ARE YOU A GARDENER?

DO YOU SAVE SEEDS?

Come to

The Down East Public Library

on

WEDNESDAY, MAY 22

6-8 PM

Our speaker for the evening will be Don Piper who will speak on the subject of “Soils & Permaculture Principles!  We’ll also be discussing the basics, problems, helpful hints and ways and means of making your gardens prettier and more productive.  Seeds are available to take home and plant. . .and we hope that when your plants render seeds, you will bring some to share with others!  We also have lots of informational handouts.

If you are interested, please stop by to let Tia know, or give her a call at 252-728-1333 so that we can have some idea of how many will be attending.

Come join us to exchange ideas and just have a good time!

Ms. Libby's Storytime

Storytime!

Storytime is the first step on the road to reading!

 Mondays at 10 a.m., with our very own Ms. Libby. 

 

R.E.A.D. with Myia!

 Please Call 252-728-1333 to register

This program is the Reading Education Assistant Dogs Program, and is dedicated to improving the reading skills and interests of participants through the use of a registered therapy team as literacy mentors. Having been trained as a Coastal Carolina Pet Provided Therapy Team, Jack Orton and Myia are the perfect duo for this program. When we offer these events, a sign-up sheet will be available ahead of time at the Down East Public Library for people to register to read to Myia for a 15 minute period of time. We hope to offer this worthwhile program again soon!

Myra is survived by her loving husband, O. Wright Overton; daughter, Peggy Overton; sons Orville Wright Overton, Jr., and William Overton; sister, Laura Mae Walker; and brothers Ricky Norman and Frank Norman.
The family will hold a memorial at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, please make memorial donations in her honor to the Down East Public Library; 702 Hwy 70 East (Otway), Beaufort, NC 28516; (252)728-1333. Please indicate on the check that it is a memorial donation and it is in honor of Mrs. Myra Overton.
Myra Overton was a wonderful patron of the Down East Library. She was an avid reader and would always knit a beautiful afghan for us every year as a prize in the Summer Reading Program!
She will be missed!
