Nancy's Notes - April 2, 2015

History, new videos, “In Every Way” by Nic Brown.

         When the library opened its doors in 1908 the first board members were: Mrs. C.M. Nagle, president; W.T.R. Humphrey, secretary; E.A. Alexander, A. E. Weber, Frank Walker , M.A. Mickelson, Mrs B.P.Birdsall, Mrs. C.F. Peterson and Mrs. George Young. An article from the March 8, 1958 Wright County Monitor informed readers that there had been only four librarians during the first fifty years of the Morgan Everets Library. The first librarian was Mrs. G.T. Eldridge.  Those others who followed Eldridge were, Ana Nagle, Mrs. B.P. Birdsall, who served for 29 years and Mrs. Frank Littlefield who was the librarian at the time the article was written.
        We have recently purchased some movies that might be of interest. Last week we added: Annie, Unbroken, Into the Woods, The Hobbit: The Battle of Five Armies, and Call the Midwife. Two of these movies were nominated for academy awards. Stop in and check them out then you can critique them to see if you think they should have been award winners.
        New to our shelves is, “In Every Way”, the tale of Chapel Hill college student Maria. She finds herself unexpectedly pregnant at nineteen. Still reeling from the discovery of her mother's diagnosis with cancer, Maria's decides to give her daughter up for adoption, which seems to be in everyone's best interest. So when her mother proposes an extended trip to sleepy coastal town Beaufort, the same town where the adoptive couple Maria had chosen for her daughter just happen to live, Maria jumps at the chance to escape. Maria soon becomes bored and a summer job seems like a cure. She has kept close watch on the couple she chose to adopt her daughter and soon accepts a position as their nanny.
