I cannot say it enough. Pittsburg is a community of helpful people. Our call to action for story time programs brought in some great ideas, with people attached. It is going to be a wonderful summer for our community.
We have one more call to action. Anyone who can donate small prizes, bottled water, school supplies, restaurant coupons, etc. would be appreciated. One of our story time ideas is to create a small version of the state fair, complete with games. Since money is tight this year for everyone, we thought of giving school supplies as some of the prizes. You do not have to donate a specific number of any of the items, just whatever you can do to help the kids have a great summer and prepare them for the next school year. Please call the library at 903.856.3302 if you are able to donate prizes or refreshments for the summer programs.
We would like to offer the community the opportunity to help local food banks this year. We will offer a drawing for a prize during each of the summer programs. Those attending will receive one entry in the drawing. For each non-perishable item that is donated, there will be an additional entry in the drawing. Our first program is Friday, June 19th at 11:00 a.m.
For the months of June and July, we would like to offer our patrons a way to pay their fines by helping others. For each non-perishable item that is donated, we remove 50 cents from your fine owed to the library. This helps you pay down your fine and help others in the process. We think that is a win-win situation.
If you are a church or other institution in Camp County that provides a food bank for the community, please bring a letter stating that you provide this service, so that we can distribute these items to your organization.
