Library holiday decorations

Over 100 teddy bears are adorning the “beary” special Christmas tree in the children’s section of the library. Be sure and stop and take a look. Toni Russo’s “Candy Land” display window features two wonderful gingerbread houses baked and decorated especially for the window by Mark Mueller. See the feature story for all the details on her latest creation (page 2). Stained glass Santa Clauses from around the world are hanging gaily in the windows behind the circulation desk. These Santa Clauses were all crafted by Charles Whetstine and are on loan to the library for the holiday season.

Poster kick-off

If you enjoy Toni’s display windows, why not pick up a poster as a memento of some of her previous works? Framed posters, “Of Time and Place” are currently on display at the library, Solon State Bank and Bridge Community Bank. Cost is $10 for unframed posters with discounts for multiple orders or $25 for framed posters. Orders may be placed by emailing SolonLibrFriends @aol.com or call Sue at 319-624-2632.

New books to check-out

While you are browsing through the decorations at the library, be sure and check out the new book shelf. Among those added this week were “The Drop” by Michael Connelly, “The Forgotten Affairs of Youth” by Alexander McCall Smith, and “The Vegan Slow Cooker” by Kathy Hester.
