In case you missed the party on June 2, the library kicked off its Summer Reading Program with a bang! The Friends of the Library group was happy to help fund many of the activities which included a bounce house, dunk tank, food, face painting and a DJ.
You may be thinking, "It's great that the Friends group contributed to such a fun party, but what else do they do?"
Monday-Friday: 9 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Saturday: 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
The Friends of the Pea Ridge Community Library strives to promote and support the library. In the last few months, our group has been able to procure several things for the library, thanks to support of our fundraisers. We purchased a movie license, which has allowed several movie days at the library. We were also fortunate enough to be able to invest in new computers for the computer lab and currently we're helping the library fund the Summer Reading Program.
If helping to provide needed resources, classes and events for the community sounds like something you'd be interested in participating in, the Friends would love to have you. As a matter of fact, for the rest of the month of June we are having a Membership Drive. It's very easy to join our group. Just go to our Facebook page or pop in at the library and tell them you want to be a friend. One hundred percent of membership dues and money raised from fundraisers goes directly back to supporting the library.
You can't get better than that as a way to invest in your community. As a friend, you can be as involved or uninvolved as you want to be. The Friend's Board meets the first Tuesday of each month at the library at 6 p.m. where you are welcome to attend and help us find more ways to better the community. In addition to some nice bonuses, if you join at any friendship level in the month of June you will be entered into a drawing to win a $25 Amazon gift card.
Here's to making new friends!
