Have you heard of http://www.booksprouts.com/? The Oak Grove Public Library has started a virtual book club using BookSprouts. Currently it is set so that you have to be invited in order to participate; however, all you have to do is email me at mdevries@lamar.lib.ms.us to be invited.This virtual book club is open to all of you and anybody else whom may want to participate, regardless of geographical location - just email me.We will be able to discuss the books we read for the "physical" book club as well as anything else you are reading or have read. I think this has the potential to be very, very cool.Michael

Our Friends of the Library have decided that we need landscaping and I have to say that they are correct. So, we are now getting our front lawn landscaped. If things go well, it should all be done by the end of the week. I should also add that the Friends of the Oak Grove Public Library are paying for the whole thing. Thank You!
