Greetings, Friends, and especially all you young people:
As summer winds down and we all prepare for autumn and winter, let us take time to reflect upon the success of our summer reading program. “One World Many Stories” ended with a pizza bowling party for those young people who finished all eight weeks of the reading program. They didn’t invite me, which is, I feel, rude, but I’m getting to an age where pizza doesn’t sit well and bowling isn’t really my game, so I guess it’s okay.
The winners of the grand prize drawing for the Summer Reading Program are: Lydia Johnson - $50 gift certificate from Alco; Carson Travis – Portable DVD Player; Rosalie Larsen – Ipod Shuffle. Congratulations, winners! Thank you everybody for participating. You are all winners!
Moving right along, school is starting. This can be really exciting for some and a downer for others. Let’s think about this a little. School is where your friends are. It is also someplace where you get to learn all sorts of cool stuff. Your library, Pine River Public Library, can help. Need reference materials? If we don’t have them on the shelves, we can get them for you. Need access to the internet for research? We have your computers. They are there for you. Missing anything? Make suggestions in writing and give them to your librarian. We are here because of YOU.
Have a wonderful year, everybody.
