We have a lot going on at the Drake Library right now! Summer Reading Program is going strong. At last count we have 201 kids signed up. Registration is ongoing and free, so come on in and get signed up! The program is for kids ages 0-15. They track their hours of reading and receive a prize for every hour spent reading.
Monday June 8th is our Superhero story time. We will be doing super hero stuff with capes, arm cuffs, super hero names and other fun events. It starts at 2:00 p.m and runs about an hour.
Friday June 12th is our free Family Movie night. Despicable Me will be on the big screen. Free popcorn and water will be provided. Movie starts at 6:30 p.m. in the meeting room on the top floor of the library.
All of our Summer Reading Program events are paid for and sponsored by Friends of the Drake Library. Friends are a dedicated group of people that believe in the importance of the library and the need for quality summer edu-tainment for area kids.
Bake Sale for Books will be Friday June 19th at the Wal-Mart in Centerville, Iowa. Friends are asking for donation of baked goods to be dropped off the day before (Thursday June 18, 2015) at the Drake Library during the normal operating hours of 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.
The actual bake sale will start Friday morning at Wal-Mart at 9:00 a.m. All proceeds benefit the library 100 percent.
Also stop by and put some “Drake” dollars on the tree to help grow money for new books at the library. Who says money can’t buy happiness?
