Time for Fall Fundraising! November 22 is the date!

Twice each year the Friends of the Patterson Memorial Library hold a fundraising event to raise funds for our library's needs - this year's sale is on November 22 from 8-Noon in the community center. 

The funds raised are used throughout the year for many programs: the summer reading program, card creators equipment, Stamping equipment, seeds for the seed library and for the After School Program, which, although we run it a reduced number of days, is still expensive to operate and maintain (the children are so hungry!).

Not Your Momma's Library!

We are forging ahead with lots of new things!

So far this year we started a seed library, started circulating bake ware and now we have rubber stamps and greeting card blanks - so you can check those out and create a handmade card for the holidays! 

Cake Pans, Bake Ware, Jello Molds! Time to check them out!

Well, we got the first 9 cake pans all ready to go!  They are all character cake pans, but we have some loaf pans, springform pans, Jell-o molds, etc coming soon!

Why?  When I was interviewing in Iowa, one of the things they told me about was their baking pan library.  What a great idea!  Suppose you have a young boy who loves Spiderman - THIS year - now you don't have to run out and by a pan, you come to the library and check one out!  Barbie?  No problem.  Lighning McQueen.  Piece of cake!
