The winner of the Fareway $100.00 gift certificate given away during our Pampered Chef Fundraiser is on-line shopper, Cassie Carlson from Marshalltown. We sold nearly $750 worth of Pampered Chef products and we received 15 percent of the sales in cash for our summer reading program. Thanks to all those who participated.
It's Summer Reading sign-up time. Stop in now to sign your kids up for a great time this summer. Any children that will be in Preschool through 12th this fall are invited to join us. Older kids are terrific volunteers too. Forms are available at the library. Children who will be in Preschool or Kindergarten this fall will attend on Thursdays and anyone who will be in 1st grade through 12th this fall will attend on Tuesdays. Call 484-4484 or stop by the library for full details.
The library is in need of egg cartons for a project we will be doing on June 18. Also, if anyone has any spare buttons, the ones with holes not shanks and green floral wire, we could use more of those items.
