Reopening and closings. The Bogue Banks Public Library reopened on Tuesday,
October 16, after having closed on September 11 for Hurricane Florence and
remaining closed because of air quality impacts from the storm. “It was like being
in a room where sheetrock was being sanded,” commented Donna Freernan, Adult
Services Librarian. After the air in the library was tested, professional air cleaning
equipment was installed, operating for several days. Overdue fines will be waived
for the days the library was closed.
The library will be closed on November 12 for Veterans Day and on November
22-23 for Thanksgiving.
Book Nook. The Book Nook, operated by the Friends of Bogue Banks Library,
remains closed and donations of materials cannot be accepted at this time. The
Nook received significant rainwater intrusion; all the books and shelves are
relocated until the Nook can be sanitized and the carpeting replaced. There is no
time frame for reopening, but “people should watch for our Grand Reopening
Party,” says Barbara McCreary, pre’sklent of the group.
Activities for children. Preschool Storytime for ages 3-5 is held each Thursday
at 10 a.m. with Ms. Brita.
• Thursday, November 1, will be “Save a Turkey: Feast on Books.”
• Thursday, November 8, will be “Bird is the Word.”
• Thursday, November 15, will be “Thankful and Grateful.”
• Thursday, November 22, the library will be closed.
• Thursday, November 29, will be “Stuffed!”
Featured artwork. In the library’s art gallery in November will be photography
by Doug Waters. Doug’s interest in photography began with his love of surfing.
He began surfing at an early age and moved to Hawaii after high school. Living
in Hawaii, he watched some of the world’s greatest surf photographers getting
the opportunity to film some of the world’s best waves—and that is when Doug
purchased his first camera and was bitten by the photo bug. As time went on,
his photographs were being recognized by the surfing magazines, highlighting
the talents of surfers on the east coast, particularly North Carolina and Florida.
He eventually became a senior staff photographer at Surfing Magazine. He was
inducted into the East Coast Surfing Hall of Fame in the media division in 2010.
His photographs appear in the Coastal Review Online, the website for the NC
Coastal Federation, EarthSky.org and our local astronomy club, CCGazers.com
(Crystal Coast Stargazers). Doug’s photograph of close friend Buddy Pelletier is
used on the NC specialty plate for the Buddy Pelletier Surf Foundation. Doug
resides in Morehead City, enjoying photographing the beauty around us, our night
sky and, as always, waves.
The library’s showcase will feature carvings by George Brooks. The carvings of
shorebirds, herons, dolphins, and a dock are crafted in a variety of woods, some
familiar (like walnut and teak) and some exotic (zebra wood from Africa).
There is no artist reception in November.
