Art fans were treated to a post-holiday Art Open House and Reception on Friday, Jan. 15 at Hulley’s Hideaway on the boardwalk. On display were the original works of Big Valley artist Vivian Hulley and her late husband Neil. Beginning at 5 p.m., the doors of the gallery stayed open until 9 p.m. Visitors included local regulars who came to lend their support, admire the art and sample the goodies, to out-of-towners lured in by the tantalizing aroma of fresh baked cinnamon buns and an opportunity to admire the wonderful paintings. Though quiet, the evening proved quite successful and another reception is planned for later this spring.

The Big Valley Municipal Library would like to acknowledge the invaluable contribution of all our volunteers, past and present. Since its inception, the library has benefited significantly from the generous involvement of community volunteers. Working with patrons, helping with projects, programs and community events; volunteers have been, and always will be, essential to the daily operation of our library. With their support, we have been able to connect our community to a world of ideas, literacy and lifelong learning. Important, essential, vital, dedicated… These words describe the people who have shared their time and talents to support and enhance every service we provide.

If you would like to acquire some new skills and knowledge while supporting literacy and lifelong learning, we have a rewarding opportunity for you. Make a significant difference in the community by becoming a library volunteer. The work is fun and the rewards are many. If you have some time to share, stop by the library.
