Library News

During the month of December, 2005 all library fines can be paid for with non-perishable food. “Food for Fines” will then give all non-perishable foods to the Department of Family Services. If you have a library fine this is a good way to clear that up as well as help someone else in the community. If you also would like to make a food donation for the Department of Family Services you may also drop that by the library.

Winners of the “World of Books” bookmark contest are: Roxanne Fish – 1st Adult, Megan Miller – 1st High School; Taylor Johnson – 2nd High School; Jayde Swenson – 1st 7th Grade and Stephanie Redfield – 2nd 7th Grade. The winning bookmarks will be reproduced and available at the library.
