Spring and summer are yard sale season. Lots of advertisements for sales every week. If you have a yard sale or are cleaning out your house, remember the Drake Library accepts donations of books. We cannot come out in the community and pick them up, but donations may be dropped off at the library.
The books are evaluated by the staff. If we don’t add them to the library’s collection, we put them in the book nook. Books are sold for .10 cents each or a dollar per bag. All proceeds benefit the library
This year’s Summer Reading Program theme is “Every Hero has a Story”. The superhero theme will be present in the activities planned. The library will be providing capes to the readers. The superhero capes will be made out of sheets. The library is seeking donations of plain colored flat sheets. Sheets may be dropped off to the library. All sizes of sheets are needed.
JeNel has lots of activities planned for the Summer Reading Program. All children in Appanoose County are invited to participate in this fun free program. Friends of the Drake Public Library financially sponsor the event and some prizes are donated by area businesses. For more information, call JeNel at the library at 641-856-6676.
