THE LIBRARY NEEDS YOUR HELP!

Library heroWe are currently looking for the community’s input on some fresh fundraising ideas. Along with implementing some new ideas, our current library board members; along with our librarians; would also like some assistance in organizing and volunteering for any upcoming fundraising events. Ideally, we’d love for a group of friends to come together a few times per year and discuss these ideas and also assist in finding the volunteers needed to make the events happen.

Doing even just a couple annual fundraisers can have some pretty amazing results when a community such as ours pulls together! Money collected and earned from these events allows us to buy many new and wonderful things that can be used by anyone who stops by for a visit to our beautiful library.

In the past our board members and librarians, along with many caring volunteers, have had events like rummage sales, brat and bake sales at the Iola Sentry. We also were fortunate enough to participate in a chili cookout last Halloween at the Victorian House Tour! None of these events would have been possible with the community coming together and we are ever so grateful.

If you have any questions or suggestions, please stop by and see one of our friendly librarians or contact any of the following board members listed below.

We all thank you in advance for your assistance!

The greatest results can be achieved with minimal efforts when people with great minds and hearts come together!!

Library board members,

September book group

Tuesday, September 22, 2015 - 4:00pm - 5:00pm

Cover art for "Me Before You"Join Librarian Sue and the book group to discuss Me Before You, a novel by Jojo Moyes.

They had nothing in common until love gave them everything to lose . . .

Louisa Clark is an ordinary girl living an exceedingly ordinary life steady boyfriend, close family who has never been farther afield than their tiny village. She takes a badly needed job working for ex Master of the Universe Will Traynor, who is wheelchair bound after an accident. Will has always lived a huge life big deals, extreme sports, worldwide travel and now he s pretty sure he cannot live the way he is.

Will is acerbic, moody, bossy but Lou refuses to treat him with kid gloves, and soon his happiness means more to her than she expected. When she learns that Will has shocking plans of his own, she sets out to show him that life is still worth living.

"A Love Story" for this generation, "Me Before You" brings to life two people who couldn t have less in common a heartbreakingly romantic novel that asks, "What do you do when making the person you love happy also means breaking your own heart?"

The Scandinavia Public Library chooses a book monthly (except for December) to read and discuss as a group on the fourth Tuesday of the month at 4 p.m. Selections vary widely and readers are welcome to participate as frequently as they choose.
