Thank you! Kroger’s Community Rewards Program at Northwest Library

Kroger check at Northwest branch library

Northwest Library was recently presented with a check from Kroger’s Community Rewards Program. The Northwest Friends Of The Library, in conjunction with Kroger’s Community Rewards Program has earned over $2,500.00 for our library in the last year.

Thank you to all of our dedicated patrons who used their Kroger’s Plus Card to donate a portion of their Kroger's purchases to for the library.

Donations go to fund projects in our library like our camel ride, story times, furniture, and supplies for our library. So thank you all once again for helping the Northwest library. Your support and dedication enrich our community.  

Sitting pretty at Northwest Library

NW bench

Help us say a big Thank You to the Northwest Friends Of The Library for providing us with a new park bench for our library. Our NW Friends were kind enough to purchase a bench for us and the county's Support Services got it installed for us out front along the walkway by our tree. Now we have a place to sit in a shaded area outside the library!

Book Talk Bits

Hooray! What a summer we are planning for Adults. Those with I pad, Kindle, Nooks, or other e-reader device or I phone. We are calling on you to be in the spot light sharing your book with other readers in the book talk.  All you will need to do is tell a snippet about the book you have read on your device. Do not tell all just enough to get us interested in the book. Each person attending will share their own book. We will do this on the Second Monday in June, July, and August at 2:00 PM. Don’t be shy it’s all about sharing your love for books.  We will call ourselves “The Techie Book Invaders.” Interested persons contact Gwendolyn here at the Northwest Branch Library.

Dates: June 10, 2013, July 8, 2013, August 12, 2013 @2:00 PM
