The Friends of the Library Annual Plant Sale was a huge success this year! They raised almost $800. for their projects! Thank you to everyone that worked at the plant sale, and THANK YOU to everyone in the community who bought plants. The Friends of the Library do so much for the library. They sponsor our Summer Reading Program. They also purchase computers, books, dvd’s, and donate to the state of Kansas Library to purchase e-books. Those are just a few of the wonderful things the Friends of the Library do!
We’re pleased to share with you a brand new children’s library experience! It’s called “Hoopla for Kids”. It’s the place where parents and kids, alike, will be able to discover all the great hoopla kids’ content, with one swipe.
Every title in each format-Video(movies & TV shows), Music, and Books (audiobooks, eBooks, and comics)—has been selected and brought together in one place to give kids a single environment where their young minds can explore and discover their world, and maybe themselves, through digital media.
The first step toward discovery: KIDS MODE
Kids Mode is a discovery tool to find family-appropriate content.
Visit your “Settings” & flip the toggle to put hoopla into Kids Mode on your device.
This only affects the device and not your account.
Our hope is that hoopla Kids Mode will become a hoopla happy place for everybody!
Kids will be happy because they can easily find, follow, and enjoy their favorite characters, stories, and songs!
Parents will be happy because they can feel confident letting kids explore and discover on their own!
The Wellsville City Library building fund has been steadily “building”. The library, combined with help from the Friends of the Library, has almost $230,000.00. The building goal has been an estimated $509,000.00.
The library has never used tax funds to purchase a building. It has always been done solely through donations. We would like to build the proposed addition with 100% donations, however if that is not possible, we would like to start looking at grants to help us reach our goal.
The population of Wellsville in 2010 was 1857. There is about $279,000.00 left to raise. If you divide $279,000.00 by the population that is an $150.24 per person.
Sometimes we are so close and yet so far…..
This seems like a goal that can be reached in the not so distant future if we all work together!
