A wonderful time was had by all at our holiday open house this afternoon. We had a great turnout, with about 50 community members attending. Many thanks to all who came! Great camaraderie was in the air :)
Thanks to Addison Lee, who wowed everyone with her angelic voice as she performed a solo of "God Bless Us Everyone", a song from the musical that Moon Lake's students performed earlier in the week. Thanks to Mickey Luck and Brenda Johnson for their beautiful acoustic music. The door prizes were a hit...thanks to all who who donated prizes, including Mentone Market, The Graceful Giraffe, and MERF. New friendships were formed, and valuable connections were made. Moon Lake Library truly appreciates our community! 💝
Come by the library on Saturday morning at 10, when Sharon Habin will teach us how to play this fun and strategic game. Or, play chess with some of our regular Saturday morning game lovers... We also have backgammon, cribbage, mancala, and rummikub games to play. We'll be open Thursday from 3-5 and Saturday from 9-12.
We have lots of holiday DVDs to borrow... All you need is a library card!
The Board of Directors of Moon Lake Community Library will host a community-wide Holiday Open House on Sunday, December 17, from 3–5 p.m. at the library. As a way to express gratitude to our local non-profit and volunteer organizations, the library has invited their representatives to attend, so you’ll have the opportunity to personally thank them for the work they do, learn about the services they provide, and ask any questions you may have.
Enjoy holiday refreshments provided by the library’s team of volunteers, as well as live music performed by students of Moon Lake School and area residents. Door prizes (for children and adults) will be given to those in attendance. The Christmas village, which Mentone resident Mickey Luck constructed for the library many years ago, will be on display. Children, especially, will be enchanted by the scene, which features the Yuletide train as it passes through the village. (Due to lack of storage space, the library is considering selling the train set. If you’re interested, please call Dianne Kuehl at 256-634-4538.)
Bring your holiday cheer and community spirit, and enjoy time socializing with your neighbors at Moon Lake Community Library.
Christmas Time Is Here 🎶………..
Hello everyone, hope you are enjoying this holiday season thus far. The weather has that bracing feel, colorful lights are everywhere and holiday goodies are tempting me at every turn…ah, how wonderful. This is also that time of year when curling up with a cup of hot cocoa and a good book or DVD makes the season complete. Here at your Community Library we have just what you need, and they are Santa-approved!
The Midnight Line
Lee Child’s latest Jack Reacher novel is a powerhouse of a thriller. Reacher takes a stroll through a small Wisconsin town and sees a class ring in a pawn shop: West Point 2005. A tough year to graduate: Iraq, then Afghanistan. The ring is for a woman with her initials engraved inside. Reacher decides to find the woman and return her ring, and discover why she gave up the ring. The deeper he digs, and the more he learns, the more dangerous the terrain becomes. Turns out the ring was just a small link in a far darker chain.
The Rooster Bar
John Grisham’s newest legal thriller takes you inside a law firm that’s on shaky ground. Mark, Todd, and Zola came to law school to change the world, to make it a better place. But now, as third-year students, these close friends realize they have been duped. Maybe there’s a way out—but they would first have to quit law school. Crazy, right? Pull up a stool, grab a cold one, and get ready spend some time at the Rooster Bar.
Turtles All The Way Down
In his long-awaited return, John Green, the acclaimed, award-winning author of Looking for Alaska and The Fault in Our Stars, shares Aza’s story with shattering, unflinching clarity in this brilliant novel of love, resilience, and the power of lifelong friendship.
The Dark Tower
Based on the best-selling book series by author Stephen King. The last Gunslinger, Roland (Iris Elba), has been locked in an eternal battle with the Man in Black (Matthew McConaughy), determined to prevent him from toppling the Dark Tower, which holds the universe together. Rated PG-13.
Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell NoTales
The final adventure begins. Set sail with Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp) as deadly ghost sailors, led by the terrifying Captain Salazar (Javier Bardem), escape from the Devil’s Triangle bent on killing every pirate at sea--notably, Jack—in an epic story packed with humor, suspense and amazing special effects. Rated PG-13.
From Disney-Pixar comes an epic adventure packed with heart, hilarity, and full-throttle fun. Blindsided by a new generation of blazing-fast racers led by arrogant hotshot Jackson Storm, the legendary Lightening McQueen (Owen Wilson) is suddenly sidelined and pushed from the sport he loves. To get back on track, he’ll need the help of eager young racing technician Cruz Ramirez. Loaded with unforgettable characters and spectacular animation. Rated G.
Ho, ho, ho there you have it, folks. Fun for everyone on a cold winter’s night, or day, for that matter. All of us here at your Community Library wish you and yours and a very Merry Christmas and joyous New Year. Stay warm and may the blessings of the season be with you.
