On Sept. 29, Cooleemee’s Historical Association partnered with Davie County Public Library to provide a movie night for the community. An animated Spider-Man movie, popcorn, games and other refreshments were enjoyed by all.

The Bridge Church in Mocksville donated fresh apples, homemade goodies including baked and fried apple pies and candy and caramel apples. Hot apple cider and hot cocoa was an added treat.

Pastor Justin and Melisa Blue brought a freshness to the event and our appreciation and gratitude go to them and their church community.

Lisa Nielsen, chair of the board of trustees, Karen Martin, youth services librarian, Rachel Nelson, adult services  and technology librarian, and Teresa Bivins, Cooleemee representative on the board, were all present for this event to provide a questionnaire for the community to share their voice about the library in the Cooleemee Shopping Center.  What do they like about it, how can it be improved  and other helpful discussions from the community.

Upcoming events:

• Oct.  28, 6-8 p.m., ghost stories and s’mores around the fire pits at the Zachary House; and

• Nov. 4 chicken stew at 3 p.m. at the Zachary House.
