It was a cookie celebration Monday, Feb. 4 when the Friends of the Library gathered for their annual salad luncheon at Phillips County Museum. Cookie cookbooks and colorful treats emphasized the “Be a Smart Cookie ... READ!” theme of the event.
Friends of the Library celebrated a good year, which included events like the Book Bonanza in the fall and Library Extravaganza at Christmas, where they sold cookbooks featuring recipes from the salad luncheon.
