From the Director’s Desk…
A lot is going on at the library this summer!
Everyone here is ready for Summer Reading. There are programs and contest for children; an online book discussion for adults; and a great selection of books, new and old, to read while relaxing on vacation.
A lot is going on with the Library Foundation too. The plans for the new library are moving forward and we want to share them with you. Join us for our Community Read-In on Wednesday, July 30th at 6:00 p.m. at the site of the new library building. We will be setting up in the field across from the current library. See the new children, teen, and adult areas, as well as the large meeting rooms. Bring a blanket or chair(s) along with your current read and relax in the new library space. You are welcome to bring a picnic and to buy an ice cream from the Lions’ cart, too.
You can support our campaign for a new library by taking our Summer Challenge. We want to add 50 new donors each month this summer! Stop in the library or ask a Foundation Member for details. You can also help by attending the Barnes & Noble Bookfair on Sunday, July 26th in Marketfair Mall. A percentage of all purchases will go to the Foundation. Be sure to have our bookfair voucher handy when you pay for your purchases.
