CPLS Annual Week of Weeding

CPLS Annual Week of Weeding
August 5 – 11, 2018

It is time to clean up after the Summer Reading Program activities and to get ready for school to start.

I want to encourage everyone to participate by agreeing to weed a section of your library that you have been avoiding. You know what it is—that corner, that shelf, that genre of books that you have put off weeding for a while. Now’s the time! ALL libraries in CPLS are eligible to participate!

How to Participate:

1. Send me an email at denise.cpls@gmail.com to let me know that you want to participate.
2. If you need extra encouragement or help deciding what to weed, I will be glad to give advice and to lend a helping hand. Call or email to set up an appointment.
3. After you finish your weeding project, let me know how it went by filling in the form below.

Those who submit their forms to the CPLS Office by August 17th will be entered into a drawing for one of TWO Kindle Fire Tablets. The winning libraries will be selected in a random drawing on Monday, August 20, 2018.
