Those of you who are keeping track of your reading for the Summer Reading and Teen Read programs, your reading logs are due on Saturday. Bailey the dog will be here to listen to young readers that day for ten minutes each from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. in the library classroom.
The library is very appreciative of memorial donations. We use the money to purchase new library materials, putting a sticker on each one with the name of the person being remembered. It is a gift that keeps on giving, as many people enjoy the items purchased over the years. Thank you to those who donated so far this year in memory of Lee Berquist, Frank Buckley, George Frodesen, and Mabel Larson. We also appreciate those who donate to the Victoria Gotsky Trachtenberg Reading fund, and to our endowment funds. We also use library fines to purchase new materials, so thank-you to those who donate to the library in this way. When you put money in the Friends of the Library box for used books, you become part of the $12,000 gift the Friends give us for materials.
The Friends of the Library will meet on Monday, August 23 at 10:30 a.m. in the library classroom. Come be a part of this important library support group as we plan programs and activities for fall.
