The Summer Reading Challenge continues.  All ages may collect Reading Points through August 31st.  The winners of our drawings will be pulled at the September 1st Friends of the Library meeting.  Each 50 points gets you a chance to enter the drawing.  Children entering 5th Grade & under will receive a reading medal for their first 50 points.
Next week we’ll host the following programming opportunities:

Acrylic Painting will be offered on Friday, August 12 at 12:30 & 6:30 pm.  We’ll be following along with The Art Sherpa as she paints, “Sunset on Ocean”.  Stop by the library to register & receive a supply list.
A Library Story:  One day our library received a book returned express mail.  This book had been traveling with a community member and had been misplaced at the Minneapolis Airport.  A fellow library user spotted it and knew they had to help.  They made some phone calls and mailed the book back to us here in Mellen.  They sent it express mail so there would be no overdue charges incurred.  They didn’t know we do not charge for overdue materials here, just for unreturned or lost things.  Our community member was so happy they sent a “Thank-you!” plus a monetary gift.
Library people are awesome!
