Friends of the Library meet
June 6, 2018
The Friends of the Library met on May 17 in the library’s meeting room. After a quick review of the March meeting which featured Sandra Larson presenting an instructional power point about the “Montana To-Go Library” and downloading audible books to I-phones, tablets and I-pads. Darlene began to explain her ideas and plans for her summer reading programs. She will have 2 separate age groups for young readers, as well as an adult reading program. Her theme is “Libraries Rock.” Beginning June 12, Darlene has 8 weeks of reading, crafts, games and fun planned for all ages, culminating with a party and prizes on August 2.
Many neat prizes available include beautiful cloth back packs made by Judy (Bissell) Hawkins [Class of ‘66], gift cards and baskets of all kinds of neat things donated by many businesses, organizations, and individuals around town. Stop at the library to get your list of what each week’s goal is and START READING!
Darlene is holding a Book Sale/Food Drive at the library through June 8. In order to help our local Food Bank and clear out many great books that we have doubles of, Darlene is asking people to bring in non-perishable food items and take home a bag of free books. A Win-Win for everyone! Handicapped accessible doors will soon be installed at both the front door and foyer door, and more bookcases are coming. Darlene was complimented on how nice the library looks, particularly the foyer tree which is now decorated with US flags and patriotic garlands. Other topics were discussed, but the Book Sale/Food Drive and the All Ages Summer Reading Program were the most important. Now that school is out, and nice weather is here, make the library one of your stops. As Dr. Seuss says, “Oh, the places you’ll go” when you read!
