Library contests!

Congratulations to Shawn-tel and Summon Lay, who correctly identified the sources of today's Black History Month quotes!

“Hate is too great a burden to bear. It injures the hater more than it injures the hated.”-- Coretta Scott King

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.”-- Martin Luther King Jr.

Watch Monday for the next questions. They are going to get harder!

I also wanted to remind you all of the "Year Of" Contest. I know you all have seen the flyers, but over the course of the year our entries have been tapering off. We only have two months left before the Wii giveaway in April, and your chances are EXCELLENT!

All you have to do is read a "Year Of"-related book or watch a "Year Of"-related video on reserve in the library. Write a BRIEF review--only one long paragraph or two shorter paragraphs, and send it to Karen Preslock at The first place winner will receive a 4-gig flash drive and a "Year Of" t-shirt. The second place winner will also receive a "Year Of" t-shirt. ALL ENTRANTS will be placed in the drawing for the Nintendo Wii. You can enter more than once to improve your chances. Every week we have a special showing of a "Year Of" movie in the Funk Heritage Center; next Thursday's film will be "Smoke Signals." Come out and see it and write your review! Someone is going to win a Nintendo Wii, and it could be YOU.
