The annual holiday bazaar was another successful public event for the Friends of the Kim Yerton Library. They spoke with countless folks from the community and told them about the library and invited them not only to visit the library but to purchase a ticket for the raffle of 11 holiday gift baskets; the winners were selected by a drawing after 2 pm. Six baskets were claimed by folks still at the Neighborhood Facility, and the five other winners have been called and they will come to KYML this week and take home their treasures. Read More →

We don’t have the distraction of weeds to pull or crops to harvest in the garden; we can just take that tome and transport ourselves to another place and time Read More →

Photo btyKristin Freeman, Kim Yerton Memorial Library.Fall colors are beginning to brighten the landscape; a drive along the Trinity River to Weaverville required many stops for photo opportunities; next weekend I will head up the Klamath and get some shots of the colors along the river allowing plenty of time for the drive. I’ll lunch in Yreka and then head back and see if some of the afternoon light and shadows provides some different pictures to capture; fall is so beautiful in northeastern Humboldt County.
