The Soldotna Rotary Club is seeking donations of working digital cameras and photo printers for the Kenai Peninsula Borough School District's art program. Equipment may be dropped off at Sweeney's Clothing or Joe Kashi law office. For more information, call 398-0480.

Kids reading program continues

Kids are invited to join the Triumvirate Bookstore Frequent Reader Program. Upon signing up, kids can pick out one free book, a reading calendar and reading program rules at the bookstore in the Peninsula Center Mall in Soldotna. Bookstore hours are noon to 6 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday.

Each time a reader returns their initialed calendar (weekly or monthly) to the bookstore, they can pick out another free book and get their calendar punched. Get up to four extra punches each month for special activities like reading to a younger sibling, attending a storytelling session, reading to a nonparent adult or filling out a "kid's pick" sheet on your favorite book. For more information, call 953-7262.

Community members interested in donating a gift, a gift card or making a thank you card for the baskets may call Bill and Carol Keller at 262-0492 or 394-1072. Arrangements can be made to pick up donations.
