Summer Reading Contest

5 May 2014

The summer reading contest is starting again. Kids can start bringing in their pages read at any time. You can count the pages you’ve been reading since the beginning of summer (the last day of school). I just need a parent’s signature with the pages read. There will be three categories: pre-K-2th, 3th-5th, and 6th-8th. If teenagers older than 8th grade are interesting in a reading contest, just let me know. The last day you can bring in pages read will be the 11th of July. I’ll announce the winners, give out prizes, and have water games for all ages to enjoy on the
15th of July at 1:00 p.m.

A big thank you.

The library would like to thank the Arthur Area Community Foundation for their generous donation of $1300. This money will go towards matching the funds required by the Gates Grant. This grant has made it possible to purchase two new computers for our library, one we have already acquired and other one will soon be purchased. These computers are wonderful assets to our library for the use of our patrons. We cannot thank the Arthur Area Community Foundation enough for helping us with this funding. Thank you!
