FRIENDS OF THE LIBRARY

Many libraries have “Friends of the Library” organizations. 

VALENTINE PUBLIC LIBRARY LOVES THEIR FRIENDS!
They are workers behind some of the wonderful things happening at the library.

HERE’S THEIR NEWEST PROJECT!!!
BOOKS FOR BABIES – HOW DOES IT WORK? – WHY DO IT?
The Friends of the Valentine Public Library are giving this book to every new baby born at the Cherry County Hospital.

Our FRIENDS believe that early literacy is key in the development of children. Teaching children to love books and to read them is a powerful tool that will benefit them their entire lives.  It is never too early to start so…..JUST DO IT!

DAD READING TO CHILD

How cool is that! Donations to the Friends help to support projects like this one.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY MONOPOLY!!!

MONOPOLY

Monopoly was first marketed by Parker Bros. in November 1935. The history of Monopoly can be traced back to 1903 when an American woman named Elizabeth (Lizzie) J. Maggie Phillips created it to be used as an educational tool to illustrate the negative aspects of concentrating land in private (monopolies). 

Who knew – a little piece of trivia for your November!
