We love anime and now it is easier to find!

We have a fantastic anime collection due to the efforts of Colette and her friends.

Thanks to staff for making a shift so that all the anime DVDs are together. This is for the ease of EVERYONE and is most helpful!

Have you noticed the rotating quilt display?

Patron Mary Pat Van Schyndel creates beautiful quilts. She displays them on the interior wall when you first enter the building. Just look to your right!

Mary Pat takes care to match the season. Here is her current work displayed. Just lovely and inspiring!

Congratulations FMPL holiday raffle winners!

Each December FMPL runs a FREE raffle whereby patrons get a raffle ticket each time they check out. They put the ticket into an envelope next to a book that they are trying to win.

The selection of books from FMPL is always diverse and beautiful. Drawing the names is fun because we see the variety in our patrons, too!

Loving the panorama of the arts!

An opportunity fell into our laps whereby artist Shanti Bennett requested that we exhibit her art at the library. We said "sure".

We will be enjoying it in the foyer until the end of February, 2020. Her pieces are for sale if you are interested.

Her website can be accessed HERE.

Saturday, February 8, 2020 - 9:00am to 10:00am
Author: Victor Hugo
Summary
"So long as ignorance and poverty exist on earth, books of the nature of Les Misérables cannot fail to be of use," says Victor Hugo in the preface of his famous novel. Certainly, Les Mise;rables is French history recounted through the personal stories of its main characters. The tale offers philosophical insight on the good deeds that can happen even amidst ignorance and poverty. This handsome leather-bound volume is a beautiful addition to any classic literature library with specially designed endpapers, gilded edges, and a ribbon bookmark so you will never lose your place. "-- Provided by publisher.
"Victor Hugo's classic 1862 novel about the struggles and triumphs of the French people, in particular the ex-convict Jean Valjean and his nemesis, Inspector Javert"-- Provided by publisher.
