Weekly Newsletter ~ September 5, 2012

We are honored and grateful for donations made to celebrate life.  Soon you will be able to sit on benches outside each of our entry ways.  These benches were gifts from the Glan family to honor Maxine Glan, and the Van Winkle family to honor Thelma Van Winkle.  Thank you to Cathy and Dennis Wentworth of Downs for their recent gift funds to purchase books in memory of Robert Crum and Mike Burleson.  The library greatly appreciates the gifts and memorials donated to the Heyworth Public Library.  It is through these gifts and memorials that we can offer services and materials that go beyond the ordinary. See Beth Porter or Alice Gray for more information to make gift or memorial donations.
