What a summer we have had at the library! Thanks to all who helped to make our summer reading a success! 97 students participated, with 24 reaching their 1,000 minute goal. June and July were busy with circulation- 1,866 books were checked out in these 2 months alone! We so appreciate the generosity of Lem’s and Salt Creek Cafe for donating ice cream coupons, and for Beth Miller for doing the art work for our “Summer Reading Critters”.
Thanks to a gift from the Seaman Family Foundation, our library will be sponsoring a Wonder Bus trip on Saturday, May 20. We’ll be visiting the Newark Earthworks and Dawes Arboretum, with a stop at the Velvet Ice Cream Company on the way home. Charge of $20/person includes all expenses for the bus and admissions. Details and registrations are available at the library, Weaver’s True Value Hardware, and Salt Creek Bakery. Space in limited- first come, first served. Hop on the bus and enjoy a fun day out!
Our year-long 25th Anniversary celebration continues! Author Conrad Storad visited in April. Second graders from Fredericksburg Elementary enjoyed their time at the library with Conrad, and each received a personalized signed copy of his book Gator Gator Second Grader. Homeschoolers also visited, each selecting a book to take home, signed by Conrad.
