Did you know that we have our very own author here at the library? If you come into the library on Saturdays you will see Hannah behind the counter. She has completed her first book and if you happened to have missed her book signing last month she still has copies available. We also have a copy in the library for patrons to check out.
Join us on November 17th from 9AM-2PM for A Frontier Christmas. There will be vendors in the library, a basket raffle, and a bake sale. There will also be vendors at the Douglass Community Building and in the Douglass High School Commons. Be sure to walk around the car show and then stay for the parade and chili feed.
Douglass parents-you can now get free books for your kids! Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library will mail them a new book once a month through 2019. Children birth up to five years of age in zip code 67039 are eligible.
Sign up today at unitedwayplains.org/imaginationlibrary or stop by the library for a form that can be mailed in. Thank you to United Way for sponsoring this wonderful program!
