Becky Miller of Nixa was the winner of the Friends of the Christian County Library Mother’s Day basket.  Becky works at United Healthcare and is the mother of two grown children.  She and her husband come to the library about every two weeks and enjoy picking out books on a variety of topics such as historical romances and mysteries, biographies, Amish living, quilting, and books on tape.   In the past six years she has checked out over 560 books from the library.  Her husband’s total is probably equally as impressive.

The next basket drawing will be for a Father’s Day basket.  Friends of the Library sponsor these drawings throughout the year.  FOL’s fundraising activities include two book sales each year.  The next book sale will be held October 12 through the 19.  Donated hardback and paperback books, DVDs, CDs, and audio books for the sale are being accepted at the library.  Funds are used to support the summer reading programs, various events, and enhancements to the library.
