MARK YOUR CALENDARS September – December 2017
9/9 9:00a.m. – 1:00p.m. FOL Book & Bake Sale; open to the public.
9/15 2:00 p.m. - U.S. Constitution Day Celebration. Once again, we welcome the Honorable Melissa Moore Stens, Flagler County Judge, Seventh Judicial Circuit. At a Constitutional Convention held in Philadelphia, September, 1787, the U.S. Constitution was signed. Ten amendments, known as the Bill of Rights, were ratified in December 1791 and became part of the Constitution. The 4th amendment dealt with Search and Seizure and will be the topic of discussion for this year’s program: “The right of the people to be secure in their persons, houses, papers and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures shall not be violated.” In today’s environment of all things cyber, drones, spyware, etc. this might be a very important discussion. Join us to find out!
9/18 – 9/22 FOL Membership Drive. Culminates with a members only Wine and Cheese Reception on Friday, 9/22 with entertainment by local country singer, Bobby Meeks. Please see featured article for more details.
10/6 2:00p.m. – Medium and author John Rogers will be returning to Flagler County. I just feel it is true! Rogers will provide us with background information of his history as a medium, what it means to be a medium and then, for those that may be interested, provide readings for interested audience members.
10/27 2:30p.m. – Back by popular demand, Tale Tellers of St. Augustine will be presenting a Dark and Stormy Halloween Event including scary tales, songs and ghost stories appropriate for the season. This program is open to all adults, teens and children that are not easily frightened by spooky, creepy, crawly events or stories! Come test your “scarability quotient”! Yes, we made up that word, but how scared do you think you will be? Come, check it out! Trick or Treat!
10/29 11:30 arrival: Friends of the Library Annual Business Meeting and Author’s Luncheon. Event will be held at Grand Haven Country Club. Our author is Bob Lee who has written two books about his experience as a game warden and supervisor with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission. The books are, Backcountry Lawman and Bad Guys, Bullets, and Boat Chases. Invitations will be mailed to Friends members in early October. Books will be available for sale and autographed by the author.
11/11 - Veteran’s Day: To avoid some confusion, although the County offices will be closed on 11/10, to recognize the Veteran’s Day holiday, the Library will be open on 11/10. However, the Library will be closed on 11/11 to honor Veteran's Day. Since the Library and Friends of the Library traditionally honor our Veteran's, with programs such as the White Table Ceremony, we are pursuing appropriate events and dates that can continue that tradition. We will provide details as they become available. For updates, please check Library flyers or the Friends website: www/flaglerlibraryfriend.com.
