We Are So Much Larger Than Our Walls questions@heyworthlibrary.com

Weekly Newsletter ~ March 6, 2013

We are thrilled with the recent donation from Heyworth resident Carl Hinshaw of the 1878-1881 farm journal of H.A. Karr of Heyworth.  This journal was transcribed and printed in the Heyworth Buzz last year by Lona Soice also of Heyworth.  Last week Martha and Steve Brown of Heyworth were conducting an early spring cleaning and came across a booklet titled: 1926 “A History of Heyworth”.  The Browns have also donated this original copy to our local history room.  We are grateful for donations such as these to preserve and showcase our shared history.  If you have an item or items that you would consider donating to our local history collection please see Beth Porter.

Happy Birthday Dr. Geisel Seuss!  We have our winners of the Dr. Seuss book drawing sponsored by the local General Federated Women’s Club of Heyworth.  Colin Fitzgerald was the winner of McElligot’s Pool.  Abby Martens received Six by Seuss, and Stephanie Company was given Mr. Brown Can Moo! Can You?.  Congratulations to our winners and a sincere thank you to our General Federated Women’s Club for providing this opportunity to celebrate a wonderful author who continues to inspire many great readers.

The last month of the Winter READ is here!  Get your game sheet or reading log turned in by March 31 to be entered in our drawing for one of six exclusive Heyworth Library mugs!
