Your librarian wants to send a big thank you to the 5th grade BETA Club from Groveton ISD. There were 11 children and two teachers who came to help get some books in order on the shelf. These particular books are for children and your librarian was having an issue with their arrangement order on the shelf. The children were such a help. I need more volunteers like this group and welcome anyone who wants to volunteer.
•The Republican Ladies of Trinity County are having a card-making class at the library. This is an opportunity to make cards and donate to the library. If your group would like to have a card-making party, then just call and your librarian will set up a time for that to happen. We have greeting cards for sale at the library for a fundraiser. The cost is $1 per card. Please remember this when you need cards and support your library. We will have Father’s Day Cards for sale coming in the future.
•Our Children’s Summer Reading Program will be starting soon. Your librarian is very excited to see how much our program grows from last year. Our theme will be “Bee Kind.”
