Friends of Murphy Public Library have a new idea for their potlucks: get together for lunch! This year between spring and fall the Friends have divided their usual dinners into two lunches and two dinners.

The first potluck lunch is this coming Tuesday, April 26 at 12 noon in the library’s meeting room.   Librarian Jeff Murphy and assistant librarian Melissa Barker will be there along with Friends members.

The cost of membership in the Friends is $10 per year. This fun group works to enhance the library and fill its bookshelves. Everyone is welcome to bring their favorite potluck dish and meet their book and movie-loving neighbors.

Then come back on Wednesday, April 27 at 11:00 a.m. in the library meeting room, Friends’ member Nicky Grant will teach a Tech Class: Why Upgrade to Windows 10?

The Friends are also holding their spring Trash to Treasures Yard Sale the following week on Friday, May 6 from 9 to 2 and Saturday, May 7, from 9 to 1. Donations are gladly accepted anytime. For more information, call 837-2417. Want to volunteer?  Come by the library and sign up — we would love to have your help!
