Ready for a celebration to brighten up these winter days?
You won't want to miss this year's Mardi Gras celebration on Feb. 9 sponsored by the Brown County Literacy Coalition!
We'll have food, Dixieland, jazz and Cajun music, fortune tellers, jugglers, mimes, dancing, auctions and a good time for all
beginning at 6 p.m. at the Brown County Playhouse.
Tickets are $32.50 each at the door, but a limited number are available ahead of time for only $25.
Advance tickets may be purchased at the Literacy Coalition office
in the basement of the Brown County Public Library or from coalition board members.
Costumes are encouraged and we'll have masks and beads for the crowd.
First Little Free Library at Mother's Cupboard in Bean Blossom
Second LFL at Gatesville General Store
Third library at IGA in Nashville.
Where will the next library be placed???
Three Little Free Libraries sponsored by the Brown County Literacy Coalition are now in place.
They are stocked with children's and adult books which can be taken from the library and returned at any time.
Coalition members will keep the little libraries, which hold about 50 books, stocked.
Some of the people involved in the projects are shown with the libraries, which were built by members of the Brown County Woodworkers Club
Additional libraries are expected to be completed soon, thanks to collaboration between the Brown County Woodworkers Club and the literacy coalition.
More than 10,000 books were available at this year's used book sale which was moved inside to the Brown County Library (due to threatening weather).
More than 2,000 were sold.
The Mission of Brown County Literacy Coalition is to work cooperatively to
foster the economic and creative potential of our community by
promoting increased literacy in those who live here.
