Many thanks to Louise MacDonald, Jan Ruiz, Linda Tempke, Martha Penz, Gail MacLean, Carey Randall, and Nora King for volunteering, and to Jo Ann Allen, Sharon Francis, Sammie Simpson, Margie King, Kathy Hoyt, Diane Pelczynski, Leslie Beaster, and Michelle Campbell for selling their crafts at Friends of Murphy Library’s Craft and Book Sale last week.

Special appreciation goes to Donna Getch and Donna Cook in the Cherokee Scout’s advertising department for their excellent advice. 

Our wonderful community made this event a success and local students are the winners. Proceeds will provide awards for the Cherokee County Middle School Spelling Bee later this fall.

Nora King brought her friends who volunteered to re-organize the books in the back breezeway.  They made it fun and easy to browse through the shelves and discover treasures.

The Crafts and Craft Supplies Sale raises 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, finished crafts and make a donation to the Bee fund.  They love to talk about their work. Sammie Simpson, Jo-Ann Allen, Sharon Francis, Kathy Hoyt and Leslie Beaster will have tables full of quilts, quilting fabrics, yarn, scrapbook items, sewing items and lots more.  The Friends sell donated items including a whittling set, tie-dye paints with t-shirts, fabrics, and frames.  Moreover, Friends members like Louise MacDonald are there to lend advice to novice crafters.

Are your bookshelves empty?  The Murphy Library’s Books in the Breezeway shelves have been reorganized making it easy to find your favorite authors, fiction and nonfiction, and lots of books on tape.  And when you buy books on tape, they leave your hands free for, what else, your favorite craft. Call 837-2417 for details.
