Archive for April, 2012
Wow, does time fly, the weather has been beautiful with a little rain mixed in. How could we ask for more?
April was a busy month at our Library, it was National Library week the 9th through the 13th. We were so lucky to have the Elementary kids come tour our Library, what fun! A huge thanks to all the teachers, aides, bus driver & especially Mrs. Cathy Barger who helped make the day go so smoothly. We ended up having around 161 kids that day. Big smiles everywhere, what a great bunch.
April also saw Child Abuse Prevention week, we supported the cause by having some of the kids make pinwheels & display them for our community to see & handed out flyers for even more supoort.
Headstart has been using our Library this month of April also helping familie all over.
We will also be increasing our fines the first of May to help support our Library & bring new books in for the children. For Books, Magazines & Audio Books we will be charging .10 cents a day. For our DVD’s the fine will increase to .25 cents a day. We still feel this is more than fair & are still so looking forward to seeing you all.
On March30th, I attended a library conference in Arapahoe to receive new ideas for crafts & books for our younger patrons. I met with many different librarians from around the local area, who shared their ideas and experiences during this time. It was a fun, productive day!
On the other hand, we will be busy with upcoming events in the month of April. April 7th-14th is National Library Week; which we will be celebrating by having pre-school through 6th grade come and tour our library to see our new selection of books and receive treats. We will also be participating in the City Wide Garage Sale which will be held on April 28th. At this time, we will be selling a wide variety of magazines dated from 1940s’ – present and a large selection of books to raise money for our library.
