A new full-time library director, Cynthia Hovind, joined the Langlois Public Library District last week. According to district board Chair Susan Orbom, “Cynthia’s enthusiastic personality, her interesting background and her professional experience as a rural librarian make her a perfect fit for our community. We are thrilled to have her on our staff.”

Hovind said she is delighted to be back on the Southern Coast. She comes to Langlois from Fall City (near Salem) and has also lived in Alaska and the San Juan Islands as well as Bandon some years ago. Educated in the Northwest, as an undergraduate at Evergreen College she focused on Native American studies and earned her masters degree at University of Oregon. She is a practiced storyteller and apprentice basket maker. On a good day, you will find her reading science fiction in her spare time and dabbling in her vegetable garden.

Planning is underway for al fresco summer events at Langlois Library, including an outdoor book sale, concert/ice cream social and movie nights on the lawn. The Friends of LPL who are sponsoring these events would welcome new members. Inquire at the library. Donations of gently used books are now being accepted.

There is still time (until March 18) to run for the LPL special district board, a wonderful community service opportunity. See the Curry County Clerk’s website co.curry.or.us .

Patrons can place holds online and find information about new books, library events, book donations, elections and much more on the library website langloispubliclibrary.org. Another great source of information and amusing library tidbits is the LPL Facebook page.

LPL will maintain its current schedule of curbside service and limited entrance by appointment weekdays from 11 a.m. through 4:30 p.m. for the next few weeks with the intention of being fully open in the near future. Watch the website and the reader board on the lawn for changes.
