Also at the Saguache library on Friday, Apr. 28, Travis Garoutte and Kathy Hill with Mountain Valley School will present a program at the libarary starting at 6 p.m.  The discussion will focus on new programs, as well as safety issues with the current school buildings and the need for a new school. This will be the library’s final Friday program for the year. But summer fun is just around the corner, so stay tuned and connected on the Northern Saguache County Library District Facebook Page.

The Friends of the Library is looking for new and renewing members to join up. Memberships range anywhere from $5 for individuals, $10 for families, $25 for sustaining members, $50 for super friends,  and $100 for gold members.  Stop by the library and fill out a form; All donations are tax deductible. 

Memberships along with two bake sales, and three root beer float bar sales are the primary means for raising money for the library.  The donation’s received from book sales in the library, as well as the Hogs and Hot Air Community Meal and the Holiday Bazaar Christmas tree and paintings also help raise money.

With that money the Friends bought new computers, which are heavily used. In addition, they purchased some computer friendly chairs, books on CD, replaced the back door to the library and purchased new books.  With a decrease in tax revenue for the library they are hoping for more contributions during 2017 to use as matching funds for future projects.  Of course, the Friends of the Library will continue with their bake sales and root beer float bars throughout the summer.
