H.B. Stamps Memorial Library held a Banana Split party in celebration of Rogersville in Bloom on Thursday, April 21st. We all enjoyed a terrific time, and we look forward to all of the other fun events going on this month to celebrate spring in this wonderful town. Thank you very much to all of our friendly donors whose generous contributions contributed greatly towards citizens enjoying a free banana split and friendly chatting on your library lawn. Several members of the Hawkins County Library Board, the Director, staff, volunteers, and patrons also generously gave of their time to serve citizens banana splits with a smile.  From all of us who enjoyed such a fun, delicious time at this event, thank you very much to everyone who contributed!
