At the Library

By Jo Weidner | Jul 19, 2013

Did I really see school supplies out in the stores this weekend? How can it be that we are halfway through summer?

It has been a busy, and successful summer at the library. Our summer reading programs for our young readers were well attended once again. We are grateful for all families who include summer reading at the library as part of their summer activities. We were very pleased with the entertainers we contracted with for our special events. It was a great mix of entertainment for the large audiences who attended.

We wouldn’t have been able to provide these fun family shows without the financial support from area businesses, local service clubs, and private donations. The library is fortunate to have so many friends, and supporters who financially contribute to help us continue to provide quality programs.

We are also fortunate to have a wonderful group of teenage volunteers who were there to help each week. Their dependability made it much easier for the group leaders to implement their program plans. They were great role models for the kids involved in summer reading.

Summer isn’t over at the library yet. We are continuing with adult summer reading programs, our All Iowa Reads book discussion, noontime concerts, and Monday movies.

So stop in to cool off, and be a part of all that is going on at your library.
