Book Sale schedule and Friends Month

Greeting Friends of the Library,

Here are some things to be aware of in the month of October.

Our Fall Book Sale will be October 14-19.

As always, Monday the 14th is the opening reception for the Friends from 6-8 pm. If one or two of you would be willing to provide 3 dozen cookies it would really be appreciated.

In addition, we will need volunteers to staff the sale as much as possible to take some of the burden off the library staff. Let me know what hours and days work best for you. Even one hour helps a lot.

In response to public request we will open the book sale on Saturday from 11-2.

Finally, October is National Friends of the Library month. In celebration we will have a “Recommended Reads” display in the library. If you have a favorite book(s) you would like to recommend please email me with the titles within the next week. Make sure the titles you recommend ones that our library owns.

Thank you for serving the Friends of the Library

July Meeting Cancelled

Hello everyone,

 With the busyness of summer and the fact that we have no  business to discuss, I am cancelling the July board meeting.

We will meet again on September 12th where we will discuss the next book sale and get a report on the Summer Reading program.

Have a great remainder of the summer.


Summer Reading Program update

We have an updated list of items needed for Summer Reading craft projects.  If you can provide any of the items it would be greatly appreciated. The list is below.

Supply list:

  • Marbles
  • Round plastic lids
  • Cereal Boxes
  • Small plastic water bottles (empty of course)
  • Spray paint
  • Aquarium rocks or gravel or other small stones

Also, I gave incorrect information regarding the Freddy’s Fun Night volunteer opportunity.

Freddy’s Fund Night will be on the first TUESDAY of each month from 5-8 pm at Freddy’s.

Don’t forget we have Summer Reading Kick-off party from 2-4pm on Monday. Volunteers are still needed for that as well. Please contact the library if you can help out.

Have a good weekend,

Summer Reading Kick-Off

Hello Friends,

The library is in need of volunteers for this coming Monday afternoon as well as the first Monday of each month at Freddy’s. Freddy’s has been VERY generous to the library with support and prize donations. It would be nice if we could support the library in returning the favor. If you can help at the kick-off party please plan to be at the library by 1:30pm

The details of the needs are below. Also, Sarah, our teen librarian, still needs some donations..

Monday June 3rd is our summer reading program kick off party. We will be in need of some volunteers to help us make sure everything is running smoothly. It will be going from 2 – 4 pm.

The following day we are helping out Freddy’s with their monthly kids night for the first time and will also need some volunteer help at this event. June 4th from 5 – 8 pm. The help at both events will be similar. Supervising kids during the games and activities, assisting with refreshments, assisting librarians with summer reading information.

  • Round plastic lids (sour cream, yogurt, margarine, etc)
  • Marbles
  • Spray paint (doesn’t need to be full cans, just what you might have in the garage)
  • Embroidery needles ( about a dozen)
