Summer Reading Registration
2014 Summer Reading Theme:
"FIZZ BOOM READ"
Public libraries, through their summer reading programs, put books in the hands of children. This is the best antidote for the ‘summer slide’ in children’s reading achievement. Access to books and library programs over the summer results in more reading which, in turn, results in improved reading skills.

Debt Reduction/Endowment Fund Campaign
The title of our new fundraising campaign is Larsen Family Public Library Debt Reduction/Endowment Fund Campaign. It will run through October 31. The purpose of the endowment fund is to establish a growing base from which only the interest will be expended. the long-term goal of an endowment is for it to be the major sustainability cushion for the library. Of the donations received, 80% will go to the $180,000 debt incurred during construction of the library building in 2011, and 20% to the endowment. However, if a gift is designated for one or the other, it will be applied as designated. We have coin containers that need to be filled..once a container is filled, the contents will go into the treasure chest in the library and a raffle ticket will be given to the donor. On October 31, a raffle will be held and one lucky person will win a new television. There are lots of other events in planning to try to raise funds to keep our library sustainable. Each year we have to pay a mortgage payment of $16,000. Thank you to all of the people on the fundraising committee working hard for their community!
