Little Friends, Big Hearts

A big thanks to Hannah and Kayla for their contribution to the Bear Creek Friends of the Library carpet fund. Hannah and Kayla raised $20 each selling cookies at a bake sale in their neighborhood. Staff at the Bear Creek Library are very grateful for the girls' hard work and contributions, which may make them our youngest benefactors. Thank you also to the Bear Creek Friends of the Library and to Hanna and Kayla's  mother Michelle, who has worked hard to garner support in the community and among moms at storytimes for the work done by the friends.

TAB!

Hey!  The TAB needs members.  What is the TAB, you may ask?  It is a group of teenagers who advise the library as to what they would like the library to do for teens as well as help out with program preporation and actually helping at children's programs.  The teens earn volunteer hours for school or for wherever else. 

On October 28th at 5pm, we have a meeting which the point of will be to prepare decorations for the Harry Potter Party on Nov. 15th and discuss what programs the teens want to have in the library.

If you have anymore questions, just contact me at jfinch@hcpl.net.
