Weekly Newsletter ~ July 18, 2013

Have you completed your Heyworth Public Library Program Passport?  Bring them in and receive your Beanie Baby.  We have a tub of them in the office to choose from.  The Beanies on display in the library will not be available until July 30th.  We have MANY to choose from in the office from our friends at Worn Again, Too!  You may turn in your passport anytime between today and August 31st to receive your Beanie.  Don’t forget to visit The Simpkin’s Military Museum to receive an extra passport sticker.

Children will give us their passports at the time of choosing their Beanie, and we will display all of the passports until July 30th.  Children can then pick up their passports on July 30th or during the month of August when they receive their reading log prizes.

This past Tuesday morning we celebrated all the different wheels that take us places to travel…especially those that we see daily in our community that keep us safe.  We want to thank Chris Strange for bringing her big yellow bus, Chris Lane, police chief of Heyworth, for bringing a police vehicle, Nick Riordan and Clayton Richards of the Randolph Fire Department for bringing a fire truck, and the Village of Heyworth for providing the Village “gator” and cones to provide a safe area on the village parking lot for our children to explore all these “wheels”!  It was a great community effort to entertain and educate our kids.  The library staff and children who attended our “wheels” program THANK YOU!
