Byram Friends of the Library

On April 8th, the Friends of Byram Library hosted its first community event for the 2006-2007 year. Our Vice President, Randolph Costilow, dressed up in an Easter bunny costume. He stood out in the parking lot with another Friends member, Paco Rosales, to wave at folks passing by to come in to get their pictures made with the Easter bunny. We took over 75 pictures that day of children with the bunny. Carrie Jackson, President, and Carolyn Fields, Treasurer, helped the children decorate picture frames for the bunny picture. Adele Krichbaum, Secretary, placed washable tatoos on the little ones' arms. There was candy everywhere and we made a lot of new friends.

For May, we had a booth at the Citizens for Byram Incorporation which was held at the Swinging Bridge Speedway in Byram. The event was a fundraiser and BBQ contest. The turnout was unexpectedly low, but we did have a rather successful book sale and got to meet some more friends. Specifically, we met two very nice ladies from the Junior Auxiliary of Byram/Terry, Beth Burns and Lora Machost. They offered to partner with us for another book sale in the fall. We are extremely grateful for their coming to our booth and speaking with us.

The Friends of Byram Library will also be on hand on June 5th at the Beverly J. Brown Library on the opening day of registration for the Summer Reading Program to meet prospective new members of the Friends of Byram Library.

Our meetings are held on the third Saturday of every month at 11:00 a.m. in the Beverly J. Brown Library in Byram. Anyone is welcome to attend.
