Garwin Public Library

Hello from the Garwin Library Just a reminder that the Angel Tree is up and ready for you to help someone less fortunate than yourself from our community. While you are here buy some of our homemade cookies or candy to help support our little library, we have some really good cooks. We have 11 new Christmas books to get you in the holiday spirit. Anne Perry, Debbie Macomber, Cheryl Woods, and even a book of Dog’s Letters to Santa. Today as I mopped the floor, which took me nearly two hours because wherever there is a stool or chair I have to stop and read a bit, I came across a copy of Mark Twain’s “The Prince and The Pauper”. Samuel, as I call him, wrote this in 1881, just think no running water or electricity and he may have written this book by candlelight. This edition was published in 1909, one hundred and three years ago. I also came across Robin Hood, copyright 1921. Stan Niedermann read this book 52 years ago and Curtis Bacon read it 42 years ago. Not telling anyone’s age here. Another one I found starts “How Master Cherry, the carpenter, found a piece of wood that laughed and cried like a child”. Bet you can guess what classic that was from. These words are as precious today as they were a hundred years ago. Cherish and read a book as often as you can. Lola Slingluff Library Director
