      Why:

      • A Taste of Soup and Art Exhibit began 2007 with a dual purpose. The first was and
        still is to raise funds to help with purchases for the Carrollton North Carrollton
        Library. The Friends of the Carrollton-North Carrollton Library [FoL] based this fundraiser on one in Arkansas and added the art exhibit to recognize some of the many talented people in Carroll County. Some of the artists will have items for sale and
        others will not.

An Art Exhibit

Artists to be featured include:
:
      • Elizabeth Saunders as our youth artist
      • Linda James – paintings
      • Pam Shaw – birdhouses
      • Charlene Senn – machine embroidery
      • and Stephanie Clanton – photography.

A Taste of Soup and Art Exhibit has been very successful, allowing us to purchase everything from books to racks to hold books on tape or CD to landscaping for the library.

We also help with the different activities, such as the summer reading program and book signings for local authors.
Games & Door Prizes.

A number of door prizes will again be given away. However, this year instead of drawing tickets, answers to trivia questions about Mississippi will be the way to win prizes. So look up Mississippi Trivia before you come and pay attention to the posters and table decorations so you too can win a door prize.

The doors of the Community House
open at 11 AM
and the soup sampled until 12:30 PM
