Are you doing Spring cleaning? Trying to make a little more room throughout your house or garage? Sometimes we have things that we'd like to get rid of but are just too nice to throw away, and yet we want them gone. Now you can donate them to the "Rummage for Reading" table. Put a price on it, drop it off at the library. There is a two-fold benefit, out of your home, and raising money for the library also. Due to limited space we are not accepting any clothing or electronics at this time. If you have any questions about what can or cannot be donated give us a call at 920-394-3281 Monday through Thursday afternoons from 1pm to 6pm. All profits from "Rummage for Reading" will be used to purchase new materials for the library.
Money Smart Week is celebrated at libraries & schools throughout Wisconsin this week. Money Smart Week is a public awareness campaign of the Federal Reserve Bank of Chicago, supported in Wisconsin by the Governor's Council on Financial Literacy, the Wis. Dept. of Financial Institutions, the Wis. Office of the Commissioner of Insurance, Wisconsin Library Services Inc. (WiLS), and hundreds of local organizations. The Big Read program began in the Fox Cities in 2009. Each year public librarians, teachers, and others distribute thousands of financial literacy books to children and families. It is our hope that kids will repeatedly ask family members to read the book to them, which in turn provides opportunities for families to discuss saving, spending, and appropriate money management. This year's book is "Just Saving My Money" by Mercer Mayer. When Little Critter wants a new skateboard, Dad tells him that he needs to save his own money to buy it. From feeding the dog to selling lemonade, Little Critter learns the value of a dollar. Any child coming to story hour at the Kingston Library on Thursday, April 27th, at 4:30pm will receive a copy of this book.
