November Happenings at the Library

Posted November 07, 2012 in Community Blogs, Grimes

Ah… the sigh of peace, the telephone hopefully will stop ringing off the hook.  On Saturday, we cleared our messages (which were full), were out the door to do a few errands, visit the folks in the nursing home.  Came back 3 hours later to 38 messages on our phone!  All were political.  It seems there should be some kind of protection against obnoxious unwanted calls.  The funny thing is, we voted early!

We were an early voting site this year for the first time ever and will strengthen our request to remain an early voting station.  It was quite nice and for the one day, we loved seeing the people in to cast their vote.

Next week (Wednesday, November 14) there is a DC-G early dismissal.  Bring the kids to the library to watch the movie “Brave” (PG) with their friends!

Bingo for 18 and over, 2:00 to 4:00pm on Thursday, November 15.  FREE and lots of fun.

The next Saturday, there is a LEGO contest here at the library.  The theme is “Wheels”.  This will be taking place at 1:00pm, it does require registration as this is popular and we do have to worry about the number of bodies occupying space now!  You may register via phone, so give us a call as soon as you decide to participate!  515.986.3551.  We can spread out quite a bit, so do not be dismayed.  It is a little bit of a ‘plug’ to help support our building fundraisers.

Speaking of fundraisers, since we are not yet into our Capital Campaign (just finishing up our feasibility study), we are running some fun fundraisers, gaining bits of change as we go.  Our coin campaign that is finishing up from October is to vote for your favorite cartoon character!  Right now the vote is:

Yogi Bear: $9.55

Snoopy: $8.81

Kermit: $6.28

Big Bird: $3.77 and

Mighty Mouse: $.83

Oh, how the ‘mighty’ have fallen!

Stop by to cast your vote for your favorite character and support our building addition!
