New location for Friends of the Library Book Sale By Lynn Frederick Special to The PREVIEW

Mark your calendars now for the Friends of the Library annual sale. It will be held Aug. 16-17 at a new location. This year, it will be held at the Centerpoint Church, 2750 Cornerstone Drive. The sale for members will take place on Aug. 16, beginning with a potluck dinner at 6 p.m., followed by a very short meeting. At 7 p.m., members will have first choice to the books, CDs and DVDs. If you have not renewed your membership since last year’s sale, you can do it anytime from now until the sale. There will be an opportunity to join as you enter the church prior to the potluck. Of course, anyone is welcome to join for the first time, also. Membership is a reasonable $15 for one person, $25 for a family, or $100 for an individual lifetime membership. Call the library at 264-2209 to let them know if you will be attending the potluck and what you will be bringing. Table service and beverages will be pro-



vided. On Aug. 17, the book sale will be open for the general public from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Local patrons have been donating books for the past year for the sale. You will find something that interests you, regardless of your reading choices. We have everything from art to westerns conveniently located so you can go directly to the kind of book you prefer. And, don’t forget the children in your life; there will be books for them. In keeping with the modern library services, you will find CDs and DVDs, also. Merchandise will be priced so you can haul away enough to satisfy any bookworm for months. Hardbacks and large paperbacks are priced at $2; CDs and DVDs are $1 per disc; children’s books are only 10 cents. Cash and checks are accepted, but not credit cards. All proceeds from the sale will go to support the library. In the past, the sale has helped to fund the Summer Reading Program, and to buy shelves and display cases.





Native American flute music at Sunday Night Unplugged By Sally Neel Special to The PREVIEW

The ethereal sounds of the Native American flute will fill St. Patrick’s Episcopal Church this Sunday evening at 5 p.m. as local artist Charles Martinez offers his musical skills at Sunday Night Unplugged. Sunday Night Unplugged is a monthly meditation service offered to the public free of charge that combines music, readings, and silence to create a setting of beauty and serenity. St. Patrick’s, located at 225 S. Pagosa Blvd., welcomes all guests to come and enjoy this unique opportunity to meditate and enjoy beautiful musical offerings. Charles Martinez, a native of Pagosa Springs, is no stranger to those who have visited Chimney Rock for the full moon ceremonies. He brings the authentic sounds of the Native American spirituality to the ancient site, taking visitors back in time through the beauty of his haunting music. “The Native American flute is reminiscent of the sounds of nature,� says Fr. Doug Neel, rector

at St. Patrick’s. “Charles plays with sensitivity and grace, evoking the spirit of God and bringing to mind the traditions of Native Americans who continue to hold creation in such reverence. He inspires us to renew our own commitment to the beauty God has provided for our pleasure, our sustenance, and care.� Sunday Night Unplugged begins at 5 p.m. with quiet meditation and music. All are welcome to participate in this unique and beautiful service. “We have guests from every spiritual background and walk of life,� says Fr. Neel. “Many who attend are visitors to our town, others attend the service each month. We welcome everyone and hope they feel comfortable and at peace among us.�
