Friends Updates

Greetings Friends,

We recently received a grant from Friends of Kansas Libraries which will be used for the purchase of a wooden book cart for the library’s new Budding Bookworms program. The board also voted to give the library $250 for the Summer Reading program.

I hope you all have a great day. Our next board meeting is July 13th at 6:30 pm

Friends Meeting - May

Just a note to let everyone know about the Friends meeting this Thursday, May 11th at 6:30 pm.

We have a lot of updates and new and exciting things happening in the library that we want to tell you about.

If you have something you would like to discuss, please contact me so that I can add it to the agenda. I look forward to seeing everyone there!

Sheila Wells, Friends president


Book Sale Report

Greetings friends

The final totals are in and the deposit had been made. Our book sale brought in a total of $528! That is a great total considering that our sale was one day shorter due to the Good Friday holiday.

Our next meeting will be on May 11th at 6:30 pm at the library. This meeting will serve as our twice yearly general meeting. At the meeting we will be discussing donations to the summer reading program and Baby’s Bookshelf as well as some new changes and options available on our website. We do have a couple of board positions that are open and we would like to fill those at that time. The board meets on the second Thursday of odd numbered months, so it is not a large time commitment for anyone.

Thank you all for your support of the library through your commitment to the Friends of the Library. I hope to see many of you at the next meeting.

Have a great day!
Sheila


Book Sale

It is that time of year again, time for our Spring Book Sale. The dates are April 10-13. We will be ending the sale on Thursday due to the fact the library will be closed on Friday.

We will be accepting donated books in good condition beginning April 1st. Please do not bring books before that day. If you would like to help sort books and set up for the sale, we will be doing that from noon – 4pm on April 7th. Stop by anytime and stay as long as you can.

This year the Friends may shop the sale for first choice on Monday, April 10th from noon – 4 pm. This is by appointment (ask at the circulation desk) and your Friends membership must be current. If you need to renew your membership, stop by the circulation desk.


Pancake Day update

Due to the weather prediction of high winds on Tuesday afternoon, we will not be set up before the parade.

Please keep in mind that the Book Sale will be coming up in April and volunteers will be needed for set up and to work the sale as well.
