Friends of the Library Auction Update
Once again, we report that the auction and luncheon were great successes! Over $5,200 were raised from the auction and the freewill offering luncheon. 240 ticket holders bid on 531 items. Thanks go to the Delta Eagles and Auxiliary who sponsored the turkey sandwiches with their monetary donation, to those who roasted the turkeys and prepared the meat for the sandwiches, to all those who donated salads and desserts, as well as those who carted all the baskets to the Legion for setup, and to everyone who bought tickets! The Friends group and the library staff appreciate all the help that they received in preparing for the fundraising event. Special gratitude goes to Sue and Jim Stoll, Siobahn Beavers, Martin and Marilyn Roth, the Delta American Legion, and everyone who attended. Mark your calendars for next year’s event on November 17, 2016!
All tweens and teens in grades 5-12 are invited to join in the fun activities on December 16 at 3:30 p.m. This is a celebration that you do not want to miss!
Children, call the library at 419-822-5200 to listen to some special Christmas stories this month.
December 21: Night Before Christmas – Clement Clark Moore’s delightful poem
December 28: Nursery Rhymes – Mother Goose presents her favorite rhymes
Children of all ages are invited to join us on Thursday, December 17 at 3:45 p.m. for some holiday bingo. If you know your numbers – you can play! We’ll be using special Christmas-themed cards, and red and green candies for markers. The winners must shout, ‘Merry Christmas’ instead of ‘Bingo’. Don’t forget to bring your Christmas lists, as Santa will be stopping by to say hello on his way back to the North Pole. Parents are welcome to bring cameras to take pictures of their children on Santa’s knee. Santa will arrive around 4:30 for those who don’t want to play bingo.
Children in preschool through fourth grade can get into the Christmas spirit by entering our Christmas contest. You will be asked to circle the tree that Ethan has just decorated by reading a set of clues. The first correct answer drawn from the container will win a special prize. All entries will receive a sweet treat!
We will take a winter break until storytime begins again on Tuesday, January 5, 2016.
There will be no Card Class for the month of December. The next class will be January 23, 2016, from 10:00 till noon in the library activity room.
