Summer Reading Fundraisers Happening Now!

We have a couple of quick fundraising activities for our summer reading program this year! We have big plans for the Adventure-themed activities that we’re packing into June and July, but we could use a little help to make it all happen! There are two easy ways to contribute to the summer fun.

First, to go along with our special summer reading Amazon wish list, we’ve put up a Giving Tree in the library. Each leaf on it has a dollar amount and item for something that we need for summer reading activities and prizes. You can pull a leaf and either just donate the money for us to purchase the item(s) or order it directly from the wish list to be sent to us! We also have a few leaves for the partial sponsorship of a grand prize basket that we will put together.

We’re also hosting a special craft night fundraiser with TWO project choices (wooden sign wall decor OR summer wreaths with mesh, ribbon or flowers) and snacks and drinks provided! We’re just asking for a $5 donation that will go straight into supplies and prizes for our “Adventure Begins at the Library” summer reading program this year.

RSVP is required You can do so by going to the Facebook event or by contacting us.

*NEW* Spring Book Sale Personal Shopping

This year, we’d like to be your personal shoppers for the annual book sale on April 27th! Fill out a form to tell us what kinds of books or DVDs you’d like to purchase, and the library staff will hand select them for you. Whether you can’t make it to the sale on April 27, don’t have a lot of time to browse the hundreds of books in the sale, or just like the element of surprise, we’re here for you!

Orders can be picked up the week before the sale during open hours (please give us 24 hours to put your order together) or during the book and plant sale. Payment is due when your order is picked up ($2.50 for each set of 10 books or $10 for 10 DVDs).

Click this link to be taken to the google form. We’ll also have paper copies at the library.

Annual Plant and Book Sale Coming Up!

Save the date: it’s time again for our Annual Plant and Book Sale! This is one of the library’s two big fundraisers for the year, and all money raised goes to this year’s summer reading program.

This year, we’ll have “personal shopping.” Fill out a form (online or on paper) with which categories of books you’d like and how many, and we’ll choose a selection of them for you ahead of time! Details to come.

Of course, we’ll also have a huge selection of books to browse for $0.25 each, DVDs, video games, and puzzles for $1 each, or a “fill a bag” option for $5, and plants! Garden fruits and veggies, annuals, perennials, succulents, and houseplants, all priced low and ready to go home with you or be gifted to someone special. And, if you have more of a black thumb than green, we’ll have crocheted plants as well….MUCH harder to kill those. You will definitely not want to miss this big event at the library!!
