Friends of Aram

February 2023

Winter is here! If you’re looking for an entertaining book to read, a good
movie to watch or an interesting program to attend, check out Aram Library!

And if the spirit moves you to start your spring cleaning early, remember
that the Friends continue to welcome your gently used books, movies,
music, and games! New donations coming in are added to our perpetual
sale shelves near the parking lot entrance (where you’ll find a nice variety of readable treats for your special Valentine) and to our carts near the elevator on the main level!

For young readers, we have a cart of juvenile and teen books downstairs by
the Children’s Library. To celebrate Valentine’s Day, this month you can
purchase romance paperbacks for $.50 each or 3/$1.00. DVDs are still on
sale for buy 3 at $1.00 each and get one free.

Springtime in March? It may seem so! Friends have invited Brittney
Hesebeck from Delavan’s Busy B’s Garden Center to tell us about Spring
Container Gardening and offer tips and tricks on how to create the perfect
container gardens and how to maintain them! Mark your calendar for
Thursday, March 16th from 1:30 to 3 p.m. and join us!
As always, if you have questions or need additional information about us,
please e-mail us at

Wishing you sunshine and warmth throughout this month of February and a ‘heartfelt’ and Happy Valentine’s Day! Hope to see you at Aram Library!

May no gift be too small to give nor too simple to receive which is wrapped
in thoughtfulness and tied with love. L. O. Baird
