We took in $130. Thank you to everyone who assisted on Kick Off night, book sale set up, cashiers, and sorted and boxed up left-over books. We had many local folks who had not visited before stop by to browse through the librarY and Event Center. We had many people - especially children - stop by for a library card. We even promoted our fine facilities to local lake folks who also showed a real interest in our library and signed up for library cards. They were thrilled that we are open Saturdays, and we may have a few new volunteers. The Summer Reading Pro- gram is an absolute "HIT".
