The Literary Department of the GFWC is holding it's annual basket fundraiser at the library. This year the basket themes include: Christmas, Toys, Tea, WVU, Pittsburgh Steelers, Romance, Chocolate, Italian, Garden and Kitchen. Each basket is stuffed full of interesting items that reflect the basket's theme. Tickets are $1 each or 6 tickets for $5. Proceeds benefit the library. Winners will be drawn in early to mid December. If you happen to be lucky enough to win a basket, make sure to bring someone strong when you come to pick it up. Some of these baskets are heavy!
Your Friendly Neighborhood Librarian
We are finishing our year of West Virginia Reads 150. Please turn in your reading logs to the Assistant Director by December 30th. The totals will be reported to the WV Library Commission, so that they can come up with a number of participants and books read for the whole state. Please make sure that you have your contact information on the sheet. Some of the emails that were listed on original registrations have bounced back. We are planning a celebration on January 11th at 1:00 for all of the team and individual participants.
