The Luther Library has purchased a movie license to be able to show movies. Their next movie event will be “Ladies Movie Night” at 6 p.m. on Saturday. There will be a potluck dinner, followed by the movie “Julie & Julia” starring Meryl Streep and Amy Adams. Bring your favorite dish to pass and your favorite recipe to share with others. It could be the recipe for the dish you bring to the potluck, or another family favorite. Call the library at 797-8006 to RSVP so they know how many to expect. Other family members are also invited and welcome to attend.

Starting in May, Family Game Night will be held at the library on the second Thursday of each month from 6 until 8 p.m. Come to the library for card games, board games, dominos, legos, the Wii, popcorn and more!

Preschool Story Hour will continue to be held throughout the summer at the library on Mondays at 11 a.m. until noon. Children ages 1-6 are welcome to attend. An adult must attend with the preschooler. Come for a story, a craft, a snack and fun!

The Library Garden Committee was awarded a Lake County Community Foundation grant. New benches, a picnic table, mulch and many plants & flowers will be purchased for the garden. A children’s raised vegetable garden is also being planned.

Get well wishes are extended to Edith Purchase who had recent surgery. We are told she is recovering nicely and is on the mend. Speedy recovery, Edith!

A Twisted Fate

The paper clip was invented in Britain in 1900 to help manage the paperwork of the British Empire.  Despite the single purpose design, many a paper clip used today meets a twisted fate. A study by Lloyds of London shows what we mean. Of 100,000 paper clips:

• 25,000 dropped on the floor and swept away

• 19,143 used as chips in card games

• 14,163 bent and twisted for no specific purpose during card games

• 7,200 used to clip torn garments together

• 5,434 used as toothpicks

• 5,308 used as fingernail cleaners

• 3,916 used as pipe cleaners.

Who is the largest user of paper clips in the world?  The United States Government.

Thought for the week;  There is no satisfaction with being average. It means you’re the poorest of the good and the best of the worst.

Have a great week.
