Chili Lunch and Bake Sale Thursday from 11 to 1 at library along with Scholastic Book Sale and Cooking Supplies Sale
Posted October 12, 2014on:
Book lovers know that turning over the last page of a good novel means another mystery, history or blistery tome is waiting in the wings. It’s the same with chili. This Thursday the Murphy Library has a treat for the chili lovers who left the Cherokee County Chamber’s Chili Cook Off last Saturday with smiles on their faces.
Friends of Murphy Library are holding a Chili Lunch and Bake Sale this Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Librarian Jeff Murphy is cooking his special chili, and the Friends are baking up fresh artisan bread to go with it. Tickets are $7 and may be purchased in advance. Water and coffee are included.
The Bake Sale will offer homemade cookies, cakes, bread and maybe a pie or two. The Scholastic Book Sale shelves are holding treasures throughout the library. The Cooking Supplies Sale can be found in the breezeway. Call 837-2417 for details and to donate to the bake sale.

Want to learn a little Spanish? The next time it rains for days in Cherokee County, look out the window, sigh, and say “Tanta agua.” It translates as “so much water.” Tanta Agua is also the name of the next movie from Film Movement at the Murphy Library this Thursday at 6 p.m. The film is in Spanish with subtitles in English.
Even though this story takes place in Uruguay, there are lots to relate to, especially the teenage daughter when she rolls her eyes.
Alberto is a divorced father who doesn’t often see his children. He takes his 14-year-old daughter and ten-year-old son to a warm springs spa in northwest Uruguay for a few days and family time with them. Unfortunately, it begins to rain and doesn’t stop…for days. In other words, you guessed it, “tanta agua.” Ever been on a trip like that? What is a teenager to do but create a few diversions for herself.
Do not come to the next Murphy Library movie if you don’t like sweets! Jenna, the main character works in a diner, and besides waiting on tables, she is the official pie baker. The Murphy Library is showing Waitress, a film filled with laughter and tears this Thursday at 6 p.m. It is rated PG-13 and running time is 108 minutes.
Jenna’s marriage is not good and she finds herself pregnant, and then there is the new doctor in town – not a recipe for a good outcome. Perhaps Old Joe, the elderly owner of the diner (played by North Carolina native, Andy Griffith, no less) will have some words of wisdom for her.
The pies in this movie inspire Friends of Murphy Library’s lunch and bake sale fundraiser coming on Thursday, October 16. Jenna loves to name her pies, and bakers donating to the bake sale can name their gifts after a favorite book, like Gone with the Wind Whoopie Pies?
Call the library at 837-2417 for details and to let us know what dessert you can donate! Thank you for all your support and enjoy the movie.
