THANKS FOR GIVING!! There is no better time than Thanksgiving to express my sincere appreciation and gratitude to those who continue to make our “little log library” the warm and inviting haven that draws people from all over South Cheatham County. This year I am especially mindful of all of our volunteers who helped us the day after an EF-1 tornado did so much damage to our library.

A BIG THANK YOU to all who came and helped us pick up water logged books, vacuum up water, and get organized so that we could save as many items as possible. Thank you to the Tennessee Library Association,the ARK, and other generous donors who helped us recover after the disaster. Nine months later I can say that we are pretty much back to normal and so thankful to be serving our patrons once again. I want to thank those who have given of their time and talents to make this library the best it can be.

Those of special mention include: The Library Board of Trustees, Friends of the Library, Library Staff, patrons and individuals like Bill King who mows our lawn each week, Kingston Springs Church of Christ for the use of their parking lot, Gary Petty and Southside Disposal, Doug Phelps for writing our library article each week, The Master Gardeners of Cheatham County for keeping our garden so beautiful, Community Bank & Trust for our “Java Club” coffee machine, The Spontaneous Mountain Boys and Tim and Gretchen Priest-May for entertaining us with their music, and all those volunteers too numerous to mention.

I also thank The Kingston Springs Town Council, City Manager Laurie Cooper and the rest of the city staff in Kingston Springs as well as Mayor David McCullough and Cheatham County Government for their funding and support. A big thank you to Dale Graham for promoting us so well in the SC Advocate each week. Last, but most important are our patrons – we do what we do just for you! May you all enjoy an abundant Thanksgiving, a Joyous Christmas, and a Happy and Healthy New Year!

Janet Walker, Library Director
