The Brazil Public Library had a free home-made ice cream social Saturday afternoon on the library grounds. Entertainment was provided by the Sycamore Strummers, who played banjos and harmonica and sang old pop and folk songs.
It was evident that the crowd of more 70 enjoyed the gift from the library. There were many smiles and "mmm, mmm" comments from the ice cream eaters. Some in the audience sang along or tapped their fingers to the beat of the mostly up-beat, lively music.
The library scheduled the event as part of their 100 year Celebration. Library Board secretary Peggy Blair said there is one more event to complete the six-month celebration.
"We'll have a bean dinner here at the Library from 1-3 p.m. on Sept. 27th," Blair said. "That will be the culmination of the 100 Year Celebration of the Brazil Public Library."
