Annual Plant and Book Sale Coming Up!

Save the date: it’s time again for our Annual Plant and Book Sale! This is one of the library’s two big fundraisers for the year, and all money raised goes to this year’s summer reading program.

This year, we’ll have “personal shopping.” Fill out a form (online or on paper) with which categories of books you’d like and how many, and we’ll choose a selection of them for you ahead of time! Details to come.

Of course, we’ll also have a huge selection of books to browse for $0.25 each, DVDs, video games, and puzzles for $1 each, or a “fill a bag” option for $5, and plants! Garden fruits and veggies, annuals, perennials, succulents, and houseplants, all priced low and ready to go home with you or be gifted to someone special. AND delicious baked goods for sale! You will definitely not want to miss this big event at the library!!

Petting Zoo Animals Needed!

Easter is early this year, and we’re on the hunt for sweet farm babies for our petting zoo! The annual Easter weekend petting zoo will be Saturday, March 30 at 10:30 am (immediately following the Nortonville Easter Egg Hunt). Will you have baby chicks, goats, ducks, kittens, or other sweet animals that our community kids could visit with for an hour or so? We are happy to sign community service forms for your high schoolers or 4Hers if needed. Please contact us for details!

We Need Your Help!

We have started the year strong here at the library, with adult programs, Storytime, and weekly after school activities for the kids, and we’re gearing up for summer reading as well! All of that means that we could use your help with supplies. We go through a lot them, and as a nonprofit in a small town, our budget gets stretched to the max!

We do have an Amazon wish list that we regularly update with specific supplies and things that we use often throughout the year, and it also includes a few items for summer reading prizes and snacks for our after-school crowd. If you’re so inclined, we would love for you to check it out and see if you can find something to order for us. Of course, we also always greatly appreciate monetary donations, and any little bit helps!
