Summer programs are a success

Learn with us. During the month of September, we are offering a free Basic Computer Class on Thursday evenings. If you can’t take advantage of a day class, we will offer this night class. Limited seating is available so you must pre-register. Please call 903.856.3302 to sign up now.

Thanks to our sponsors, friends, and you (yes, you!), our summer programs were awesome this year. Thirteen programs were provided to the public, 300 pounds of food were collected for local food pantries through our program attendance and "Food for Fines" initiative, and 65 sets of school supplies were given away. We offer a very special thank you to the Friends of the Library and Jeannie Campbell, our Story Lady for their support this summer. Pittsburg continues to be the most kindhearted and giving community. We do not do this alone, but with an abundance of help and helpers.

The 4th annual Friends of the Library 5K Fun Run Walk or Crawl will be September 17, 2011 at City Park on Texas Street. Call 903.856.3302 for details or swing by the website at http://www.pittsburglibrary.org for more information.
