Charlotte Butler was a friend and supporter of the Olive Warner Library. She was in on the training meetings about how to prepare a town History Book. She supported the library in so many ways. Thank You Charlotte, and your family. Our thanks too for the folks who send a memorial gift in her name to build our library fund. We know Charlotte is smiling. Miss you, friend...
AUTHOR and PHOTOGRAPHER SAMUEL HALL visited the Library Monday May 11 at 7 pm to tell about his book; "Daughter of the Cimarron". Sam writes....
The Dust Bowl provided the soil from which my life took root after the Great Depression. I saw, heard about, and lived with those who came out of that calamity. Small wonder that it affected me, too. I looked at those lives and considered that many would deserve the title of hero for their grit, faith, and gut-wrenching toughness. Their profiles stand out in sharp relief against the society I see around me.
Upon graduation from Oklahoma State University, I served in the Army Special Forces, an interesting time with interesting people. Afterward, my work and various ministry opportunities took me to more than thirty countries—from the Arctic to Africa. Always, the magic of the written word beckoned to express new ways of portraying relationships and places I visited and worked. Over the last two decades I’ve been able to follow my passion of writing and photography.
To connect between our culture and that from which I came, my first novel is about a couple who came out of the Depression era. It’s their story, yet I find myself in it, as well. My essays and articles have appeared in anthologies, Christian publications, and on-line. As Oregon Christian Writers photographer, I’ve had opportunity to work with many writers. My photography has been featured in a variety of articles, and in a children’s picture book, Jesus Loves Us All. I am an active member of OCW and Willamette Writers.

Who is behind the door of "ROOM 205"?
"The patient lay motionless, eyes closed, unable to move, and in such agony that he prayed for death. His prayer was not anwered." Seems God had other plans for the patient in Room 205. Get your copy of this biographical book of one of Hooker, Oklahoma's own.
Dr. Harold D. Davidson roamed this area on his pony, threatening 'mock' stick ups with his toy guns, and then like other youths here, loved to play basketball, ride his bike, and was in FFA. His parents ran the local newspaper. When life dealt him an illness named Guillan Barre' lesser folks might have checked out right there.
Copies of this book are available at the library $20.00 for hardcover, $15.00 for paperback. Dr. Davidson has autographed these, and the money goes to our library fund.
