trustees invites everyone to its annual Community Appreciation Day to be held on Saturday, December 3rd from 5 - 7 p.m.

There will be horse drawn carriage rides, holiday crafts for the kids, photo op for the kids, a basket raffle, and gifts for everyone. Of course, there will once again be the hot cholocate bar with all the trimmings, hot apple cider, and cookies galore.

A special recognition of Del Sandberg and the Land & Building Committee will take place at 3:30, prior to the appreciation day celebration.

Of course, this is the night we have set aside for the official grand opening of the completed library renovation project.
