Friends of Murphy Library will be holding our Trash to Treasures Yard Sale on May 4, from 9 am to 2 pm, and May 5 from 9 am to 1 pm.

We still need your donations to fill our tables!

If you have any closets that need "re-organizing", bring those treasures to the library anytime for our sale, and let your friends know we need their treasures too!

Thank you all so much!

Murphy Library celebrates the 100th anniversary of Leonard Bernstein's birth

This year everyone around the world is celebrating the 100th birthday of composer, pianist, conductor, and teacher, Leonard Bernstein.

The Library of Congress has given access to its extensive collection of Bernstein’s work.  He not only composed and conducted orchestras, but also helped students learn more about music.  Go to

 to see all that’s available.  There is even part of the collection for teachers to use!

That other special library, the Murphy Public Library, is showing a landmark film West Side Story about two gangs in New York and a boy and girl who fall in love, and showcasing Bernstein’s music.

The library is showing this film Thursday at 6 p.m.  Running time is 153 minutes.  It won 10 Oscars!  And it’s always good to see again.
