Wakarusa Library Helps Patrons with Library Fines

by Shondra Brown on October 10, 2014

            Food for Fines will run October 20-25, with donations going to the Family Christian Development Center in Nappanee (serving the Wa-Nee school district).  For every non-perishable food item that is donated, patrons will receive $1 off their fines (not valid on lost or damaged items, with a maximum fine forgiveness of $20 per account).  Items most in need include cereal, peanut butter, macaroni and cheese, skillet dinners (Hamburger Helper, etc.), and canned meats (tuna, chicken, etc.).

Story Hour children will hear stories about bears on October 27 and October 28 at 10:15 a.m.  The sessions are for children ages 3 – 5 years old who are registered for the program.

            Pumpkins will be the theme for Beginning Story Hour to be held on October 29 at 10 a.m. This program is for registered children 18 – 36 months old and their accompanying adult.

            There is still time to register for the Buying & Selling on Ebay class to be held on October 23 at 6:30 p.m.  Registered patrons will learn the basics needed to get started on Ebay.
