Norwalk Library would like to send out a special thank you to the more than 400 individuals who stopped into the library on Saturday, Oct. 13 for our Family Fun Day.
More than $890 was raised towards next year’s summer reading program. A special thank you goes out to all the volunteers who helped the day be such a success, especially the Norwalk Lions Club for coordinating the bingo game as well as serving the food and City State Bank for donating the hot dogs, chips and bottled water for the event. Thank you to the Friends of the Library: Jean Stansberry, Joan Joliffe, Andrea Johnson, Mary Bagley, Stephanie Brown, Terry Crane and Tom Dunn for volunteering at the different stations as well as helping with the set up.
Thank you to the following high school students for giving up a Saturday to help us out: Brad Adair, Logan Schwery, Cassie Brazelton, Arianna Davis, Kiley Fee, Cheynne Coyne-Waltz, and Katie Meincke. We appreciated all the help we got and look forward to hosting another Family Fun Day next fall.
Be a Friend
If you are interested in volunteering at the library, please feel free to join our Friends of the Library. They are the heart of our volunteers, and we truly appreciate them. We will be focusing our energy on setting goals for the next year and would love to see some new faces. Friends of the Library meets once a month at 5:30 p.m. in the library’s meeting room. Please direct all questions toward our new adult services program assistant, Mary Kay Johnson (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Finally we are excited to announce that we have begun the initial planning stages for next year’s summer reading program that will again have something for everyone in the community. Anyone, birth through adulthood, is welcome to sign up for the reading challenge and participate in our variety of activities. More information will be available later in the spring, but for now we will announce that the theme for summer 2013 will be “Dig into Reading” for children, “Beneath the Surface” for teens and “Ground Breaking Reads” for adults.
As always, please feel free to contact the library if you have any questions, comments or concerns.Norwalk Easter Library
