Heart of America Library News
The U.S. Census Bureau will be at the Heart of America Library on Wednesday, Aug. 5 from 12:30 p.m. to 1:30 p.m. to answer questions or assist people with doing their census report. This is a good opportunity to ask questions if you have them and to take care of getting your information reported if you have been procrastinating.
The Heart of America Library has usually had a BIG book sale once each year, usually at the time of city-wide garage sales. Since the city-wide garage sale did not happen this past spring, we had a small sale at Crazy Days, and it went very well. We have decided to have smaller sales more often, and our first will be Aug. 11-13, Tuesday to Thursday, in the West Room. Stop by and see what we have I know there will be one table dedicated to inspirational books and two others with a variety of genre, some donated and some weeded from our collection. These will not be the same books that we had out at the Crazy Day sale.
You still have time to enroll your child in the Striving Reader Literacy Committee summer session to be held Tuesday and Wednesday, Aug. 4 and 5. Pre-registration is required. Please contact Gail Rham at 701-208-1304 for more information and to register.
