Quote of the Month
Reading maketh a full man; conference a ready man; and writing an exact man. And therefore, if a man write little, he had need have a great memory; if he confer little, he had need have a present wit: and if he read little, he had need havemuch cunning, to seem to know that he doth
not.”
--Francis Bacon

FROM THE DIRECTOR
The 2012 Hurricane season begins June 1 andcontinues until November 30. While we’ve notexperienced any significant hurricanes since 2005,we need to be prepared and expect the unexpected.This also might be the time for you to invest in a National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration(NOAA) weather radio that will operate on batteriesor from an electrical outlet. You’ll get weather alerts24 hours a day and it is a very handy item to have.The Library has one and we use it year round,especially to alert us for stormy weather. Make surethat you are ready for our tropical storm season.
 
During the month of April we offered a specialdeal to our patrons who had outstanding fines andoverdue books. In recognition of National LibraryWeek, we declared April to be Fine

Free Month.Many people took advantage of our offer andreturned their library materials or checked in with usto have their fines removed. Thank you to all our  patrons who took advantage of this offer.
 
Our Book, Bake, and Plant Sale held at the end of April was a great success. We sold many books,goodies, and plants. Thanks to all the Friends of theLibrary and Claybank Master Gardeners who workedfor months to get everything ready. Their hard work really paid off.

by Jocelyn Rayford
 
In the Genealogy Room, Ancestry.com is availableupon request. For those unacquainted withresearching on this site or on a computer, help isavailable. Usually, those new to the site becomecomfortable with it very quickly. Of interest toexperienced “Ancestry” researchers is the 1940 censusthat Ancestry.com has made available. However, if looking for a person who comes from a very populatedarea such as New York, New York, information is stilllimited.
 
We have the
 Map Guide to the U.S. Federal Censuses
, 1790
-
1920 by William Thorndale andWilliam Dollarhide. This can tell the researcher whichcensuses are not available for each state, and whichlands belonged to Native Americans during census periods. This could be helpful to those researchingtheir Native American origins. Also, helpful is

the Allotment of the FiveCivilized Tribes 1893
