WEST POINT: The branch will have another children's party on July 15th with a Pirates & Princesses theme.
The Annual Giant Book Sale raised $1900! Arnold FOTL are preparing for the Independence Day Parade, July 1st. Community seminars will also begin in July.
Our members have completed over 100 hours of collecting books and giving our porch a needed face lift. During the work in the hot weather volunteers were helped by friends who supplied us with refreshing watermelon and cool drinks. Job well done! Thank you to all who helped with the project.

With Summer Reading this year, we’re going to try something called Library Bingo. This can be played both with children and adults, and in English and Espanol. On the Bingo cards are various activities to do, and when you do 5 in a row you get a prize. The fun will start June 7th, after school gets out.
The board held a potluck dinner to celebrate outgoing President, Pam Shoemaker. They gathered more than 100 community surveys and are currently tabulating results. Summer Reading BINGO for kids, teens, and adults is happening until September 1st. There is a summer calendar for Tuesday Storytime with different themes and fun activities.
They had Dale Lorzo present his 'Reading is Magic' program for kindergarten-1st grade and will do another in Jenny Lind, and additional grade levels next school year. The branch used a $250 First 5 grant for musical instruments. They will hire a man to do a presentation on bullying at elementary schools and give a book to each child on the subject. Two bicycles were donated to the library, and they are selling tickets (6 for $5) to raffle them at the Christmas Parade; funds will be used to buy new books.
