May 24, 2017 Library Newspaper Article for Eclipse

   We extend a big thank you to all who attended the Fraud Watch program at the library last week! It was an evening full of useful tips on how to deal with a variety of scams and ways to protect ourselves from fraud.

   As the month of June creeps closer and closer, we’re working hard to create some ‘extra-special fun’ for our summer reading program…Build a Better World, Read! (See the photo of our sweet volunteer, painting the windows with some 'Build a Better World' fun!)  The registration for the program begins on Friday, June 2, from 11-5:30, and registration will continue throughout the month of June.  Schedules will go home with all elementary students attending Parkersburg Elementary School, so keep an eye on their book bags for this, as well as your email inbox for another reminder.  The schedules are also available at the library, and on our website:  www.parkersburg.lib.ia.us   (Click on the tab ‘Programs & Fun”).   The schedule will also be shared in the  newspaper next week, and on Facebook (Kothe Memorial-Parkersburg Public Library).  We’re excited to have you join us for fun activities, guest speakers, and more!
