Girl Scouts Create Garden for Northwest Branch Library


Many thanks go out to Cadette Girl Scout Troop #14318, of the Wildflowers Community, Girl Scouts of San Jacinto Council for their support of the Northwest Branch Library!  Last Saturday, despite stormy weather and power outages at the library, they held a Storybook Run to raise money for a library garden and then stayed to plant the garden.

Shining a Light on the Library

Customers Shoping for BooksThis past Saturday the Friends of the Northwest Library held a book sale. The money made from book sales goes directly towards supporting the library. With those funds the community is able to enjoy additional materials for checkout or attend special programs. So you can imagine how worried everyone was to learn the building lost power the day of the sale!

Determined to carry on, the Friends held the sale, and the people came. Armed with phones and flashlights, shoppers searched for those special titles. In the end the Friends ended up with one of its most successful book sales in years. It just goes to show that you can't keep a book lover or library supporter down.
