Summer Reading Program 2013 is a wrap. July was chock full of programs and special events and families enjoying the library. For the month we checked out over 7700 items and hosted about 660 people at library-sponsored programs.
August 10-11 is the Green Lake Fine Art Fair, and the Friends Summer Book Sale. Hours for the Book Sale are 8:00-4:00 Saturday and 10:00-4:00 Sunday. These book sales are the Friends’ major fundraisers every year, and we are so grateful for their financial support of library programs and materials (to the tune of roughly $8000 annually, year in and year out). That’s one reason why the book sales always get a mention in these newspaper columns. Plus the sales are fun and you can always find amazing bargains. We have very good Friends, indeed.
Deke Palacek is not only the owner of Saving Grace Salvage Company in Berlin, she’s also our amazing August Artist of the Month. See her oil portraits and still life paintings on display in the large meeting room all month long.
