Odessa library celebrates 25 years

ODESSA—The Dutton S. Peterson Memorial Library in Odessa is celebrating its 25th anniversary this year.
Kicking off the event will be an open house, Monday, Jan. 31.  The event will run from 2 to 6 p.m.  Library Director Gayle Greuber said here will be scrapbooks chronicling the changes to the library over the years.
The library will then hold various events throughout the year in celebration of 25 years.  During February Fun Weekend, Feb. 10 to Feb. 12, there will be a bake sale, a pajama storybook time, and an art program.  The story time is Feb. 10; people can come listen to bedtime stories in their pajamas at 6:30 p.m.
JoAnn Smith, art teacher, will hold a floorcloth (or rug) painting class Feb. 12 at 9 a.m.  The class is limited to people 16 years old and up.  Greuber said floorcloth painting is an art not practiced much anymore.  To register, call  the library at 594-2791.
Odessa caricaturist Jonathan Haeffner will hold an event March 5 at the library and Elmira author Tedd Arnold will speak March 26 at the Odessa Municipal Building.  Greuber said attendance is expected to be more than the library can hold.
Drawings with books as prizes will also be a part of every celebratory event.  Other programs are in the works, but Greuber said they have not been approved as it is still early in the year.
Greuber said the library has grown into its space and offers a lot, even if it is a smaller library.
“The children’s program is quite well known in the community,” she pointed out.  “The library as a whole is well known in the community.”
