Ongoing and Upcoming Events

Happy One Year Anniversary, WME Community Library!

We opened June 8, 2015. What does our ongoing growth look like?

We now serve 75 families.

                 We have over 1,000 books and multimedia items in our system.

                  We have checked out 1, 015 items to our patrons since we opened our doors last year!

Thank you to all of our board members and all of you who have donated time, books, and various resources to our library. We love our communities and hope to continue to be even more better able to serve them.

 

Ongoing Events:

Our Summer Reading Program runs from May 31-July 30. Your children don’t have to be members to participate. Simply bring your kiddoes in and as long as they can tell us one sentence about a book they read, they will receive:

1 coupon for a child’s cone from Treats R Us

The choice of 1 item from our prize box

& a chance to enter their name in a drawing to win a gift card.

 

Please also donate to our library via crowd funding. No donation is too small. For more information and to make an online donation, please copy and paste this link to your browser:  https://fundly.com/the-little-library-that-could

We Need Your Help

loveurlibrary

Last week, we began an online crowd funding effort through the Fundly site. Please follow this link: The Little Library That Could

 

Nearly a year after opening our doors, we’ve grown. We now have over 3,000 book titles and media available to our patrons. Eighty families are signed up with our Little Library That Could. We offer public access to computers, free Wi-Fi, free workshops such as yoga, summer reading programs, story times, and family movie and craft events. Much of what we offer is available to everyone in our communities, regardless of membership. (Membership is only $5 for your entire family, good for one year).

We really do love our communities and wish to better serve them. The WME Community Library has great plans for the future:  Mentoring programs, after school homework help, computer literacy, internet courses, free workshops from more yoga to genealogy, and more.

We want to help our communities thrive.

What can you do to help?

  • Donate to our online fundraiser. No amount is too small.
  • Donate new books (books that have come out in the last five years) and classic titles for all age groups.
  • Attend our fundraisers.
  • Share our online fundraiser, other events, and library hours on social media.
  • Volunteer. Please. We need volunteers and love them for sharing their time and resources.

  • Culvers Fundraiser: eat at Culvers June 28th from 5-7pm and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to the library
