The Friends have collected labels from Campbell’s products for many years, enabling the group to purchase small items for the Library, especially the Children’s Department, from time to time. Now the program has changed extensively, so the Friends will no longer be collecting these labels. To all of you who have saved labels over many years, the Friends say “Thanks so much! Your efforts are much appreciated.” Many schools will continue to collect the labels, so check with the elementary school in your neighborhood.
…at the Farmer’s Market on August 5th when the Friends will have more information about the book sale, some “freebies” and special activities for the children. Joan Meyer will do face painting from 8am to 10am and Joyce Eddy and Julie Pietrzak will share stories for the not-so-little ones on the half hour from 10:30am to 12:30pm.
If you can’t come out for the book sale, be sure to stop by the Book Nook (across from the main desk) where the Friends have materials for sale all year long. Choose your items (prices are posted on a sign in the Nook) and pay at the front desk. We will let you in on a little secret – Tuesday is the best day to shop because that is the day the Nook is replenished, usually by 10am.
For just a dollar you can purchase a sturdy, double-stitched bright blue book bag sold at the front desk of the Library. These bags are not only perfect for carrying your books and small electronics, they hold a lot of food at the grocery store or many packages when you are shopping. They make great little gifts, too. Buy yours soon – only $1.00.
