Friends Week at Ruidoso Public Library with our Friends group and greeting the new Director!

To mark the close of Hispanic Heritage Month, check your cultural IQ with this quiz, brought to you through our online resource, Gale. This is where you can repair your car (Chilton's Manuals), identify weeds or mushrooms (e-Virtual Reference books), or learn a little about world cultures.  I need to read up, as I only scored about 60% myself!

This week honors Friends of the Library groups across the nation.  Please join their 501(c)3 (applications are at the circulation desk).  These are the volunteers who make the year-round bookshop possible.  They organize the Sponsor-a-Child program each Spring to fund Summer Reading Programs and prizes.

Ruidoso's Friends of the Library host an Open House each December.  That may sound like a busy group, but they are open to any sort of support you have to offer.

Thursday, from 3:30-5:30 pm, the Friends are hosting a reception for our new director, Corey Bard.  

Maybe you've already seen him around town? Please stop in if you have a chance to say, "Hi!"
