The book sale/bake sale recently held at the Menlo Public Library was reported as successful with the Friends Bake Sale bringing in $614.21 and $403 was raised by the sale of books.  Some supporters who did not buy either books or food also made contributions, which added to the pot.

Library Director Annette Murphy thanks the Friends of the Menlo Library for the baked goodies with her favorite being the pineapple upside down cake cheesecake.  Everything was appreciated and no goodies were left over Murphy added.

Upcoming events scheduled include an Early Out Movie to be shown this Wednesday, Teen Night will be held April 18 and an Early Literacy Story Hour is scheduled for April 24.

Murphy announced that plans are underway for the Summer Reading Program to be held in June that will include pizza, prizes, and a pool party for the children who complete the program.  There will be extra programming on Wednesdays in June with the theme “Dig Into Reading” and includes lots of ideas that feature digging.

Murphy says the public should look for some unique fun at the library this summer.  Murphy plans to hold playful learning workshops for children that will implement engineering skills.  Watch for details on an upcoming catapult-building workshop followed by a catapult-building contest Murphy added.
