Read-A-Thon Fundraiser

The Library Kids are doing a fundraiser to by some chairs for the Library. We are doing a READ-A-THON during the month of July to raise the money.

The kids and I are going to read 100 Hours and we hope to raise $300.00. Kids will be going around the next 2 weeks to get sponsor’s.
Here are some samples of the kinds of chairs we are hoping to get. We will also be looking for some chairs for our Adult Section too.

Have you seen our ball — Week 4

Our Summer Reading Program has been going great. We have had an average of around 13 kids every Wednesday. Yesterday we learned about how much sugar is in our food. Pictures of the event coming soon.

And Our Ball has now been put into it’s spot for this week. Last week I only had a handful of kids/people find it!!! Remember that it will be in this location till next Wednesday night. Good luck.


Hula Hoop’in day at the Library

Our Summer Reading program is in full swing. This past Wednesday was our 2nd Summer Reading Event and we learned about the benefits of Hula Hooping. One minute of Hula Hooping burns 7 Calories and it helps work your core muscles. We also did an activity as a group where you send a hula hoop around a circle with out breaking hands. And the kids even did it with 2 hoops!!!

We had a few kids that tried to hoop 5 Hula Hoops at once. The world record is 105 hula hoops at the same time. They did pretty good. This next week we will be talking about bicycles.

Dear Crafter’s

Hello to all of my Crafter’s and Pintrest junkies. If you have been looking for old books to do crafts with then come in and see me. I’ve been working on doing some weeding and have come across several books that are ready to be upcycled. Currently I have a few saved back for things I would like to due here at the library, but we have several. Also I have the Re-purposing kit from NCKLS if you are wanting to do a craft but need ideas.

Wish me luck, I am trying to make some roses out of old book pages.
