Have you ever wondered how it’s possible for Libraries in towns the size of Cedar Vale are able to survive and in a lot of cases thrive?  It’s because of organizations like the Southeast Kansas Library System and the amount of work they put into keeping all of the libraries under their umbrella going.  Here’s a little bit of what they did for CVML last year.

Join us this month to help break in our new projector! We will be watching “Catching Fire” the second in the Hunger Games Trilogy here at the library on Friday, March 14th at 6pm. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.

Our book and movie club choice for March is “Big Fish: A novel of mythic proportions” The story of a braggart and exaggerator, Edward Bloom, and his son, William sets out, trying to unravel fact from fiction. This mission leads him through his father’s tall tales of adventure, romance, floods, strange towns, and of course a very big fish. Copies of the book are available all month at the library. We will watch the movie Friday, March 28th at 6pm. After the film we will have a short discussion regarding the similarities and differences between the book and the film. Snacks and refreshments will be provided.
