Get well soon, Deb
As many of you have probably heard our Director Deb Johnson experienced quite a fall. She broke her right wrist, left shoulder, and shattered her right shoulder, resulting in plates, screws and shoulder replacement surgery. She has been in the Greeley hospital and will be coming home to Brush soon.
The staff at the library have been answering the many questions everyone has expressed as best as we can. We also know that many of you would like to express your thoughts and best wishes to Deb. In an effort to help, we have a bulletin board in the front of the library that you may “leaf” your best wishes and a basket that you may put any notes that you would like Deb to receive. We will be delivering them in a timely manner. We also can deliver any personal cards you would like to send as well.
Also, many of our patrons have asked about taking meals for the family. The family would greatly appreciate meals so we have a list at the library of patrons who would like to help out in that way. We are waiting for Deb’s family to let us know when they will be ready to take those meals. So, if you would like you can come in or call and we can put you on the list we have started and will call when we know the family is ready to take meals.
Thank you to all our great patrons for all your thoughts and prayers.

We are getting ready to start our coordination with the Brush Middle School Book and Movie Club. We will meet to discuss Catching Fire by Suzanne Collins – the second book in the Hunger Games Trilogy. Our next meeting is Wednesday, September 18th from 3:30 – 4:30. Join us in the activity room.

When two sisters set out across a remote stretch of Montana road to visit their friend, little do they know it will be the last time anyone might ever hear from them again. The girls—and their car—simply vanish.
