Summer Reading Program Ends

On the final day of the SRP we had a water party and picnic. The kids loved getting wet in the water relay and water balloon toss! They also liked getting our teen volunteers wet whenever they got the chance!! We have been putting goldfish crackers into a goldfish bowl throughout the program - one for each 15 minutes of reading - and the kids all guessed how many crackers total to win a prize. There were 1116 crackers total! All the kids really read up a storm and turned their logs in each week. And, thanks to our generous supporters, the Libri Foundation, Cow Creek Umpqua Indian Foundation, Chambers Family Foundation, and the Lane Library League we were able to offer many new titles to both the little ones and the young adults. Congratulations to everyone who attended the program.

Book Sale Continues

Many thanks go out to everyone who attended our book sale on July 25! Lots of books and other materials found good homes, but we still have many, many selections. The book sale will continue, during open hours, throughout September (depending upon weather) and new items are being added to the continually so stop by and check it out!
