Weekly Highlights for March 27, 2017
The Library is happy to be partnering with the Holiday Angels for this Easter season. We have a display of Easter baskets that you can register to try to win. There are six adorable baskets for different age groups :ages 2-4, 5-7 and 8 and up. Drawings will take place on Saturday, April 8th after Lego Club. The Holiday Angels is a program for children living in the SCC School District whose families are experiencing financial struggles. This program is sponsored by the Lions Club of Roberts and Hammond, WI.
Food for Fines: During the month of April bring in any non –perishable food item to receive $1 off of your fines. One item = $1 off. It’s a win-win, you can pay down any fines you might have and food shelves will be stocked for the upcoming summer months. If you don’t have any fines and still want to participate, we would love to have you donate your food items.
