Lemonade on the Lawn returns in July & August
by Libby Friends of the Library
June 23, 2014

Last March, the Libby Friends of the Library conducted a survey to determine the direction of Lemonade on the Lawn at the Library. To address concerns that the group wasnít meeting the desires of the community, input was requested to determine the preferred day and time, as well as the types of programs that would be of most interest. Using the survey responses, the Friends of the Library have made plans for this summer which we hope will entice everyone to come and enjoy the variety of programs.

Lemonade on the Lawn will take place the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of July and August at Noon on the library lawn. Free lemonade and a cookie will be provided, and lunch will be available for purchase, or youíre welcome to bring your lunch.

The events will kick off on July 9th with a musical performance by Bill Rossiter: Sixteen Tons and What Do You Get? Songs and Stories of Work in America. The songs from union halls, mines, fields, factories, picket lines and jail cells are the sound-track to an important part of American history, and they can still stir us. Always a crowd-pleaser, Rossiter comes to us through a grant from Humanities Montana Speakers Bureau. Partial funding for the Speakers Bureau program is provided by a legislative grant from Montanaís Cultural Trust.

On July 23rd, the next program, "Kootenai National Forest Lookouts" will be presented by archaeologist Becky Timmons. Learn the history and characteristic styles of these lookouts in our own backyard.

John Nores Jr., California Department of Fish and Wildlife Patrol Lieutenant and author will join us on August 13th to read from his book "War in the Woods: Combating the Marijuana Cartels on Americaís Public Lands" and share his experiences. For two decades, Lt. Nores has been investigating environmental crime and wildlife loss cases related to water pollution, stream alteration, habitat destruction, commercial black market wildlife sales, and all other aspects of wildlife resource crimes. He and his team specialize in suspect apprehension, marijuana eradication, environmental restoration, marijuana public safety outreach training, in addition to handling all other high risk tactical challenges faced by game wardens today. Lt. Nores is also featured in the National Geographic channelís game warden reality television series, "Wild Justice." "War in the Woods" has been optioned for a motion picture that is in development now.

Closing out this seasonís dates will be music by "Beyond Help" with Lee Tonner and friends on August 27th. This group is a local favorite with their bluegrass and Irish selections, among others.

Libby Friends of the Library hope that you will join us for free lemonade and a cookie while you enjoy these programs the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of July and August.
