The library would like to say thank you to Hochheim Prairie Farm Mutual Insurance Association for the generous gift to the library. We are so blessed to have supporters such as Hochheim. There are so many organizations where they could donate their money and this just proves that they believe in our library. Your librarian is smiling.
•We have received some new books and your librarian is having a hard time trying to decide which ones to read first. A good dilemma. Most of the books are older but new to the library.
Your librarian has removed many older books that no one had borrowed. We have them for sale and all proceeds will go to the new library building fund. Anyone is welcome to come by the library even if you don’t have a library card. Your librarian can issue you a new card and there is no cost.
•Texas Workforce Solutions will be here on Thursday from 1-4 p.m. If you or anyone you know needs help with employment issues, please come see the Texas Workforce Solutions representative.
•We here at the library are having a really fun time working on the Calendar Challenge. We have 48 different categories to read from and your librarian is excited to participate and read new books also. I won’t be a contestant, but it will be fun to take the challenge.
To participate you just need to have your updated library card and get a copy of our calendar poster and it tells you all the rules. This will be a challenge for the year, and we will give prizes at the end of the year at the Christmas Open House to all who finish the challenge. Come see your librarian for more details and join the fun.
•The library is on a mission to raise 1 million pennies. We are asking everyone to save pennies and give them to the library. The Groveton ISD school library is helping us to collect the pennies from the students. They have given our public library so much needed help. We are blessed to have such an awesome school library for our children.
Donation jars are at One Stop Grocery and Pizza, McClain’s Hardware and Susie Q’s. Please support these businesses because they support our town and your library. This week we deposited $70 into our new library building account. The total for our New Library Building Fund is $3,949.38. Thank you to everyone who is bringing pennies and dropping change into jars. It will take everyone saving pennies to reach our goal of 1 million pennies.
