(November 7, 2010) Thanks to everyone who shopped at the library's fall book sale during the past week. You found many interesting things to purchase and raised just over $1000 for the library to use for the purchase of new materials for you to check out and enjoy. A special thanks to the many generous library patrons who donated books, CDs, DVDs, and VHS tapes for this book sale, you contributions ensured that eager shoppers found many different things to choose from.
(November 1, 2010) The library's Fall Book Sale kicked off at 10:00 on Friday, October 29. The selection this year is bigger and better than ever, with books for all ages and interests, as well as VHS tapes for adults and children, music CDs, and DVDs. The sale runs through November 6, and on that day, Saturday, November 6, everything goes for $1 a bag. All book sale proceeds are used to purchase new library materials for you to check out and enjoy, and to support library programs for all ages.
(October 6, 2010) A reminder that the library will be closed on Monday, October 11, as a furlough day without pay for all library staff. No library materials are due on days the library is closed. This is the third of five furlough days all staff will take in 2010 as part of the library's measures to reduce spending due to the State of Ohio funding cuts to libraries. In addition, all staff are working 10% fewer hours than usual throughout the year.
To enter a prize drawing, family members work together to read fifty books checked out from Minerva Public Library between September 7, 2010 and October 22, 2010. Official entry blanks with complete rules are available at circulation desks. Prizes are on display in the showcase next to the library entrance. Learn more.
