Fall brings our annual book sale on November 13th through November 22nd. It also brings new leadership to the library. Our Teen Council has decided to do a fundraiser for “Bucket Buddies” which is a 503(c) organization that donates buckets of goodies to children in the hospital. They have delivered over 5,445 buckets to children in hospitals in 21 states. Their goal is by 2020 to have delivered to all 50 states. Our teens are accepting monetary donations for this cause and will be donating time into this cause for their leadership project this fall. To help them with this leadership opportunity the library is hosting a “Fine Forgiveness” program where you can come in and donate half of your Tyson Library fines to bucket buddies and get the rest waived. This is only until November 30th that we are doing the fine forgiveness so please come in and donate to bucket buddies and help out our teen council.
Miss Donna is hosting a “Krafty Kids” program with some great crafts for children to complete. She will host this event on November 30th at 5:30 pm. She has been very successful in her programs and we can’t wait to see how great this one is!
We are also hosting a “Breakfast with Santa” program here at the library on December 16th at 10:30 am. Please sign your child up ahead of time in order to secure a gift from Santa for them. We will be more than willing to answer any questions that you may have.
For the adults we have a “Cookie and Canvas” painting program on December 2nd from 12pm-3pm. Sherry Biddle is hosting and she will show different techniques for painting.
We also have basic crochet classes starting in January 2018 and a photography class scheduled.
I am so thankful for the opportunity to have worked at Tyson Library. It has been my pleasure to get to know the staff and I wish Tyson Library all the best!
