Dear Friends,
The 17th Annual Live Oaks and Dead Folks Cemetery Tour will be held on November 2 at the City Cemetery. Tickets are still just $10 each and the proceeds go the Nesbitt Memorial Library Foundation. Stop by or call to reserve your tickets through Saturday November 2 at 2:00pm. There are eleven interesting stories presented by local celebrities in this year's tour. I am so grateful for all of our volunteers and for the attendees! Be sure to dress warm and choose footwear that will protect from sticker burrs.
Note the changes for several children's programming dates due to holiday closures. We will be closed on Monday, November 11 in observance of Veteran's Day and Thursday, November 29 through Saturday, November 30 for the Thanksgiving holidays.
