Garden club decorates library

"Our highest assurance of the goodness of Providence seems to me to rest in the flowers. All other things, our powers, our desires, our food, are all really necessary for our existence in the first instance. But this rose is an extra. Its smell and its color are an embellishment of life, not a condition of it. It is only goodness which gives extras, and so I say again that we have much to hope from the flowers." - Sir Arthur Conan Doyle

On behalf of the trustees of the Jamestown Philomenian Library, the library staff and the people of Jamestown, we would like to thank the Jamestown Garden Club for decorating the library in the spirit of the season. Once again, at the doorways, we have beautiful swags welcoming all. There is a glorious tree in the hallway and red poinsettias everywhere. This year, please take the time to wander down the hallway to the rotunda, where you will be greeted by a beautiful display of cyclamen, greens, moss, and pottery.

Thank you, Jamestown Garden Club, and a special thanks to Joan Taft, the library volunteer who provides the lovely fresh flower arrangements you see every Monday morning at the front desk. We refer you to the quote above.

Judith H. Bell, library director
