If you are an artist or craftsperson, or want to be, don’t miss Friends of Murphy Library’s popular Craft Supplies Sale and Books in the Breezeway Sale on Friday and Saturday from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m.
This is the 5th year the Craft Supplies Sale has been raising money for prizes in the Cherokee County Schools annual Spelling Bee. The Bee is co-sponsored by The Cherokee Scout’s Newspaper in Education and Friends of Murphy Library.
Crafters and artists sell their excess supplies and gift items and love to talk about their work. Terrie Allen will be there with her jewelry and Sammie Simpson with quilting items, along with Vivien Schell, Sharon Wilson, Jo-Ann Allen, Sharon Francis, and Margie King. They will have tables full of quilting fabrics, yarn, scrapbook items – you name it, they can help you. We also have a pottery wheel for sale and lots of finished crafts.
Are your bookshelves empty? The Murphy Library’s Books in the Breezeway bookshelves are loaded and waiting with great titles for fall reading for all ages. Call 837-2417.

Friends’ board members Bob MacLean and Mike Moumousis did the ultimate job for the Friends’ Auction. They picked up the Shopsmith Mark V tool system, loaded it in Mike’s truck and took it to Bob Grove Auctions.
Come to Friends of Murphy Library’s Auction this Saturday, August 7, and buy it for your favorite person. He or she will thank you for a long time.
The Silent Auction begins at 5 p.m., the Live Auction at 7 p.m., at Bob Grove Auctions, 7540 Highway 64, Brasstown, NC 28902, 6 miles east of Murphy, NC on “NEW” US 64. Phone: 828-837-9200. Free refreshments. Donations of finger food welcome.
But the Auction is for everyone —-handy or not —– want to go out to eat? We have gift certificates to restaurants. Want to get your hair done? Bid on one of our beauty salon certificates.
Longtime supporters Steve and Jane Hembree donated the Shopsmith Mark V. The single machine contains a table saw, lathe, disc sander, vertical drill press and horizontal boring machine and fits into a two by six space.
The auction has something for everyone. Cooks will find cookbooks, dishes, a Carolina Crafting apron, and wear a Silva Gallery scarf while preparing trout from Andrews’s Carolina Mountain Trout.
Still hungry? Restaurant gift certificates include everyone from Doyle’s to Downtown Pizza, from Arby’s to Antica Roma.
Wagonmaster Adventure Ranch offers one night, Holiday Inn Express two nights. Bear Creek Mini-Golf, an outing for four.
Sue Ellen Woodford’s gift baskets coddle everyone from fishermen to coffee drinkers, with donations from Clay’s Corner, Yarn Circle, Blue Moon Elise, China Town, the Daily Grind and Wine, Calaboose Cellars, Dr. Dave Peters, and Crane Creek.

Friends of Murphy Library are celebrating Community Night at Brothers Restaurant, 5722 Highway 64 West on Monday, April 5 from 4:30 to 8:30.
Everyone is encouraged to bring friends and family to dine at this family eatery. On Community Night, Brothers donates a portion of the night’s proceeds to the sponsoring organization.
The money raised will help children.
Librarian Jeff Murphy and Sarah Arnaudin, the Youth Services librarian, want to update the nonfiction books in the juvenile area at the Murphy Library. Many are outdated and there is nothing like bright, shiny books to entice children to read.
Reminder flyers can be found at Murphy Xpress Lube on the back of their invoices or at the Murphy Library. Call 837-2417 for details.
