Spring Flower Bulb Fundraiser by the Friends of HTFL

The Friends of HTFL are, once again, raising money for the Library. Don't miss the opportunity to beautify your garden with your purchase of flower bulbs through the Friends' online Spring Fundraiser.  Purchase the bulbs online and they will be shipped directly to your house.  All you need is the trowel!  

50% of the profits go to the Friends to help the Library purchase the "extras" such as televisions, audio equipment, Summer Reading Club programs for your enjoyment-I could go on and on.

Our favorite way to socialize? GAMING. Lazy gaming, competitive gaming, whatever. Just get that controller in our hands. Keep an eye out for tournament announcements! Some T-Rated games will be played in this club.

Teens love to eat, so here's their opportunity to learn their way around the kitchen. Don't worry, we're conscientious about allergies! This runs concurrently with HTFL Game.

Memorial Day

Let us not forget the real meaning of Memorial Day.  It is not just the start of the summer season, and a time to have picnics and barbeques, but a time to remember our fallen heroes, our nation's military who have given their lives in the service of their country.

Dedicated United States military men and women are serving around the world every day.  Please keep them, along with our deceased service men and women, and their families and friends, in your thoughts and prayers on this holiday.

Ode to the Sparkling Icicle

Oh how the water trickles down branches

And forms you lovely, sparkling icicles.

But when winter is over, you melt, 

Until next year.

Oh exquisite, elegant icicle.

Ode to Cinnamon Buns

You are a lovely roll up of cinnamon and cream,

How you melt in my mouth, when I bite into you,

You pair perfectly with the Sunday morning routine,

Oh sweet morning treat, 

What would I do without you!
