Plan to attend the Friends of the Library special presentation -“Buffalo Bill” on Saturday, July 14. The history of the Wild West and Wyoming will be featured through songs, stories and traditional Native American sign language. The program will be held at the Fairgrounds arena and will begin at 12:30 p.m. Suitable for the entire family and sure to be a hit this project is sponsored in part by a grant from the Wyoming Arts Council, through funding from the Wyoming State Legislature and the National Endowment for the Arts, which believes that a great nation deserves great art.

Also on Saturday the 14th the Library Foundation will be holding a No-Limit Texas Hold-em Tournament at the fairgrounds. Play is limited to the first 50 paid players; stop by the library to register or for more information. You can also contact Tom Dooper, 334-2013 or 334-2500 or Liz Kaltenheuser, 334-2906.

New for adults is “Cataloochee” by Wayne Caldwell. This is a classic novel of place and family set in the mountains of western North Carolina.
