We received a grant to get some new furniture from NCKLS. Soon we will have 2 new chairs in the adult section, a bench back in the youth/young adult section. And today we received our bean bag chairs for the children’s section. We have also purchased a projector and screen and are planning on having movie nights.
If you haven’t been in the library for a while, a lot has changed. Currently I am working on making a digital catalog of our books, and some painting will be happening in the children’s section soon. Also planning a craft day to get some help, I am re-purposing bricks to use them as book ends. Currently I have 2 done and have over 130 plus more to go.
As of August 1st, I have been the library director for a year and I am very proud of the work that I have been able to get done to better serve our community.

Our Summer Reading Program has come to an end for this year. We had a wonderful turn out with an average of 12 kids at each event. Over the summer the kids learned the importance of staying active, ways to stay active, several different Olympic Sports, and how much sugar is in the foods we consume. We did actives with Hula Hoops, Jump Ropes, Sugar Cubes (they are 4grams of sugar), did some Ninja Training, and had us a lazy day.
I hope that the kids had as much fun as I did this summer and learned some things too. Can’t wait till next year.
- The Current World Record for the most Hula Hoops twirled at one time is 105 Hoops
- Hula Hooping works 30 Core Muscles.
- In 1822: American’s consumed 45 grams (11.25 sugar cubes) of sugar every 5 days. This is the same as a can of Coke.
In 2012: American’s consumed 756 grams (189 sugar cubes) of sugar every 5 days. And they makes about 130 POUND a year.
- Jump Roping for 15 minutes can burn 200 calories
- 10 minutes of jumping rope is equal to 30 minutes of Running at 5.7mph
- Ninja’s were spy’s or assassins that were believe to have lived in Japan in the 14th Century.
Our ball is in it’s newest location. Remember when you find it you can come in and get a treat at the Library.
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.
