AND THE WINNER IS***JONATHAN LLOYD from Lewiston. Jonathan is now the proud owner of the Savage 22 rifle that was donated by Stacie and Gary Milliman as a means to raise funds for purchasing new children's books for the library.
A great big prairie Thank You to Stacie and Gary for their generosity and participation in this event and to the others who so generously donated items.
The rifle was a popular item and the desire to own by many who stopped by the booth to take a chance and purchase a ticket. For you who were not there when the ticket was drawn, you would have enjoyed the moment by the true excitement and pleasure displayed by the young winner. While visiting with him it was learned the only gun he had ever owned was a BB gun with the desire to someday own a 22 rifle. He also shared that he was soon to become a Father. What a nice young man. It was a pleasure to award this prize to him. Even if your name was not drawn, you are all winners to us. The Library Board Members thank all of you who supported the Library by purchasing tickets, and those of you who sold tickets, both individuals and businesses. Congratulations to Lloyd as the Grand prize winner and to the following people who received additional prizes.

During the period from 1995 through 1999 there were several interviews throughout the area conducted by grade school children as a school assignment. These were put into book form with the student and participant being interviewed receiving a copy. The school also retained a copy. During the recent transition of the middle school their copies were brought to the Library. Due to lack of space they will be returned to the people involved. They will be on display upstairs in the Community Hall for a week or two and then perhaps taken to the Senior meal site. If you have an interest in any of these books, please claim them.
We are very appreciative of the Memorial Contributions the library has received, some being committed for eBook programs that we hope will be available soon. If you are interested in such a program please share your thoughts with us. Memorial cards are available at Uhlorn Funeral Home and the Library.
We are continuing to collect Sunday Paper Coupons for a Senior Class Project of Kendal Schumacher's. Just drop them by or leave them in the return drop box at the back of the building.
On a final note, the Library will be closed this Saturday.
