Volunteers, farm animals fill up the VZC Library

Cows, horses, pigs and chickens are some of the first animals that come to mind when you think of the farm. But when Miss Rhonda reads about the farm at preschool Storytime, there's no telling what might come up!

Come to the the Van Zandt County Library at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 21, 2016, and you will find out. Who knows, Old MacDonald may even make an appearance!

The October meeting of the Friends of the Library was really interesting. Members and guests learned about an event that happened near the end of the Texas War for Independence called the Runaway Scrape. Mayor Lou Ann Everett brought it to life with her narration.

The next big event for the group will be the Book Fair, Nov. 4 and 5. If you would like to donate books, please bring them in by Nov. 1. And there's always plenty to do, if you want to help; please leave your name and contact info with the librarians at the circulation desk.

This week's Volunteer Profile is about Pat Howerton who has worked in the library for five years. She describes herself as a “compulsive organizer, who kind of fell into the job.”
