His agent, Kingsley Colton, said Monday his longtime client was 87 when he died Sunday of heart failure at Hospital of the Good Samaritan in Los Angeles.

The unmistakable, grainy voice of Sterling Holloway lopes along at a slow gait, still carrying just a trace of the veteran character actor's Georgia roots. The face, even now, is dominated by those bulging eyes, too-large lips and a crazy tangle of red-orange hair. At 81, Holloway is living in quiet semi-retirement in Hollywood.

While moonlighting from his career as one of Hollywood's best-known character actors, Sterling Holloway amassed a noteworthy collection of contemporary art. Failing health now forces Holloway to sell his collection and it is being parceled out piecemeal. (The collection is at the Asher/Faure Gallery, 612 N. Almont Drive, to Sept. 13). A number of these works are of museum quality and it's unfortunate that they're soon to disappear yet again into private collections.

Hal Smith, who played the chunky, cheerful, affable inebriate Otis Campbell in Andy Griffith's mythical hometown of Mayberry, N.C., has died, apparently of a heart attack. He was 77. Don Pitts, his longtime agent, said the TV, film and radio veteran died at his Santa Monica home Jan. 28 while listening to a nightly drama hour on radio. Known nationally for his face and staggering presence on "The Andy Griffith Show" in the 1960s, Smith also had a hidden career with his voice.

The library I loitered in as a kid was dark, musty, quiet and of course the repository of mysteries and magic waiting to be discovered.

Often sponsored and funded by Friends of the Library, reading and storytelling programs, concerts, lectures, films, art exhibits and historical observances are continuing events.
