The West Point/Clay County Arts Council is giving 2013 a classy jump start.
The first Noontime Music at the Library will be held on Wednesday, and it will feature classically trained pianist Justin Estes, who will play tunes throughout the lunch hour.
Attendees are asked to bring a lunch, and the Arts Council will provide desserts and drinks.
This relaxing hour of music will be done in partnership with the Bryan Public Library, and it will be held in the Ester Pippen room.
Estes will be entertaining guests on the grand piano donated by Music Coterie.

The Pilot Club of West Point met Tuesday night to discuss ad and ticket sales for the upcoming Legends event scheduled for March 2. This years theme is â€śOne Hit Wondersâ€ť and the venue is changing from The Civic to the Community Counseling Services Auditorium, formerly the gymnasium on the Mary Holmes College campus. The pilots are hoping for a large turnout from the community for the night of fun, music and entertainment.
I was born a skeptic. The weather man says it will snow and I scoff because frankly, it typically only snows when there has been no mention of it in the forecast.
The guy from the â€śGuvmentâ€ť says heâ€™s here to help and I let out a unladylike hoot, because we all know thatâ€™s unlikely.
But on the road to skepticism Iâ€™ve had to pass through the valley ofgullibility which materializes when I hear about something healthy that is also fun and tasty.

The Town Creek Square Apartment complex has been a thorn in the side of West Point law enforcement for some time.
In early August, West Point Police Chief Tim Brinkley called upon management at the complex to get unruly tenants and their guests under control.
While many of the immediate problems have been addressed, the systemic problems, which affect the youth of the community, still persist.
