Karen Greenwood from Ozark was the winner of the Mother’s Day basket drawing sponsored by Friends of the Library (FOL).

Karen Greenwood
Karen teaches history, literature, and bible classes to 5th and 10th graders.  She has been coming to the Christian County Library since her daughter, now a junior in high school, attended preschool programs offered by the library.  When not involved in her teaching duties, Karen enjoys reading historical fiction, biographies, and the classics. 

FOL will have a Father’s Day basket on display at the library for a special dad.  Starting June 1 visitors are encouraged to come in and sign-up to win.

FOL is a nonprofit volunteer organization that provides additional funding to the library through two book sales per year.  Funds are used to support the library’s summer reading program, other events, and enhancements needed by the library.  To support library services to Christian County teens, FOL has bought a Nintendo Wii video game system.  This new teen program, Wii Play Free Play, will begin in June.  Contact the library at (417) 581-2432 to learn more about library activities and to find out how to become a member of Friends of the Library.
