Thank you, Nicki Lazorik!

It is with great gratitude and appreciation of the Friends of the Library that Nicki Lazorik served as our Bellringer Run Race Director since 2019.  She has worked diligently to document her work.  She has done this to help the next race director in getting a jumpstart.  Nicki has the ‘Bellringer in a box’ and she is ready to pass the torch.  It is with regret that we have accepted her resignation.  If you are interested in this volunteer position, please contact Friends President, Kay Reader, or leave a message at the Library.  Thank you for considering taking on this responsibility.  This is not only a fundraiser for the Friends of the Library, but an annual community event during our 4th of July Hometown Celebration.

The Friends of the Library are sponsoring the Summer Reading Challenge.  There are four age brackets in the Challenge.  The person in each bracket with the most reading points will receive a $50 Barnes & Noble Gift Card.  There’s a second opportunity to win through a drawing.  For each 25 reading points earned, your name is entered in the drawing. Children may also collect Reading Patches.  25 reading points = a patch.  This is a year-round program and so is the 1000 Books Before Kindergarten.  Start any time.  Find out more by asking at the library.
