One of the most important tasks in the world is to teach little children to read. The next time you’re in the Murphy Library, look into the meeting room and see how the community encourages our young ones. The Storytime wall has been completed and it is beautiful.
Many thanks to Sarah Arnaudin, Youth Services Librarian and Storytime mom, Emilie Jones, who made it happen. Their energy is contageous. Our only fear is that they will start their own television program: “Makeovers for libraries!”
Sherwin-Williams helped with sage advice, paint discounts and supplies. Local painter, Robert Smith donated his time to prime.
Artist Mickey Tomczak painted an incredible tree mural. She even included leaves dropping from the tree. Shel Silverstein’s book “The Giving Tree,” was her inspiration. The library has a copy – read it if you get a chance.
Karen Wayman gave us the material for the chalkboard. Lowe’s donated the paint and supplies.
Josh Crayton (his kids love Storytime) framed and installed the chalkboard.
Christian Love’s thrift store offered an old cocktail table and Larry King transformed it into an elegant book display table just the right height for young readers.
Friends of MurphyLibrary provided funds for paint and supplies.
And now Sandra Rowland’s Friends community quilt glows with joy at the homey feeling of the room.
Good job everyone. It always feels great to be part of the Murphy community – - especially this week.
