Kelly Thomas, 21 months, of Ozark was the winner of the Friends of the Christian County Library fall basket. Kelly was dressed in her Halloween costume and was full of smiles upon receiving the basket and a purple book bag. Parents, Brian and Richelle, read to Kelly from her favorite books on fairy tales, nursery rhymes, and cats and dogs. Visits to the library are at least once a week.
FOL is a non-profit volunteer organization that provides additional funding to the library through two book sales each year. The next meeting of Friends of the Library will be on Saturday, November 16, at 10:00 a.m. in the library meeting room. At this meeting there will be a recap of 2013, discussion of activities for the coming year, and FOL officers elected for 2014. Join Friends for only $5 a year for a family membership and attend the meeting to share ideas on supporting the library’s programs and activities. Questions?
