You have probably seen the cans in the Book Nook where the Friends collect labels for educational purposes from Campbells and other products related to them. Sometimes we are asked what we do with these labels. Our Library receives a catalog with a variety of items that can be “purchased” with the points we receive for our collected labels. The librarians let us know what they think would be useful in their programs. Right now we are hoping to obtain the following:
Butterfly Garden for 1,500 points
Jumbo Magnifiers for 2,250 points
Answer Buzzers for 1,700 points
Two Mighty Magnets for 1,300 points
Introductory Set of Cuisenaire Rods for 900 points
These materials total 7,650 points, which adds up to many, many labels! Our goal is to collect enough labels to obtain all of the items requested by the Library. With your help, we can make that goal. Please check the charts in the Book Nook to see which labels apply.
Look for the Friends tent at the Palos Heights Farmer’s Market on Wednesday, July 30th. We will have free books to give to adults and children, reminders about our upcoming book sale and possibly some other treats as well. We would love to talk to you and let you know all about the Friends group, in case you would like to join and help us help our wonderful Library! Come and see us any time during the morning on July 30th.
As you know, this small library has been placed near the flag pole at Lake Katherine. The Friends have taken on the job of checking donations for suitable materials and replenishing the little library as needed. Look for magazines, books and other information about the out-of-doors. Help yourself to any material that you might enjoy and feel free to add any materials about nature that you think others might like.
