Exeter Public Library Hosts Art Show

The Exeter Public Library is currently hosting the GFWC Exeter Woman's Club Art Show.  Stop in and see the amazing work of local residents and Exeter-Milligan students.
This is a great month for a visit to the library.  For the third year in a row the library is participating in the Southeast Library System's "Library Madness" competition. 

 Much like the NCAA basketball tournament, it is bracketed. Library Madness pits area libraries against one another, seeing who can tally the most checkouts each week. The checkouts are calculated per capita, so that smaller libraries are not at a disadvantage. Exeter Public Library will be competing as the "Exeter Eagles". Competition begins Monday, March 9.

Art students participated in the GFWC local art contest. A judge from out of town came in to view
the pieces and selected the following students as winners! The selected students will have their piece on
display from until March 11 at the Exeter Public Library.
 The 1st place winning pieces will go on to be judged at districts on March 17th. Congratulations!

Congratulations all who participated! I encourage you all to take a few minutes in the next couple of weeks
to go and look at the art on display. The youth worked hard to prepare their pieces to show and our local
GFWC as well as the Librarian has worked hard to present this show for you to enjoy.
