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.

Petting Zoo Animals Needed!

Easter is early this year, and we’re on the hunt for sweet farm babies for our petting zoo! The annual Easter weekend petting zoo will be Saturday, March 30 at 10:30 am (immediately following the Nortonville Easter Egg Hunt). Will you have baby chicks, goats, ducks, kittens, or other sweet animals that our community kids could visit with for an hour or so? We are happy to sign community service forms for your high schoolers or 4Hers if needed. Please contact us for details!
