You know that the Lakeport Community Association has always been a friend of the Goss Reading Room, 188 Elm Street, Lakeport.
Well, now some of our members have established the Friends of the Goss Reading Room. We intend to have programs to expand the use of this little library on the knoll and offer our neighbors and students more resources, community services and entertainment.
We held our first meeting there in November forming a interim board of directors, constitution and by-laws. We are in the process of filing for non-profit status and need a good lawyer.
The month of December, we hosted Kirk Dougal's collection of penguins for Parade of the Penguins exhibit and provided fun penguin worksheets, pencils and notebooks to all the students who used the library.
January 20, Lakeport's own, David Hough, genealogist and Coordinator for Belknap Gen Web, introduced The Family Tree, the root of the matter to nearly two dozen guests starting with the best resources to use. Many are hoping for more sessions.
Each month, we hope to feature a children's theme and an adult presentation on the third Thursday, 6 p.m. at the Goss.
Watch for our new blog section on Friends of the Goss Reading Room.
