Just Jensens A Woodwind Quartet

Date: 

Sunday, January 26, 2020 - 3:00pm
To event remaining 4 days

 

Come enjoy a concert by Just Jensens at 3:00 p.m. on January 26, who will perform an assortment of contemporary and classical music in arrangements customized for this unique group. Though the group hails from Coos Bay/North Bend area, their roots are in the Langlois area.

 

Three sisters grew up in Denmark, Oregon, and their sister-in-law (Judy Marsh Jensen) in Port Orford. The sisters, Judy Jensen Snyder, Peggy Jensen Christensen, and Bonnie Jensen Cox, were children of Charlie Jensen, originator of the Langlois and Port Orford band programs and instrumental music teacher for the 2CJ District for 12 years. Jensen and his wife, Wilma, established a music store in Port Orford in the 1960s that they later moved to the Pony Village Mall.

The four Jensen women formed their ensemble in 2006 and have performed in various venues over the years. All are members of the Bay Area Concert Band.

The Friends of the Langlois Library are pleased to offer this opportunity for the community to enjoy these musicians carrying on the legacy of Charlie Jensen.

The event is free, but donations will be appreciated.

Langlois LIbrary District Board Meetings. & other news

Date: 

Wednesday, January 8, 2020 - 6:30pm

The Langlois Library Board update:

We would like to keep the community informed of the upcoming changes in keeping with revitalizing the library. The most important item: please note that the regular board meeting date has been changed permanently to the 2rd Wednesday of each month at 6: 30 pm. The next meeting: January 8th.. Again we encourage the public to attend to hear how the library is progressing. Your input is invaluable. We alsos have appointed a new board member after several months of vacancy for position # 5- Deanna McDermott.

Library hours have increased to six days a week, Mon through Sat 11 am-5 pm. Two new enthusiastic employees have been hired: Lo Saechao & Annie Wilson. Denise Willms, library consultant, remains on site on Fridays and Saturdays and is available for phone consults otherwise.

The new web site is up and running and is worth a visit at https://langloispubliclibrary.org/. Besides access to Coastline Libraries Catalog, one can find profiles of the new board members, events and more. If you have any concerns, please use the web site for board member contact information.

We can be found on Facebook as well.

The library is again accepting donations of books for the Friends of the Langlois Library book sale on Saturday, Feb 29 9am- 4p at the Langlois Lions Club. The library is unable to accept stained, mildewed or otherwise damaged books. In addition, because the following do not sell and is costly to get rid of, the library will no longer accept Reader’s Digest magazines, any condensed books or encyclopedia sets.

The Just Jensens band is scheduled at the library from 3 pm to 4:30 on January 26th. This event, sponsored by the Friends of the Langlois Libary, is certain to be extremely enjoyable as the family continues with the founding father Charlie Jensen’s great musical legacy.

Finally, the board and staff of the library are looking forward to continuing to enhance services to our patrons and we will keep the community informed as we progress.

TEMPORARY LIBRARY CLOSURE!!!

To Patrons of the Langlois Public Library(LPL)

TEMPORARY LIBRARY CLOSURE

Effective September 5, 2019 the Library will be closed for a brief period to reorganize staffing, finances, and policies. During this hiatus patrons may still return books and DVDs to the LPL book drop and check out materials at any other Coastline library. We regret this inconvenience to our patrons.

The Library’s financial stability is the LPL Board’s top priority. The Library needs about $35,000 for our usual operations from July 1 through mid- November when property taxes come in. But this year on July 1 we had some large unanticipated expenses to deal with and only $27,000 available to spend. Today we no longer have enough money to continue business as usual. We will be exploring options for cost-cutting and for additional funding.

The public is invited to a

Special Meeting at the Library, Wednesday, September 18, 6:30 PM

for a status review, Q&A, and public input. We hope to re-open soon after.

Our thanks to the Curry County Library Network, and in particular the Port Orford Public Library, for their help and guidance during this period of reorganization.

The Board is seeking dedicated volunteer participation to be part of the Langlois Public Library family. Volunteers are needed: to assist staff with check-in, check-out and shelving; for lawn mowing and grounds care; for Library website and patron bulletin board upkeep. For information call 541-348-2021 or email volunteers.lpl@gmail.com .

The community of Langlois and all LPL patrons are needed to help plan, build, and maintain the future of our Library.

Susan Orbom, Chair, LPL Board
