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)


Summer Reading Donations

The Library Summer Reading Program is quickly approaching and thanks to a good book sale the Friends of the Library has donated $500 to hire a special children’s program performer and provide some program supplies.
