Support boosts Moose Pass library

The Moose Pass Public Library would like to thank all the people at the Summer Solstice Festival for purchasing used books and donating to match the $1,000 grant for non-fiction books we received from the Seward Community Foundation. We will continue the book sale throughout the summer with new items being added weekly. We have achieved 70 percent of our goal. Please help us to obtain our goal of $1,000.

If anyone as any suggestions about the types of books or particular authors you would like to see in our library, you can send an email to bookmoose@seward.net and we will add them to the list.

The library is open the following times: Monday 2-6 p.m.; Tuesday 3-6 p.m.; Wednesday 11 a.m.-7 p.m.; Thursday 3-6 p.m.; Friday 10 a.m.-3 p.m.; Sunday 10 a.m.-2 p.m. and 3-6 p.m.. Thank you to Jill, Mary, Debbie, Marie and Kerri for giving your time to keep the library open.

We are located on the pavilion side of the community hall in downtown Moose Pass.

The Summer Reading Program is underway. The theme is “One World, many Stories.” We have 20 kids signed up for our program and started by making a passport book for the kids to write about their adventures in reading. They have been very busy this summer reading about other cultures and countries. We will be having an event on August 10; this will be the end of the program with Lunch at the Library. All kids are invited. Every child signed up will get a prize for all the reading they and their families have done this summer. Our children are the future readers and patrons of libraries. Please encourage a child to read today.
