LIBRARY NEWS: Flowers are the poetry of nature.  Flowers are the essence of spring.  Those are familiar quotes that many have heard and embrace.  How better to welcome spring then by displaying flowers all around.  Friends of the Parkersburg Library would like to help by promoting their spring flower sale, beginning this week at the Kothe Memorial Library. There are two types of flowers being offered: geraniums and arganthemums. You may choose from coral, dark red, or orchid colored geraniums.  These are cutting geraniums and are priced at $8.00 each or 3 for $21.00. The arganthemums are all white with yellow centers.  They reach a height of 18" to 36" tall and sell for $5.00 a piece.  Both kinds of plants do well in full sun. The fundraiser helps support and promote various library projects throughout the year.  Please stop in the library at 309 3rd Street in Parkersburg and purchase some of these beautiful flowers. 

The Brown Bag Book Club is pleased to announce their new selection, Kabul Beauty School by Deborah Rodriquez, as their book for the month of May.
