Today fans of  author J.K. Rowling celebrate the twentieth anniversary of the publication of her book Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone (a.k.a.  Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone). The display of a  new Potter Emoji  was merely one of the ways the internet marked the occasion!




The Emory & Henry Wasp Cheerleaders were kind enough to show their support for your local library and we appreciate it!  Of course, libraries really are something to cheer about!  Books, magazines, DVDs, Audio books, computer, internet, and printer access all in one handy location!  What more could you want?

We feel your pain, Pouty Bride.  You planned to have your wedding tonight but that was before you found out that Smyth-Bland Regional Library’s Adult Summer Programs start at 6:00 tonight in the Marion Library’s Copenhaver Meeting Room.   Just  run down the aisle and come here for board games, card games   (- no Old Maid) ,  and coloring pages! Your groom will understand,  He might even love to color.   It will all work out and if not you’ll still be the best dressed person at the Program so it is a win win situation either way!
