Summer Story Hour Fundraiser

Help us meet our goal of at least $1000 to help fund Summer Story Hour 2021.

We need your help! The John Rogers Memorial Library is offering a     summer library program to the children of our community to encourage them to read for pleasure during the summer and to retain their reading skills. This year’s theme is Tails and Tales. All About ANIMALS!

To add to the fun and to create a sense of challenge that will keep kids reading, we’d like to offer presenters, incentives, and contest prizes at various times during the summer. Because of our limited budget, we cannot afford to offer this without help.

We appreciate any donation you care to make.  We will mention the assistance you have generously donated in our publicity.

If you can help us in any way, please click on the link below to be transferred to our PayPal donation site:
